The European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) is the independent research and training centre of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC). Its mission is to build bridges between the world of research and the world of labour, in order to support, strengthen and stimulate the European trade union movement.

The ETUI places its expertise – acquired in particular in the context of its links with universities and specific academic and expert networks – in the service of workers’ interests at European level and of the strengthening of the social dimension of the European Union.[1]
In its present form, the ETUI is the result of the merger, in 2005, of the following three specialist bodies: the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI, founded in 1978), the European Trade Union College (ETUCO, founded in 1989) and the Trade Union Technical Bureau (TUTB – for occupational health and safety issues – also founded in 1989).[2]
The Institute is currently composed of two departments:
In order to perform its mission, the ETUI employs a multinational team of some 60 staff members coming from all parts of Europe and receives financial support from the European Union.[3]

Research
The ETUI is recognised as a centre of excellence in several areas of research such as European industrial relations (including European Works Council, worker participation, European social dialogue, etc.) and working conditions (health and safety, exposure to dangerous substances – REACH, etc.).[4]
The research department consists of three subject units:
Every year the ETUI, publishes Benchmarking Working Europe, the ETUI’s annual stock-take of macro-economic, social and bargaining conditions in Europe.[5]

Education
Previously European Trade Union College, the Education Department of the ETUI provides training and learning activities for trade union officials and leaders, shop stewards, young officers, and unionists.
The department delivers about 100 courses a year to more than 2000 participants. Trade unionists members of the ETUC, or European Works' Councils, SE works council and special negotiation bodies (such as company level employee representatives) can participate to the training. Some of the courses lead to a qualification, in collaboration with TUC in the UK and University of Lille in France.
Governance
The Institute is composed of a General Assembly, which meets at least once a year and it is composed of members of the ETUC. It elects the members of the Management Committee. The Management Committee is composed of 28 members of the ETUC, elected by the General Assembly and it deals with the administration of the Institute.
The Director's Committee is composed of:
An Advisory Group, composed of 25 members contributes to the multi-annual strategy of the ETUI.[9]
