A recognised social partner, we speak for all-sized enterprises in 34 European countries whose national business federations are our direct members.
The organisation is headquartered in Brussels at the heart of the EU institutions. We work on behalf of our member federations to ensure that the voice of business is heard in European policy-making. We interact regularly with the European Parliament, Commission and Council as well as other stakeholders in the policy community. We also represent European business in the international arena, ensuring that Europe remains globally competitive.
Employability of graduates
Raising the employability of graduates is a key issue for improving the functioning of European labour markets.
Increasing cooperation between the world of work and higher education, and acknowledging the shared responsibility of all actors, are necessary steps to ensure that individuals can continually refresh their knowledge and skills in a lifelong learning perspective, to improve both their personal and professional competences.
