speech-bubblesThe European Commission has recently launched a public consultation for the evaluation of four EU agencies under the remit of DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.

The four agencies are:

  • the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working conditions (Eurofound);
  • the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop);
  • the European Training Foundation (ETF);
  • the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA).

The aim of this consultation process is to collect information and opinions from the general public and stakeholders on the work of the Agencies. The public consultation aims at gathering new ideas for the future of the agencies, including governance issues and comparing alternative policy options. The consultation also seeks to assess the usefulness of the agencies with regards to relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence, and added value.

All citizens, public and private organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation! Contributions are sought in particular from stakeholders of Eurofound, Cedefop and EU-OSHA during the period 2011-2016.

The consultation will be made available through a survey which is available online until 5 July 2017.

Following the consultation, the results will be published on the European Commission website as part of the ongoing evaluation of the EU Agencies.
