This morning it’s time for another Work Club session at Central Library and the topic is searching for job vacancies, so we decided to use this opportunity to re-share a video with you that we made a while ago. It is a short introduction to Eures, the European Job Portal: watch the video.
Tomorrow “the European Commission will launch a communication campaign to encourage girls to study science-related subjects and to engage young women in research careers. Women remain largely under-represented in the science, technology and research fields in Europe, which constitutes a huge waste of talent. The campaign will challenge stereotypes on science and show young people, especially girls and young women, that science can be a great opportunity for their future. The campaign will also underline the importance of science and research in finding concrete solutions to our world’s problems (food and energy security, environment, healthy ageing etc.).” Read more about the campaign on their website.
The European Commission has launched a consultation asking citizens what kinds of online service providers should be considered as “hosts” of content. In 2010 the European Commission held a public consultation on the future of e-commerce and the implementation of the E-commerce Directive.
This new consultation aims to clarify certain articles in the Directive. You can read more about this consultation and the E-commerce Directive below:
