Comité économique et social européen – Salle JDE 62
Rue Belliard, 99


This conference, opened by the EESC President, Georgios Dassis, brought together more than 200 representatives of businesses, trade unions, regions, civil society and academia from a number of European countries, in a dialogue with representatives of European and national institutions with the aim of exploring and discussing the following questions:
– What impact (in quantitative and qualitative terms) are energy and digital mutations having on employment?
– Are industrial relations systems (dialogue between economic and social actors) adapting to meet the challenges of these mutations?
– What conditions must the overhaul of these systems meet if competitiveness and social cohesion are to be safeguarded?

Discussions focused on both the Europe-wide picture and a comparison between six countries: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland and Sweden.


The synthesis of this conference will be published soon.


With the support of the DG Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion of the European Commission
