Europe’s Futures Conference

The conference is the first event of the Future of Europe Task Force meetings, which are to be held in Austria and Romania during their respective Presidency in the Council of the EU. The conference is organised in cooperation with Aspen Institute Romania and Institute of Human Sciences, with the support of Erste Group and ERSTE Foundation.

The conference will consist of two blocks. The first one (The Future of Europe: Is There a Common Way Forward?) will focus on the challenges that the EU is facing both politically and economically, seeking to provide concrete policy recommendations for improving EU governance, and the second one (Digital Europe: Is Digitalization Bringing More Unity or Disparity to the EU?) on digitalization and its risks, looking for solutions to avoid the digital divide threatening the EU both externally and internally, and for recommendations to boost competitiveness and connectivity across the EU, with a special focus on Central and South East Europe; and a roundtable discussion with members of the Aspen and IWM communities in South East and Central Europe.
