The Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA) is a research institute of the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics, established in 1986. The overarching research theme of ROA is the acquisition and depreciation of human capital over the life course in relation to the dynamics of the labor market. ROA aims to do high level scientific research with a substantial policy impact. This dual mission is pursued in all research project, regardless of the type of funding (fundamental or commissioned research). ROA receives funding from scientific funds (e.g. NRO, NWO, NETSPAR, ORA, H2020), as well as from national and international authorities (Ministries, European Commission, OECD) and various other organizations such as training funds, educational institutes and regional governments.
