    Collaboration with external experts is an integral aspect of Eurofound’s programme implementation. In light of this, Eurofound is in the process of drawing up a list of academic experts to cover the research areas of its 2017–2020 programme. Experts may be asked to advise on planned research approaches and methodologies or to carry out peer reviews.  In addition, the Agency wishes to nominate academic experts to its Advisory Committees alongside members of Eurofound’s Governing Board to provide independent scientific advice. Two experts will be nominated to each committee: Working conditions and sustainable work; Industrial relations; Labour market change; and Quality of life and public services. Advisory Committee meetings take place twice a year for one or two days, alternating between Dublin and Brussels. The deadline for the call for academic experts for Advisory Committees is 21 April 2017.

    8 March is International Women’s Day. The day marks the wide-scale progress made towards achieving gender equality and combating gender-based injustice, but also serves as an important impetus to ensure the spotlight remains on continued work towards realising these goals across the globe. Eurofound has an important role to play in assisting in the development of better social, employment and work-related policies for all EU citizens and those that call Europe home. Evidence-based research is a fundamental stepping-stone on this path to gender equity.   In preparation for International Women’s Day we invite you to explore the issue of gender equality in depth, to read about the different areas in which gender equality is most urgently needed – because at Eurofound providing the knowledge needed to develop policies that ensure gender equality in life and work continues to be a top priority.
