Since Social Dialogue and Collective Bargaing are effective tools to face the redundancy in the liberal professions’ sector due to digitalisation, the project foresees the consolidation of the social dialogue mechanism in Countries with a weak tradition and accelerate the process towards collective bargaining in Countries where the social dialogue mechanism is in force. Several actions are created to support and develop the project. The core actions are represented by the National Seminars and the European Conference to spread the project conclusions.
