Following the success of the first webinar organised by the Universities of Trier and Pisa and Eurostat in 2013 (, the Universities of Manchester, Pisa and Trier in cooperation with Eurostat are organising a new spring school.

This time the focus will be topics of Official Statistics. The EMOS Spring School 2015 should contribute to the development of the European Master in Official Statistics (EMOS). The European Master in Official Statistics (EMOS) project is aimed at developing a programme for training and education in Official Statistics within existing Master programmes at European universities. EMOS represents a European network of universities and national statistical authorities working together to share and further develop issues of Official Statistics.

For the first EMOS call for interest published in August 2014, Universities were invited to submit a concept for the implementation of EMOS in their Master programmes, including the description of the EMOS core module. The learning outcomes developed by the Group of Experts further defined the requirements for the EMOS core module ( The lectures taking place during the course of one week across several sites should also provide an example of cooperation within the EMOS network.

The EMOS Spring School will be open to the following target groups and will use webinar facilities to increase accessibility to training:

• Master students, especially students of statistics, economics, sociology and mathematics;

• PhD students, especially students of economics, sociology and mathematics;

• Staff of Eurostat, National Statistical Institutes (NSIs) and other statistical authorities.
