Work in this area has also been funded by the European Foundation for Living and Working Conditions and by various UK government departments. The research includes conceptual and theoretical measurement and modelling of working time. While much of the work is on the economics of working time, it has also included research on the social and physiological impact of shiftworking and hours of work patterns.
