O-De

The Observatory for Economic Dynamics (O-De) is a research tool for the analysis and disclosure of structure and trends of Canton Ticino's economy, with particular attention to the labor market.

O-De was born in January 2017, it performs the activities previously carried out by the Observatory of economic Policies O-Pol (opol.usi.ch) and the Labor market Observatory O-Lav (olav.usi.ch).

The activities in which O-De is involved fill a gap about the constant monitoring of the cantonal economic condition. In particular, the Observatory meets the need for a scientific assessment of the cantonal economic complexity compared with other organizations, analyzes labor market, federal and cantonal policies, economic dynamics of companies.

News and upcoming events

Every year, confronti offers two opportunities to meet, think and debate on Canton Ticino’s economic dynamics (their trend and their structure) in a comparative framework that includes interregional, national and cross-border realities.

For this occasion, economic and institutional actors gather together from the three perspectives: cantonal, interregional, and cross-border. The event calls for these actors’ participation not only in the production but also in the processing and fruition of the results obtained.
