PIQUE Conference "Good jobs for good services? The impact of privatisation of public services on employment, productivity and service quality"
The conference will present the main results of a three-year European research project on "Privatisation of Public Services and the Impact on Employment, Productivity and Service Quality" (PIQUE). The project is funded by the European Commission and has studied the consequences of liberalisation and privatisation in four sectors (electricity, postal services, local public transport and health/hospitals) and six countries (AT, BE, GE, PO, SW, UK). In addition the conference will present evidence and conclusions from further research by distinguished European experts on the privatisation of network industries and health services.
