From crisis to recovery: Better informed policies for a competitive and fair Europe - Four-year work programme 2013-2016
As Eurofound embarks on a new four-year work programme, Europe faces some of its greatest challenges yet. Prospects for economic and social development in Europe and in other parts of the world are increasingly unclear. Drafted against this social and economic background and with these key imperatives to the fore, the priorities of this programme reflect clearly both the immediate challenge of coping with the crisis and the mid-term ambition to achieve progress towards a competitive and fair Europe – and this, of course, with the overall ambition of seeing Europe get ‘back on track’. Building on over 30 years of research and expertise serving Europe’s decision-makers – EU institutions, national governments and social partners – this programme presents the strategic framework for the work of the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions for the period 2013 to 2016.
