MOLIERE – Monitoring Learning and Innovation in European Restructuring

MOLIERE Project Presentation

The Monitoring Learning and Innovation in European Restructuring project (MOLIERE) is based on the fact that there is a lack of systematic and updated information on the policies and practices of restructuring in European Member States.

Available case studies, reports and national overviews provide focused snapshots of particular best practices, but whether they still constitute examples of best practices is more difficult to determine. Previous reports also lack a coherent analytical framework to assess the impact of implemented policies and practices for labour markets and the economy as a whole.

The present project is therefore designed to monitor the longer-term impact and developments on a national level to provide European policy makers with updated and solid information to enhance the ability to design effective policy responses. The project is supported by the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and the Dutch Trade Union Confederation (FNV).

MOLIERE Main Objectives

The Monitoring Learning and Innovation in European Restructuring project (MOLIERE) aims at:

  • A better understanding of the differences in the practice of restructuring in various European Member States
  • Facilitating the transfer of innovative practices and measures of anticipating and managing change and restructuring across national borders
  • To provide updated and harmonized information for social partners and policy makers at national and European level to assist them in policy formation and the design of a European policy framework on anticipating and managing change and restructuring

MOLIERE Project is a project funded by the EU DG Employment, social affairs and inclusion.
