Generation 2004 takes the AST and AST/SC issues very seriously and proactively on addressing them at every possible opportunity with the Appointing Authority including at political level. In line with this, we have recently started to organise lunchtime conferences on the topic and meeting our AST and AST/SC colleagues all over the Commission. The latest such conference just took place in Luxembourg and further sessions are planned at different Commission workplaces in the near future. In these conferences a presentation of the AST and AST/SC career history and current situation status is delivered. This is followed by an open debate where questions are answered and possible solutions are offered. Stay tuned!
