Living and working in Europe 2015-2018

Living and working in Europe 2015–2018 brings together some of Eurofound’s main research findings on the living and working conditions of Europeans over the last four years, during the term of the outgoing European Parliament and Commission. This work has answered key questions about aspects of life and work that matter keenly to people and policymakers alike, highlighting where policymaking needs to be targeted if it is to deliver for citizens.


  • 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.


A Eurofound realiza três inquéritos pan-europeus para contribuir para a conceção e o estabelecimento de melhores condições de vida e de trabalho. Os inquéritos proporcionam uma fonte única de informação comparável sobre a qualidade de vida e de trabalho no território da UE.
