About TURI

The Trade Union related Research Institutes (TURI) network aims at establishing a structural, non-thematic and long-term platform for formal contacts between the institutes supporting the trade union movement across Europe, thereby building the foundations for more and better collaboration and knowledge-sharing between them and integrating in a more natural way the European dimension in their research work. TURI should facilitate the emergence of common projects; it is a tool for mapping expertise and aims at helping trade union related institutes to engage in comparative research. TURI is a joint initiative of the ETUI and the Hans Böckler Foundation. The ETUI is financially supported by the European Union.
