I am Sara de la Rica, Fundación ISEAK’s Director.
Since its establishment in 2018, I have directed the ISEAK Foundation. I am Professor of Economics at UPV-EHU. My specialty is the Labor Market, and in particular, labor inequalities caused by socioeconomic factors, sex, origin or age. I also investigate about poverty, as well as about the challenges of digitization.
I currently hold other positions as Member of the Board of Iberdrola, Associate Researcher at IZA (Institute of Labor Economics) and Member of the Reflection Forum of AMETIC (Multisectoral Association of Spanish Electronics and Communications Companies).
In 2018, the Basque College of Economists awarded me the “Basque Economist 2018, Ekonomistak Saria 2018” Award.
At ISEAK we work to increase equal opportunities for employment and reduce social inequality.
To do this, we generate academic knowledge about existing inequalities, always based on the evidence offered by the data, and we transfer it with Independence and Rigour to society in general and in particular to those with responsibilities in making social and economic policy decisions.
Our strength lies in the method of work. We are specialists in the treatment of complex data and in the evaluation of economic policy measures. We transfer this knowledge to move towards a less unequal, more modern and inclusive society.
Our main areas of work are as follows:
