A Basic European Unemployment Insurance
29 September 2014, Vienna
"A basic European unemployment insurance scheme would provide a limited and predictable short-term fiscal stimulus to economies undergoing a downturn in the economic cycle - something that every country is going to experience sooner or later. With its automatic and countercyclical character, a basic European unemployment insurance scheme could boost market confidence in the EMU and thus help to avoid repeating vicious circles of downgrades, austerity and internal devaluation in the eurozone. It would help to uphold domestic demand and therefore economic growth in Europe as a whole."

26 September 2014, Lyon, France
SCOT (Smart CO2 Transformation) is a project to develop the Strategic European Research Agenda aimed at improving the technical and economic performance of emerging CO2 transformation technologies.
It gathers five regions which are strongly committed and already well advanced in this emerging area of CO2 utilization (Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and UK) and it is the first ever European initiative in the field of CO2 utilization strategy. While we prepare our Joint Action Plan and the Strategic Research Agenda, we want to gather stakeholder views on what are the key policy bottlenecks and their potential solutions. Thus, you are invited to register for this event and engage in the discussion.
