Standing Research Committee for the Public Employment Service Austria

With the outbreak of the pandemic-related crisis in Austria in March 2020, a "Standing Research Committee" was established on behalf of the Public Employment Service Austria (AMS) and the Federal Ministry of Labour. This committee takes on the task of developing and processing expertise in the area of analysis and forecasting of labour market developments as well as the possible use of measures and initiatives to combat the labour market consequences of the crisis and to remedy the longer-term consequences, and to discuss these in a committee of experts. The Standing Research Committee is coordinated by WIFO and consists of experts from the AMS, the Federal Ministry of Labour and the institutes IHS, Synthesis and WIFO.
