    Bringing the EU closer to citizens is a major challenge.

  • Conference - EESC, room JDE62 - Rue Belliard 99, 1040 Brussels, Belgium

    On 23 March 2017, the European Economic and Social Committee together with the Committee of Regions and the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the EU will jointly hold a high-level conference on "Improving Regional Air Connectivity for Europe – a Pre-condition for Sustainable Economic Growth". While in major hub airports connectivity is usually dependant mainly on increasing capacity, further development of regional connectivity in the EU depends on a number of factors such as airport infrastructure, airline business models, regulatory and economic frameworks and geography. Conference participants will attempt to address these factors and provide concrete solutions to what should be done to improve regional air connectivity in a sustainable manner. This event is part of a series of follow up activities that the EESC has been undertaking in support of the implementation of the Aviation Strategy.

    2017 is a very important year for Europe, as it marks the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome establishing the European Economic Community, the forerunner of the European Union.

    Young people represent Europe’s future, and they will decide the direction of the EU in the years to come. The EESC, as the "voice" of civil society, is eager to ensure that the views, experiences and ideas of Europe’s younger generation are heard.

  • Conference - 1000 Brussels, Belgium

    The European Commission (DG Research) invited the EESC to co-organize an event to present and discuss the results of the stakeholder consultation on Horizon 2020. It will also be an occasion to compare these results with those of the EESC's Information report on the same topic (INT/807, rapporteur: Lobo Xavier).

    This event, which would take place in April, would be part of a series of events jointly organized by the EESC and DG RTD on the area of Research and Innovation and it would be an excellent opportunity to promote the EESC work in this area.
