Abstract: The project named "Building a knowledge Repository for Occupational Well-being Economics Research", also known as the “ROWER” Project under its acronym, is financed under the EU 7th Framework Programme for scientific research and aims to settle the fundamental basis that will enhance research on Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Economics, which will allow for the development of policies regarding this issue. This goal is to be achieved through a Coordination Action which has already brought and will continue to bring together the leading OHS Economists in Europe. Their knowledge is envisaged to be gathered through literature reviews, meetings and conferences and made available to the community through a dynamic on-line repository which will contain OHS Economics issues and will allow for discussion and communication of principles, case studies and handy management (accounting) tools. Two specialized Working Group (WinG) meetings focusing on OHS Macroeconomics and OHS Microeconomics, respectively and two conferences on OHS Economics have been scheduled to attract new contributions in order to assess the impact of changing conditions of economy and labour on OHS1. In the course of the implementation of the Project, the two specialized Working Group (WinG) meeting, the first one held in Amsterdam, Netherlands (September 17-18, 2009) and the second one, held in Sandanski (April 15-16, 2010), Bulgaria, as well as the first ROWER conference, held in Izmir, Turkey (April 23-25, 2009) succeeded to attract more than 80 leading OSH scientists from across Europe and North America. The online OSH economics repository, envisaged under the ROWER Project, has also been taking shape and can certainly be successfully accomplished by the end of the life of the Project with the help of all the active visitors and participants in the ROWER Project web site (http://www.rower_eu.eu ) and its forum part.
