Generation Z in Europe

Generational research with a European focus

Generation Z and their expectations, perspectives and impulses, especially with regard to their entry into working life, was a central field of research of Prof. Dr Christian Scholz (Chair of Business Science, esp. Organisation, Human Resources and Information Management).
In cooperation with the CEUS, the congress in November 2016 tried to answer the following questions:

  • Are there country-specific differences?
  • What similarities are there?
  • Is there even a 'European' Generation Z, especially in a global comparison?

"Generation Z in Europe" – CEUS congress on 28./29.11.2016

On 28 and 29 November 2016, an international conference on the topic of Generation Z in Europe took place in cooperation with Villa Lessing – Liberale Stiftung Saar and with the support of the University's Internationalisierungs­fonds. Generation Z experts from Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Serbia, Russia and Bulgaria traced European specifics of the generation born in 1995 and later.


The conference proceedings (edited by Christian Scholz and Anne Rennig) "Generations Z in Europe. Inputs, Insights and Implications" were published at Emerald in autumn 2019.
