Social Europe & Jobs

Eurociett has signed a partnership agreement with EurActiv, the European on-line media portal, for its Social Europe section. This partnership will allow this section to be maintained, revamped and updated on a regular basis. Topics covered in this section include all major employment and social affairs issues such as flexicurity, labour market reforms, social dialogue, work migration, and EU employment strategy.

Denis Pennel, Eurociett Managing Director, says that “Eurociett is very happy to be able to support EurActiv in pursuing their essential activity of information and dissemination. They are the leading source of news on European affairs for EU actors, such as ourselves, and are read by 590,000 people every month, including 20,000 journalists. We are also very happy to allow the Social Europe section to continue to exist, as we are particularly committed to this aspect of European affairs. With the current economic crisis, and the ensuing challenges the European labour market will face in the coming months, this subject will be of the utmost importance to all stakeholders.”

“We are delighted to welcome Eurociett as a partner,“ Daniela Vincenti-Mitchener, Managing Editor at, explained. “Thanks to their support, EurActiv is able to dedicate resources to provide comprehensive coverage of EU social affairs policy developments to readers completely free of charge."

Ross Melzer, Public Affairs Director, added: “Social Europe and flexecurity will remain an important debate after the replacement of the Lisbon Agenda, so we expect other organizations to follow the lead of Eurociett.”
