Transversal task force on the EU policy dimension



The objective of this WP is to look at the whole project with the lens of a policy maker considering the expected impact of the major transitions analysed in the NEUJOBS project. Key challenges for the next decade include the adaptation of welfare states and employment systems as well as resourcing in a situation of heavily stressed public finances. What is the potential role of the Community policy level in such a scenario? This will be brought about in the task force through a series of ad hoc seminars and events and summarised in annual policy reports.
