In cooperation with the Centre for European Policy Studies, the European Social Observatory and theSlovak Governance Institute.

This webcast will focus on European labour markets and the impact the current crisis will have on its mid and long term issues. It is the first of a comprehensive series which is an integral part of NEUJOBS. NEUJOBS is a European Commission FP7 funded consortium aimed at giving a comprehensive picture of the European labour markets in 2025. It sheds light on the big question if and how actual EU labor market developments will have an impact on major socio-ecological, societal, territorial and skills transitions.

  • What impact does the sluggish growth environment have on the mid-to long-term expectations with regard to unemployment as well as the composition of the labor force, from the perspective of skills, occupations and industries?
  • What are the differences between European countries, and between Europe and the United States.
  • When taking an even longer term perspective, how will the labour market shape up once we get onto a renewed path of growth, driven by changes in demography, education and innovation?

Bart van Ark - The Conference Board, Daniel Gros - The Centre for European Policy Studies and Iain Begg - London School of Economics will outline a number of scenarios, discuss the impact of growth scenarios for several sectors of the European economy and, analyse how Europe might gain an advantage over other economies by reshaping the labor market through a process of socio-ecological transition.
