Eurofound is partnering up with EU Think-Tank Friends of Europe for the 2020 State of Europe event which moves online for a full week of activities as The festival of politics and ideas to transform Europe.
- Friendsofeurope.org: State of Europe 2020: the festival of politics and ideas to transform Europe
From Monday 12 October until Thursday 15 October 2020, the event will be an opportunity to discuss a sustainable transition, implementing a bold EU industrial strategy, and rethinking the health system as well as a new approach to growth, the digitalisation of the whole economy; and the impact of the EU’s demographics across these areas.
- On 12 October, Eurofound’s Director Juan Menéndez-Valdés will take part actively in the Festival opening session at 9:30-11:00 on A question of leadership, governance and trust and at 17:30-18:30 CEST in the high-level session on How do we pay social protection?
- On 14 October, Eurofound’s Head of Social Policies, Massimiliano Mascherini, will take part at 09.45-11.00 CEST in the high-level session: Rethinking world health systems.
Sessions will vary from closed circles of a handful of top decisionmakers to a few hundred senior discussants, most of the week will be livestreamed so as to allow a wider audience to engage.
