Centre for Future Labour Market Studies (EU-ERA) is a state-of-the-art research centre in Malaysia that focuses on the labour market research and analytics. EU-ERA operates as a nucleus division within The Future Studies Berhad (THE FUTURE). At THE FUTURE, we are dedicated to conducting cutting edge research and analysis on the rapidly changing economic and labor market landscapes, with the goal of informing policymakers, businesses, and the public about the implications of these changes.
Post-pandemic periods have shown the need for Malaysia to carry out necessary reforms and structural transformation. Reforms and transformations are necessary to ensure the Malaysian economy continues to be sustainable and immune to future crises. Labour market transformation, educational reform and industrial upgrading are among the examples of the focused areas to be emphasized. Altogether, sound economic policies are critical for Malaysia's development as the country aspires to foster a sustainable and resilient economy in meeting future challenges.
Our vision is crafted based on the principle of “bridging the gaps in knowledge and policy”. Our goal is to enhance the economic, social, and environmental aspects of Malaysia by incorporating more knowledge-based policies in our decision-making processes. We aim to bring about transformational change by using evidence-based approaches in applied research, advisory services and educational programs to inform policy decisions.
