Network of European Correspondents

PDF version Printer-friendly version

As part of its knowledge base, Eurofound has at its disposal a network of national (and European-level) correspondents, based in all Member States plus Norway. The network provides expert national inputs of key importance for the European debate that allow for comparisons of developments and contextualising information, contributing their high-level expertise to the European Observatory of Working Life (EurWork) and the European Monitoring Centre on Change. Correspondents report on topics related to developments in the labour market, to employment policies and to company restructuring, as well as providing occasional contributions on related social policy topics, thus providing an up-to-date picture of the country situation and informing Eurofound’s pan-European comparative analysis.

Given the tripartite structure of governance in Eurofound, National correspondents also assist Eurofound in reaching out to relevant stakeholders (primarily social partners, government departments and other key decision-makers/opinion-formers) in their respective Member State in a variety of ways. Correspondents are also in regular contact with members of Eurofound’s Governing Board from the country concerned.

Participating in a European-wide network provides correspondents with a unique opportunity to share their expertise, to contribute to debates and to engage with topics relevant to the EU employment and social policy agenda.
