[Excerpt] 2016 was the concluding year of Eurofound’s work programme for 2013–2016 From crisis to recovery: Better informed policies for a fair and competitive Europe. This work programme was designed to provide evidence to feed into the development of social, employment and work-related policies to aid the recovery of the European Union in the aftermath of a severe economic crisis that has had profound and wide-ranging repercussions on citizens, countries and the Union itself. The priorities of the programme reflected the challenge of achieving a fair and competitive Europe in the context of uncertainty on the road ahead and the measures necessary to regain growth and prosperity.
