The European Master in Official Statistics (EMOS) is a network of Master programmes providing post-graduate education in the area of official statistics at the European level. EMOS is a joint project of universities and data producers in Europe. After two calls for interest, the network comprises 23 programmes in 15 countries.
EMOS was set up to strengthen the collaboration within academia and producers of official statistics and help develop professionals able to work with European official data at different levels in the fast-changing production system of the 21st century. The EMOS Master degree is based on learning outcomes which familiarise the graduates with the system of official statistics, production models, statistical methods and dissemination.
Universities offering EMOS Master degrees collaborate actively with the national statistical institutes to reduce the gap between theory and practice. Pertinent topics for Master thesis, internship in the area of official statistic, EMOS workshops and webinars offer a relevant mix of skills and knowledge for tomorrow’s official statisticians.
In July 2017, Eurostat awarded a one-year contract to the Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana (FELU). FELU will be responsible, among others, for organisation of the 2018 series of EMOS Webinars running between January–June 2018 and the 6th EMOS Workshop taking place on 6 March 2018 at the Hotel Slon – Elephant in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
