Operational Structure

The DEEP VIEW consortium as a whole expresses a wide European and transnational coverage suitable to grant a definition of knowledge and suggestions at European level and to disseminate project outputs in a European perspective.

The DEEP VIEW consortium involves 5 research centres as applicant and co-applicants (one per country included). These research centres have longstanding knowledge and expertise on the analysis of how social dialogue and collective bargaining is addressing the most relevant challenges in the world of work.

The lead applicant, NOTUS: Applied Social Research (Spain) is a research centre devoted to applied social research which gathers experts with longstanding expertise in the analysis of employment and labour market policies. NOTUS develops research activities and provides technical assistance using scientifically rigorous methodologies. Most Notus activities entail cooperation with social partners on a regular basis. In addition, NOTUS experts have been involved as Spanish national correspondents for Eurofound’s observatories on employment and industrial relations since their creation.

The Forschungs- und Beratungsstelle Arbeitswelt (FORBA) is an independent research institute specialising in social-science research on topical issues of work and employment. The institute is interdisciplinary and international in character, looking back on long-term cooperation with researchers in the EU and overseas. In terms of their training and background, FORBA’s academic staff cover sociology, political science, business administration and computer science, with research activities at the institute centering on both basic and applied research in these areas.

The NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities (FSCH) forms part of the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa.
The Faculty’s mission is one of public service to improve the academic level of citizens and, in particular, Portuguese citizens, in the areas of social sciences and humanities. The team share goals in fundamental and applied interdisciplinary research, centered in problem-solving. Their research stresses epistemological, theoretical and methodological concerns, but is also strongly oriented towards adding value to society.
