The Institute for Structural Research is open to all forms of cooperation. We conduct many research studies in collaboration with Polish universities and other institutions and participate in international projects. Our role in partnership with other entities differs within each project: we can act as project leaders, participants or donors.

Our economic analysis knowledge supported public administration representatives
looking for a thorough analysis of the outcomes of introduced policies and grounds for merit talks
on the planned public policy. Private enterprises also benefit from our expertise.
We offer credible research for those who wish to base business decisions regarding the market environment on facts and data.

Youth employment partnerSHIP

Youth employment partnerSHIP – evaluation studies in Spain, Hungary, Italy and Poland
is a four-year project in which IBS, as a leader, researched the labour market of young people in four European countries. Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway funded the project under the EEA Youth Employment Fund and the Norwegian Funds. The Fund was established to promote sustainable
and high-quality youth employment in Europe. The project resulted in numerous publications, workshops, seminars and courses.

The conference in Brussels was the project’s crowning achievement, which attracted representatives of numerous research centres and government institutions from national and pan-European levels as well as representatives of NGOs.

Jobs and Development: Creating Multi-Disciplinary Solutions

It is a network of numerous research institutions closely cooperating under the auspices of
the World Bank with representatives of authorities in countries scattered around the world.
IBS is one of the most active members and co-organizers of events.

The program aims to contribute to the emergence of interdisciplinary solutions for job challenges worldwide. Supporting the cooperation of researchers, private sector representatives, trade unions, and other partners helps tackle the labour market challenges. The network of contacts allows
for sharing experiences and developing and providing tools and solutions to enhance the global dialogue on employment strategies.

Jobs and Development members meet each year at a different place in the world at a large conference. So far, talks in Warsaw, Washington, Cape Town and Bogota have attracted the attention of a large audience.

Distributional Impact of Carbon Pricing in Central and Eastern Europe

The project aims to support the implementation of the assumptions of the energy transition, taking into account the fair sharing of costs and benefits of this process and the protection of the weakest social groups.

Researchers analyze the impact of rising carbon costs in the EU on groups susceptible to the increase in energy prices. The analysts concentrate on the example of four EU Member States (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland and Romania) with higher than the EU average level of dependence
on fossil fuels and higher than the EU intermediate level of energy poverty. The project’s essential part is conducting a public consultation on key findings with relevant decision-makers at national
and EU levels.

Project funded by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) under the European Climate Initiative (EUKI).

Skills shortages and real wages under pressure – the OECD Employment Outlook in Central and Eastern Europe

IBS Warsaw and the OECD Berlin Centre conducted an important CEE network event discussing pressing matters
in the face of the pandemic crisis and migration caused by Russian aggression in Ukraine.
