Youth of Europe in spotlight in discussions between Eurofound and H.E. Leonard Sacco, Ambassador of Malta to Ireland
Eurofound’s Executive Director Ivailo Kalfin met with H.E. Leonard Sacco, Ambassador of the Republic of Malta to Ireland in Eurofound on 11 November to discuss the role of the Agency in providing timely and relevant research on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth, on the cusp of the European Year of Youth 2022, as well as the latest findings and developments in telework, hybrid workplaces and work–life balance.
Ambassador Sacco and Mr Kalfin reflected on the close dialogue and cooperation between the Agency and the EU Heads of Mission as well as the Maltese government, and how the COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the importance of Eurofound’s work on both a national and European level. They also discussed how, as a tripartite Agency, Eurofound promotes cooperation dialogue between social partners, national governments and the European institutions, with the next Foundation Forum in March 2022 providing a further opportunity to deepen this dialogue.
H.E. Sacco highly appreciated the research findings of Eurofound.
