Eurofound sets its sights on Europe's recovery and resilience

Europe is at a time of unprecedented change: COVID-19 has fundamentally affected people's lives throughout the continent and beyond, and the realities United Kingdom's exit from the EU are finally taking shape. At this time of flux, Eurofound has focused on Europe's immediate social, economic and labour market priorities and its developing role over the coming four years with the publication of its Programming document 2021-2024.

The programming document describes Eurofound’s planned work over the period and sets out the policy and institutional context that the Agency will operate in. Eurofound’s priorities for 2021–2024 are shaped by the key challenges for social cohesion and just transitions in a changing environment in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis. The Agency focuses on issues where it can draw on its core expertise in the areas of working conditions, industrial relations, employment and living conditions, to support the European institutions and national policymakers, as well as social partners and other stakeholders, in their efforts to lead Europe's recovery from the far-reaching implications of the Coronavirus.

Eurofound remains resolute in its efforts to inform effective policies that can improve quality of life and work for all – a role and ambition it has held for over four decades and which is arguably more important today than ever. The Agency anticipates that the priorities and outputs outlined in this document will serve as a positive and timely contribution to those shaping the policy agenda in the coming years.
