European Construction Sector Observatory
The European Construction Sector Observatory (ECSO) is a 3-year (2015-2017) action under COSME. It aims to inform European policymakers and stakeholders on the market conditions and policy developments in the construction sector in the 28 EU countries, through regular analysis and comparative assessments.
The objectives of the Observatory are to:
- monitor market conditions and trends, and national/regional strategies related to the five thematic priorities of Construction 2020
- facilitate knowledge sharing and awareness on policy measures and initiatives that have an impact on the construction value chain.
ECSO profiles the construction industry in the 28 EU countries, and produces detailed Country Fact Sheets (CFS) for each country.
The database – under construction – will contain a list of policy measures that are being implemented in each member state to stimulate construction sector employment, growth and opportunities.
Full content on all EU countries will be available in late 2016/early 2017.
