Pillars Interim Conference




After one-and-a-half years of work, Pillars will share, discuss and enrich its interim results at a conference to be held on 11 and 12 July 2022 in Brussels. To accomplish this, the first day will follow a two-pronged approach: on the one hand, the findings on different aspects of the Pillars brief will be presented and discussed, covering such aspects as using internet data to predict labour market evolution, among other topics. On the other, especially invited top-notch external researchers will share their own findings to complement, or to set them against, the Pillars findings. The ensuing exchange promises to be fruitful, lively and highly engaging.

On the second day, a number of policy panels will address the implications of competition with China and Latin America for the European labour markets, the impact of automation, and successful policy examples.
