Abstract

The aim of the present paper is to present the public scientific events organized under the project named "Building a knowledge Repository for Occupational Well-being Economics Research", also known as the “ROWER” Project and financed under the EU 7th Framework Programme for scientific research. The project 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. A significant part of the efforts for the achieving of this goal are the envisaged and already carried out public scientific events: two international scientific conferences and two specialized working group meetings. The two specialized Working Group (WinG) meetings were held in Netherlands (Amsterdam, September 17-18, 2009) and Bulgaria (Sandanski, April 15-16, 2010), while the two ROWER conferences took place in Turkey (Izmir, April 23-25, 2009) and Romania (Sinaia, April 28-30, 2011). All these four scientific events succeeded to attract more than 100 leading OSH scientists from across Europe and North America, as well as representatives of the occupational health and safety authorities on both European and national level.Thus, these events succeeded to overcome their pure scientific nature and achieved and active stakeholders’ involvement and participation.
