The European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) is a tripartite European Union Agency, whose role is to provide knowledge to assist in the development of better social, employment and work-related policies. Eurofound was established in 1975 by Council Regulation (EEC) No. 1365/75 to contribute to the planning and design of better living and working conditions in Europe.

Eurofound's role is to provide information, advice and expertise – on working conditions and sustainable work, industrial relations, labour market change and quality and life and public services – for key actors in the field of EU social policy on the basis of comparative information, research and analysis.
