Moving from a low-wage to an innovation economy / Eurofound News, February 2016
As Europe emerges from the crisis, what strategies are in place to support a move to competitiveness based on innovation? At Eurofound’s fourth National Cluster Seminar in Warsaw on 3 March, ‘Quality jobs: from low wage to an innovation economy’, participants will seek to answer this question. Organised in collaboration with the Polish employers’ organisation Lewiatan and hosted by the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy, the event will bring together public authorities, social partner representatives, and NGOs from the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia to discuss a number of issues: the challenges these countries face in striving to grow competitiveness; the transformation from low-wage jobs to innovation economies; and what shape innovation may take in the future. An integral part of Eurofound’s national-level communications plan, the Cluster Seminars facilitate debate and networking between the Agency and key stakeholders on topics of relevance to all parties.
