Insights on the European Commission’s Communication to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions on ‘Attracting Skills and Talent to the EU’.

When: Wednesday, 15 June 2022 from 1 to 2 PM CET

Where: Online, Zoom

­Modern societies are facing a shrinking in their working population, already visible in skill shortages in major occupations of specific sectors. In Europe, relying on intra-EU mobility is no longer sufficient to address current and future labour market needs. Hence, there is a need to attract a working force from non-European countries.

On 27 April 2022, the European Commission published a Communication to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions on ‘Attracting Skills and Talent to the EU’. The Communication discusses potential operational and legislative initiatives to attract skills and talent to the EU.

In this meeting, experts will share insights on these proposed initiatives and discuss policy options based on research evidence. The audience is expected to actively participate in the discussions and provide feedback on concrete elements of the Communication.
