 Brief description of your activity focus
Changes in working life are at the core of FORBA’s research, and the institute covers both applied and basic research in an international context.

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
FORBA is an independent research institute, established in 1991 as a non-profit organisation specialising
in social science research in the area of working life. Currently, 16 researchers and 4 administrative and
support staff are working for the institute on a permanent full-time or part-time basis. Both in terms of
education and work experience the academic staff cover sociology, political science, business
administration, computer science and statistics. In part, researchers also teach as lecturers at different
universities and colleges in Vienna, Linz and Duisburg, Germany.
Changes in working life are at the core of FORBA’s research, and the institute covers both applied and
basic research in an international context and in an ongoing exchange with social stakeholders which
also includes consultancy services on job design and IT use in companies. The institute’s research covers
the following areas:
“Sustainable Worlds of Work and Life”
“Work, Gender, Politics”
“Work, Organisation, Transnationalisation”
“Technology Design and Data Protection”
FORBA is an acknowledged scientific institution. Its budget stems mainly from research funding that is
raised in competitive procedures at Austrian and European levels. Contractors and clients include, among
others, the European Commission, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working
Conditions, the Austrian Scientific Research Fund, the Austrian Federal Ministries for Science and
Research and for Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection, the Austrian Chamber of Labour.
Hence, a comparative and transnational outlook has been part of FORBA’s identity since 1994. Research
projects funded by the European Commission include: ‘Work organisation and restructuring in the
knowledge economy’ (WORKS), ‘Privatisation of Public Services and the Impact on Quality, Employment
and Productivity’ (PIQUE), ‘Dynamics of national employment models’ (DYNAMO), ‘Employees’ resources
and social rights in Europe’ (RESORE), ‘Socio-economic change, individual reactions and the appeal of the
extreme right’ (SIREN), ‘Resources, Rights and Capabilities: In search of social foundations for Europe’
(CAPRIGHT, 2007-2010), WALQING (Work and Life Quality in New and Growing Jobs, 2009-2012), WORKABLE
(Making Capabilities work, 2009-2012), SODIPER (Social Dialogue and Participation Strategies in the Global
Delivery Industry: Challenging Precarious Employment Relations, 2010-2011).
