EMOS-The European Masters in Official Statistics

Markus Zwick
The European Master in Official Statistics (known by the acronym EMOS) is an infrastructure project and aims at developing a programme for Training and Education in Official Statistics.

This paper provides information on the activities being carried out to establish the EMOS and some preliminary ideas on how to link it with the European Statistical Trainee Program (ESTP).
