COPIE @ Centre for Parliamentary Studies Symposium

Under the title of 'Supporting Inclusive Entrepreneurship in Europe: Creating Sustainable Employment and Promoting Equal Opportunities', the Centre for Parliamentary Studies in Brussels runs a one-day event on inclusive entrepreneurship in Brussels on September 18, 2012.

According to the programme, the international symposium seeks to analyse current entrepreneurship practices across Europe. It aims to monitor and measure the impact of partnership working, exchange good practice at local, national and international levels and ensure that current measures are both inclusive and transposable on a supranational level.

The symposium seeks to integrate European knowledge in order to help shape sustainable EU-wide inclusive entrepreneurship strategies. The Symposium will support the exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking topical debate with local and regional practitioners and policymakers at EU level. Delegates will:

  • Contribute to the shaping of a comprehensive and inclusive EU-wide entrepreneurship strategy
  • Assess entrepreneurship practices and stimulate partnership working at all levels
  • Share comparative multi-level good practices in employment-inclusion policies
  • Discuss and promote early intervention mechanisms to strengthen inclusive entrepreneurship.

COPIE's experience will be shared by Guzman Garcia Gonzales-Posada from our Spanish national partner, the Ministry of Labour and Social Security. More information on the event can be found at the following link.
