The Commission has launched an initiative to share information on innovative measures being taken in EU countries to anticipate and manage restructuring at national, regional and local levels, across specific economic sectors.
For each of the 27 EU countries, a background paper will be produced and discussed at a national seminar. A report will synthesize lessons learned.
The results of this project were presented at a European Conference held in Brussels on 18/19 October 2010.
This project has been funded by the European Parliament's pilot project "Accompanying workers during industrial change".
The International Training Centre of the International Labour Office (ITC-ILO, Turin) managed this initiative following a contract with the Commission.
