European Work and Employment Research Centre

The DYNAMO project is a ten-country comparative study of the 'Dynamics of national employment models' (DYNAMO), led by Steffen Lehndorff and Gerhard Bosch at the Institut Arbeit und Technik in Germany. Starting in August 2004, it has three years of funding from the European Commission, 6 th Framework Programme, Priority 7 Research Area 3: 'the variety of paths towards a knowledge society'.

The project seeks to a) develop a joint theoretical framework for comparative analysis of national models of employment; b) analyse recent changes in national employment models and assess the main drivers of change; c) undertake an empirical study of employing organizations within selected sectors to assess whether or not there is evidence of sector specific responses to pressures for change; and d) assess the prospects for convergence towards a European model and the effectiveness of the European Employment Strategy.
