European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working ConditionsEurofound, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions, is a European Union Agency whose role it is to provide key actors in social and work-related policy making with findings, knowledge and advice drawn from comparative research.
