Stellungnahme des Ausschusses: Fostering an entrepreneurship and innovation friendly single market – promoting new business models to meet societal challenges and transitions (own-initiative opinion)

Key points

For the EESC:

  • the business world can play an active and important role here, along with the public institutions;
  • it is important that legislative proposals concerning businesses, the economy and the internal market are not uniform, thereby rejecting the one-size-fits-all approach and making the most of the "biodiversity of companies";
  • the European institutions must support the development of artificial intelligence and the proper use of big data;
  • it is important that changes to productive processes and to the economy in general take place in the context of constructive social dialogue and with due respect for workers' rights and quality of life;
  • the need to ensure social cohesion and fairness for an ageing and dwindling European population points to the future role that can be played by social and mutual enterprises.
