Event Description

CEEP is holding the fourth edition of the Public Services Summit on 12 December 2019, at the European Economic and Social Committee. You can still register to join the conversation! The event will exchange on the key contribution of public services and services of general interest in Europe, providing the best occasion to reflect on the new EU institutional term. With a new European Parliament and a new European Commission, innovative priorities are put forward, such as the EU Green Deal or the Industrial Strategy. It is therefore an important moment to address the future of Europe and of public services and services of general interest. Should you wish to have more detailed information about the event, you will find the draft agenda.
