1 Eurostat State of play of the ESSnet programme …and the new ESSnet strategy ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 1

2 Eurostat Overview Workshop 2011 Evaluation 2012 Communication survey 2012 New ESSnet strategy Top-down ESSnets Centres of Comptence New collaborative portal ESSnet programme for 2013 ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 2

3 Eurostat Conclusions ESSnet workshop 2011 (Section 10 of final report) Bottom-up vs. Top-down approaches Should ESSnets follow a general strategy (and if so, which strategy?) or focus on specific needs? Communication, collaboration and coordination Especially projects with similar content (Thematic workshops; support from Eurostat project managers; Steering Groups.) Centres of Competence and knowledge transfer The last link in the chain, ensuring the sustainability of results. Administrative burden ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 3

4 Eurostat 2012 ESSnet assessment report ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 4 Main authors: Professor Risto Lehtonen Professor Beat Hulliger Published by Eurostat (link provided on the CROS portal)

5 Eurostat 2012 assessment report – findings ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 5 Coordination problems (“A tendency of fragmentation of ESSnet projects is still visible”) –within large projects –between ESSnet projects –between ESSnet and other projects –lack of exchange with other disciplines/areas But also good examples: + EGR and Profiling Scientific aspects –lacking in certain “architecture” ESSnet projects (“However, it is not necessary so that an ESSnet action must have a TTK aspect”) + impressive in other “architecture” ESSnet projects (as well as certain “sectoral” ESSnet projects)

6 Eurostat 2012 assessment – findings (cont.) ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 6 Cost/benefit analysis –“Costs/benefits of implementation are very seldom quantified” Contribution to the ESS Not surprisingly: + “Architecture” ESSnet projects are generally viewed as contributing well to standardisation/harmonisation –“sectoral” projects are assessed to have a relatively narrow impact on the ESS as a whole

7 Eurostat 2012 ESSnet communication survey ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 7 Invitation to all ESSnet portal users Response rate < ½ % (23 / 500)  Useful for hypothesis generation Other interesting survey initiatives (no managerial link with Eurostat)

8 Eurostat 2012 ESSnet comm. survey – findings ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 8 General satisfaction (generalisable?) Internet fora “interesting and useful, but…” Lack of time, alerts needed, lack of awareness, too many existing fora, lack of purpose. Suggestion: Discussion “leader” for each forum Reflection: Continuous discussion won’t happen; “leader” to launch discussion when needed. The portal should have a very brief summary on its home page about recent ESSnet activities.

9 Eurostat Comm. survey – findings (continued) ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 9 ESSnet newsletter welcomed. Suggestions: Thematic summaries of ESSnets New calls for proposals for ESSnet projects What’s new: Short summaries of deliverables and meetings. What to expect in the next few months: deliverables, meetings Notification service on the portal, with possibility to subscribe. First newsletter issue: Summary of ESSnets and how they fit into the ESS strategy. (Subsequent issues could then focus on individual ESSnets and how they could be useful to different NSIs)

11 Eurostat Overview (again!) Workshop 2011 Evaluation 2012 Communication survey 2012 New ESSnet strategy Top-down ESSnets Centres of Comptence New collaborative portal ESSnet programme for 2013 ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 11 Plenty of input… …so what has been done?

12 Eurostat New ESSnet strategy (ESSC 2012/13/2/EN) Adopted by the ESSC (24 May 2012): 1.New type of ESSnet projects: ”Top-down” projects (”Vision Implementation stream”) 2.Centres of Competence 3.The normal (”bottom-up”) stream remains open ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 12

13 Eurostat 1. The ESS VIPs ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 13 Focus on a few projects bringing high value added to the Vision implementation Results should be generic enough to be reusable in other contexts Measurable contribution to common ESS infrastructure and implementation of the ESS vision (Eurostat) Vision Implementation projects (VIP) ESSnet projects ESS VIPs

14 Eurostat 1. The Vision Implementation stream ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 14 The ”top-down” ESSnet projects will be the main instrument for collaborative work in the ESS in the ESS VIP projects The ”top-down” part of the ESSnet programme is part of the ESS VIP programme (for 2013: SIMSTAT and Validation … and ESBRs?) Same principles as for the ESS VIPs: fewer, larger projects (Eurostat) Vision Implementation projects (VIP) ESSnet projects ESS VIPs

15 Eurostat 2. Centres of Competence Principles endorsed by ESSC in (May 2012) Pilot Centre of Competence in 2013 (DWH) (Possibly additional pilot Centres in 2014) Modalities to be elaborated Business case/technical conditions? Organisational setup? Human and financial resources? … will be treated at tomorrow’s panel discussion! ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 15

16 Eurostat 3. ”Bottom-up” ESSnet projects All current ESSnet projects are ”bottom-up” The ”bottom-up” stream is still open, but… …priority given to the Vision Implementation Stream! ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 16

17 Eurostat ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 17 CROS – the new collaborative portal Collaboration in research and methodology for official statistics … the one-stop shop for collaboration in Official Statistics Learn more about it at parallel session 6 tomorrow! ESSnet portal – ESSnet projects CROS portal – Research topics

18 Eurostat ESSnet programme for 2013 (Annex 3 to ESSC 2012/15/6/EN) Vision Implementation stream –ESSnet projects within the ESS VIPs on: SIMSTAT (presented tomorrow morning) Validation (presented tomorrow morning) Centres of Competence Pilot Centre of Competence on: Data Warehousing Outside the programme: ESS VIPs (such as ESBRs) and other topics within the framework of already approved ESSnet projects ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 18

19 Eurostat ESSnet programme consolidation 21 projects repsesented at this workshop –4 projects having ended/ending in 2012 –9 projects completed in projects launched in 2013 (foreseen) 14 projects running on 31 December 2013 (6/1/1 projects ending in 2014/2015/2016) ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 19

20 Eurostat The parallel sessions will now begin… 2 out of 3 sessions arranged around ESS VIP Take the opportunity to learn where your project fits into the ESS VIP programme what the opportunities are for future collaboration ESSnet Workshop 2012 Rome State of play of the ESSnet programme Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 20 Questions? Suggestions! Which input has not been sufficiently taken into account? Coffee?
