The Foundation’s eighth four-year programme looks ahead to the opportunities and challenges facing the new EU, building on existing strengths, areas of expertise and proven services. It highlights future challenges for social policy in Europe and pinpoints the knowledge gaps to be addressed by the Foundation and its research activities in the period following EU enlargement in May 2004. It is designed to support the work of the main social actors charged with the responsibility for planning and establishing better living and working conditions in Europe.
Every four years Eurofound reviews its strategy and the orientation to be given to its work and after widespread consultation prepares a four-year rolling programme. Within the context of the four-year programme, a detailed annual programme of work is prepared and proposed for adoption by the Management Board.
The programmes are the outcome of detailed deliberations of the groups making up the Management Board as well as with the Institutions of the Union.
