The 8th edition of the European Conference on personal and household services (PHS) is organised by EFSI in cooperation with the Consultative Commission on Industrial Change (CCMI) of the European Economic and Social Committee. It will take place on 29 January 2019 in Brussels.

The subject of this year’s conference will be the innovation in the PHS sector, including in its business models, working conditions, statistical issues and what policies can support best innovation in the sector. The results of a survey made by EFSI on PHS innovation will be presented and will feed into the debates throughout the day.

  • At the second panel, the co-authors of the first PHS Industry Monitor will discuss issues and possible innovations of the current PHS-related statistical methods together with other experts.
  • The last panel will wrap up the key points of the day and discuss with political representatives what role the EU can play in order to foster and support PHS innovation in Europe.
