A conference entitled 'Good jobs for good services? The impact of privatisation of public services on employment, productivity and service quality' will be held on 24 April in Vienna, Austria.

The one-day conference will take a closer look at the outcomes of liberalisation and privatisation of public services and related processes. There will also be a specific focus on employment, working conditions, productivity, service quality and prices. The conference will examine evidence and conclusions from further research by European experts on the privatisation of network industries and health services.

Organised in the framework of the EU-funded project PIQUE ('Privatisation of public services and the impact on quality, employment and productivity'), the PIQUE consortium will also take the opportunity to present the project's main results. Over a three year period, PIQUE studied the consequences of liberalisation and privatisation in four sectors (electricity, postal services, local public transport and health/hospitals) and six countries (Austria, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom).For further information, please visit:
