Join us for the kick-off conference of our event series on ‘Jobs Jobs Jobs for a stronger recovery.’ Providing new jobs for European citizens who were laid off during the crisis and helping European companies to recover from the economic turmoil is our top priority for Europe's post-Corona recovery. We will discuss how to avoid a lost generation of young Europeans and how to build a better future for them with affected citizens, business representatives, economic experts and top-level political leaders.

Confirmed speakers include: Commission President Ursula von der Leyen; Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis; Merck's future CEO Belén Garijo; Piaggio's CEO Roberto Colaninno; AudEERING's CEO Dagmar Schuller and CNN news anchor Richard Quest.
