Living, working and COVID-19

The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is having a profound impact, with far-reaching implications for the way people live and work across Europe and the globe.

Eurofound has begun to monitor the critical changes the crisis has brought to the labour market, working conditions and quality of life across the EU in the short term and aims to map how different Member States have responded to the challenges that have emerged.


  • The living and working conditions of Europeans are changing. By monitoring the latest developments and providing timely, in-depth analysis and information in these areas to EU-level institutions, national governments and social partners, Eurofound aims to support the EU agenda by providing knowledge to improve the quality of life and work in Europe.

    This short video presents what we do, and why we do it.


Eurofound realiza tres encuestas a escala europea con el fin de contribuir a la planificación y el establecimiento de unas mejores condiciones de vida y trabajo. Las encuestas constituyen una fuente única de información comparativa sobre la calidad de las condiciones de vida y trabajo en la UE.


Eurofound cuenta con dos observatorios, que se nutren en gran medida del trabajo de los corresponsales europeos de la red de Eurofound, así como de otras actividades de investigación
