NEW OPEN PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON THE EVALUATION OF YOUTH EMPLOYMENT

The European Commission wishes to know citizens’ and stakeholders’ opinion on the activities carried out by the EU since 2014 in order to promote and improve the employment of young people.

Fondazione G Brodolini, in partnership with Metis GmbH and Applica will support the European Commission in analysing this information. The information collected will be used in assessing what has been achieved during the 2014-2018 period. It will also help the Commission to draw lessons on how to reinforce this support in the future, making it more effective and focused. Amongst other subjects, the evaluation will assess whether the youth most in need of assistance were adequately reached (also geographically), the quality of job and training offers, and which type of support has been the most effective.

We ask you to contribute to this consultation by filling in the online questionnaire at https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/initiatives/ares-2018-3876690/public-consultation_en.
