Thematic Review Seminars

More needs to be done by the EU and national authorities to support the exchange of information between all stakeholders concerned. The Thematic Review Seminars have an agenda-setting role for the mutual learning process and aim to steer the policy debate under an overall thematic focus.

The seminars are organised twice a year and dedicated to a particular thematic priority. Together with key experts on the chosen priority theme the seminar includes a large group of policy-makers and stakeholders from across Europe. Each Thematic Review Seminar focuses on the main policy challenges and approaches, from national and EU-wide perspectives, within the selected priority area. Official delegates from different Member States present national achievements in the field as a basis for the subsequent discussions involving other Member State officials and representatives of the social partners, international organisations and other stakeholders.
