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 labour market. ROA collaborates nationally and internationally with several academic researchers and research institutes. To further bolster research efforts and to improve the quality of research, ROA has developed a research fellow network with external economists and researchers in affiliated disciplines. A ROA fellowship lasts for the period of three years.
