High-Level Roundtable: New Skills and New Jobs


The High-Level Policy Roundtable on Human Capital in European Regions and Cities, co-hosted by the Lisbon Council and the EU2020 Regions Network, convened under timely theme of Human Capital in Regions and Cities: Drivers of Sustainable Growth and Jobs. László Andor, European commissioner for employment, social affairs and inclusion, delivered a forceful keynote address and underlined that skills and human capital are a key driver of sustainable growth and jobs. Dirk Ahner, director-general at DG Regional Policy and Xavier Prats-Monné, deputy-director general at DG Education and Culture, were special guests at an interactive policy roundtable that gathered senior human capital and skills experts from cities and regions. The discussions and debate were animated and informed by the ground-breaking study Human Capital Leading Indicators: How Europe's Regions and Cities Can Drive Growth and Foster Social Inclusion, which was launched in the margins of the event.
