EU priorities: Working for a strong Europe

The new von der Leyen Commission took office on 1 December 2019. Having adopted its first work programme on 29 January 2020, the Commission sets out its plans for a transition to a fair, climate-neutral and digital Europe. It outlines six top priorities. The work programme ‘also reflects the main priorities for the European Parliament and those in the European Council’s Strategic Agenda for 2019–2024’.

Eurofound’s work directly feeds into a number of these key areas aimed at creating a strong social Europe. Explore where Eurofound’s research can provide you with the most current findings relevant to the EU policy priorities.
