Future Built on Knowledge

Andrea Garnero

I am a labour economist at the Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs of the OECD, currently on secondment to the Joint Research Center of the European Commission in Ispra (Italy). I am also a research fellow at Université libre de Bruxelles (Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management) and at IZA, Bonn.

I work in particular on minimum wages and collective bargaining in OECD countries. In 2021, I chaired the expert group on in-work poverty at the Italian Ministry of Labour. Between 2017 and 2021, I was part of the French minimum wage expert group (“Groupe d’experts sur le SMIC“). I am also part of the scientific committee of the Labor Chair at Paris School of Economics. At the JRC I am currently working on a pilot project on loneliness in the European Union.

I got my PhD in labour economics at Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris School of Economics and Université libre de Bruxelles in January 2015. Previously I worked as assistant for economic affairs and G20 assistant Sherpa to the Italian Prime Minister and as an economist at the European Commission (DG Employment).
