IPEPS Final Conference: What education and jobs for the next generation of students?

For three years running, CEPS has organised the Integrated Programme in European Policy Studies (IPEPS), as a complement to master’s degree programmes in universities across Europe. Thanks to financial support from the Erasmus+ programme, IPEPS  has increased the understanding among European students of real-life policy issues facing EU leaders, built valuable networks of students from many different backgrounds and improved their understanding of the internal and external workings of the EU. Based on a partnership with nine universities across the EU, IPEPS has also taken up the challenge of using innovative learning methods to foster teamwork, dialogue and constructive exchange of ideas. 

How to educate future generations and equip them with the knowledge and skills required to perform the jobs of tomorrow? What are the implications of the digitalisation of the labour market for industrial business models? What can the EU do to help the new generation of students to become better integrated into the labour market?  Please join us at the IPEPS Final Conference on July 4th to explore these and other important questions.   

The full agenda of the conference is available here.
