The third call for applications for new universities in the EU Member States, EFTA and EU candidate countries to join the European Master in Official Statistics (EMOS) is now published and closes on 30 June 2018.
EMOS builds on nationally accredited Master programmes which deliver upon the EMOS learning outcomes to familiarise the graduates with the system of official statistics, production models, statistical methods and dissemination. The programmes also collaborate actively with the National Statistical Institutes or other producers of official statistics for relevant master thesis topics and internships in the sphere of official statistics.
The third call of applications emphasises the importance of addressing the rapidly changing landscape from design based production of official statistics to integrating different kinds of data sources. Universities wishing to join the 23 already EMOS labelled Master programmes in 15 countries may submit by 30 June 2018 their applications complete with accompanying documents as described in the EMOS call text, guide for applicants and application form available at https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/cros/content/emos_en.
