Along with the Netherlands Presidency of the Council the European Union, Eyes on Europe organizes its last conference of the year.
The theory of disruptive innovation has proved to be a powerful way of thinking about innovation-driven growth. Many leaders of small, entrepreneurial companies praise it as their guiding star; so do many executives at large, well-established organizations. In this conference, the advantages and the limits of this new system will be outlined. More precisely, speakers will be welcomed to discuss about the benefits and the challenges of the disruptive innovation for workers: is the so-called « Uberisation » becoming a victim of its own success?
The event will be followed by a cocktail.

To cope with an emphatic demand from civil society for reforms, the Commission drafted proposals to be discussed this year by EU institutions. After nearly one year of debate on the feasibility of a GMOs ban at a national level, the reform seems to leave a sour taste in the mouth of most of the stakeholders.Continuer la lecture
