ABSTRACT
The article explores the aims and activities of The European Association of National Productivity Centres (EANPC). It is an association of national bi- and tri-partite bodies which contribute, each in its own country, to the enhancement of productivity, innovation, the quality of working life (QWL) and employment within companies and the economy overall. It collects and collates research results on the factors influencing productivity and their impact, stimulates the transfer of know-how from research to economic policy and enterprises and acts as a partner for various national bodies and organizations. It supports economic and social development on the national and international levels in the interest of fair competition.
