Eurofound in cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate‑General for Economic and Financial Affairs (DG ECFIN) is organising a joint seminar on economic and social convergence.

Sustainable economic and social convergence are central to Europe’s lasting stability and require an integrated European approach. Against this background, DG ECFIN and Eurofound have joined forces to present the latest trends in economic and social convergence in the European Union.

On this occasion, Eurofound will launch its new report on monitoring convergence in the European Union.

Watch the #EurofoundLIVE seminar from 9am to 1pm CET

Two key panel sessions will highlight the links between economic and social convergence and explore ways to strengthen these links, with a particular emphasis on the design of economic reforms and the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights.

The half-day seminar will bring together up to 50 representatives from the European institutions, social partners, national governments, civil society and academic experts. It will provide an opportunity for debate and discussion.

Among the speakers from Eurofound and DG ECFIN, one of the discussants will include Prof. Frank Vandenbroucke, University of Amsterdam and University of Antwerp.

A light lunch will be served from 13.00 to 14.00.

Europese Stichting tot Verbetering van de Levens- en Arbeidsomstandigheden (Eurofound)

Dit agentschap i draagt bij aan het Europees sociaal beleid door onderzoek te doen naar de werk- en levensomstandigheden binnen de EU. Eurofound voorziet regeringen, werkgevers, vakbonden en de Europese Commissie i van bevindingen, kennis en advies afkomstig van onafhankelijk en vergelijkend onderzoek.

Door middel van een verordening (COM(2016)531) uit 2016 werd de oude Eurofound-richtlijn uit 1975 herzien. Het doel van de herziening is om de structuur van de organisatie te moderniseren en de regels te updaten. Zo moet de rol van Eurofound worden geconcretiseerd. De verordening trad op 20 februari 2019 in werking.
