Research work at IAB
The Directorate is responsible for the IAB Research Programme as a whole and provides inputs as regards new research projects. The Heads of the various Research Departments define the major long-term fields of research of their units in coordination with the Directorate. It is on this basis that research projects at the level of the individual Research Department and involving different units are established.
In determining subject matter, the suggestions and wishes of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (Bundesministerium für Arbeit und Soziales) and of the Federal Ministry of Health (Bundesministerium für Gesundheit) are taken into account. Further inputs come from the Federal Employment Agency (Bundesagentur für Arbeit) which has a high requirement for scientifically-based advice. Lastly, important impetus for research is also provided by the Self-government Board of the Federal Employment Agency (Selbstverwaltung der BA).
