A large number of people sat in a European Commission meeting.

Project overview

In January 2021, a new four year €5.6 million contract (annually renewable) was awarded to provide advice and support to the European Commission's European Platform tackling undeclared work. This renews the previous 2016-2020 European Commission contract. The objective is to develop the capacities of the 27 national government's tax, social security and labour authorities to tackle undeclared work through improving knowledge, encouraging mutual learning and the exchange of good practice. In 2021, the Platform was one of four pre-existing European Commission agencies incorporated into the new European Labour Authority (ELA), which is the new home of the Platform.

The project consortium comprises of the University of Sheffield, ICF in Belgium, Centre for Study of Democracy (CSD) in Bulgaria, Central European Labour Studies Institute (CELSI) in Slovakia and Eftheia in Belgium.
