Better policies for a competitive and fair Europe
Europe faces some of its greatest challenges while prospects for economic and social development are increasingly unclear. Responding to the information needs of those tasked with the important role of developing and implementing policies to improve quality of work and life in Europe, in a relevant, timely and accessible manner, remains at the core of Eurofound's mission.
During the Cyprus Presidency of the second half of 2012, Eurofound will present its most recent research data and findings, and provide insights into developments at EU, national and company level, relating to social cohesion and youth unemployment, sustainable employment and the gender pay gap as well as the ageing workforce.

The European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) is a tripartite EU agency that provides European social policymakers with knowledge to assist in the development of social and work-related policies, based on comparative data and research findings.
