  • Helsinki, Finland

    The EESC Employers' Group is organising a seminar on "Strengthening European Growth and Competitiveness: Proactive Trade Agenda – NOW!" taking place on 26 October in Helsinki and jointly organized with the Confederation of Finnish Industries and the International Chamber of Commerce, ICC Finland.

    Trade and Investment are hugely important for the EU: 1 in 7 EU jobs depend on exports. The EU cannot risk falling behind in the global race to build a wide and ambitious network of free trade agreements. The signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement (involving 12 countries and 40% of world GDP) is a timely reminder of this. This seminar, which will be attended by many of our Members together with Finnish employers and entrepreneurs, politicians and academics aims to examine how to best contribute positively to the debate as trade agreements (TTIP - TISA - CETA - EU-JAPAN) increasingly become a top political issue.


  • Kosice, Slovakia

    The hallmark of a sustainable circular economy is a society that reduces its burden on nature by ensuring that resources remain in use for as long as possible. Once the maximum value has been extracted, resources can then be recovered and reused, remanufactured, or recycled to create new products.

    In the context of the Slovak Presidency to the EU, the Employers' Group of the European Economic and Social Committee is organising a conference entitled "Sustainable Industry in the context of the Circular Economy". The event will take place on 13th September 2016 in Kosice, Slovakia. The participants of the discussion will elaborate on how the circular economy can support sustainable growth and the role of business in the transition to a more circular economy.

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    The employers' Group believes that a paradigm shift in the form of the digital transformation is sweeping across Europe and that it will affect industry, business and citizens alike. The EESC Employers' Group, in close cooperation with the Cambridge Network, has agreed to hold a seminar in Cambridge to exchange views on Innovation and Industry, and on the merits of business, industry and academia working together in Europe to prepare for the new post-industrial society. Cambridge was chosen as the venue for this event because of the overwhelming presence of high standard research and education; Cambridge is thus a real European – even global centre of excellence.

    We see the format of the meeting as a questions-with-extended-answers, interactive discussion between a select number of panelists and the audience, made up of Employers' Group Members and Members of the Cambridge Network.

  • Vilnius, Lithuania

    On 15 June, the Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists together with the EESC Employers’ Group and partners, is organising the 3rd high-level conference on the future of the integrated industrial policy in Europe and Lithuania, as well as on promotion of national industrial policy, focusing on the challenges of innovation.

    Against the backdrop of fierce global competition, the European industrial renaissance can bring growth and jobs through investments, R&D and innovation. Innovation, in particular, could become an incentive, allowing companies to draw on Europe’s strengths and drive our economies towards growth. The right regulatory environment that incorporates competitiveness in all policy areas at all levels of government, as well as a completed Single Market, better access to finance, access to competitively priced energy and raw materials, and a dynamic and responsive labour market would give business the much needed long-term confidence to invest in innovation in Europe.


  • Oeiras / Lisbon, Portugal

    Effective transmission and sharing of knowledge, information and skills is crucial to delivering the jobs and growth opportunities that Europe is seeking. By connecting European business and research, businesses will be given fresh opportunities to commercialise the most up-to-date and relevant research findings, with the aim of giving Europe first-mover advantage in the latest technological and non-technological fields. Adding higher education into this mix, businesses will be able to take advantage of a workforce with skills tailored to their needs. Moreover, students will benefit from an education that will make them more attractive to future employers.
