EUROGIP Discussions 2017: A date for your diaries!

The next Eurogip Discussions (“Les Débats d’EUROGIP”) will be held on 2 March 2017 in Paris. They will address the subject of the economic impact – in the broadest sense – of occupational risk prevention in Europe.

The aim of this conference, that Eurogip has organized each year since 2003, is to cast a European spotlight on a topical issue. Speakers from various countries and Community bodies will discuss the question of the return on investment in risk prevention, but also more generally the economic impact that risk prevention may have at the corporate level, for the occupational injury and disease insurance organization, on the labour market, on society, etc.

A preliminary programme will be posted online from 15 December 2016.
