  • 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.


L-Eurofound se tagħmel tliet stħarriġiet panEwropej biex tikkontribwixxi għall-ippjanar u l-istabbilizzar ta' kondizzjoniiet aħjar għall-ħajja u x-xogħol. L-istħarriġiet se joffru sors uniku ta' informazzjoni komparattiva dwar il-kwalità tal-kondizzjonijiet tal-għajxien u x-xogħol madwar l-UE.


Eurofound has two observatories, which draw extensively on the work of Eurofound's network of European correspondents, as well as other research activities.
