Europe is a promise – of diversity, combined strength, and freedom. How can we deliver on this promise permanently for Europe’s economy and society? And what answers will Europe find to the major challenges of digitalisation and sustainability, as well as to the rivalry between the global economic powers?
These questions surrounding the future of Europe will be the focal point of the 1st European Economic Conference on 26.-27. September 2022 in Berlin. The conference will create a platform for high-calibre representatives from European business, politics, and academics, and will give key voices and relevant debates the space they deserve. The following speakers will discuss with you the current status of the European Economic Area and potential scenarios for the future: Christian Lindner, Federal Minister of Finance, Germany, Aušrinė Armonaitė, Minister of Economy and Innovation, Lithuania, Nadia Calviño, Minister for Economy and Digitalization, Spain, Dr Anton Hofreiter, Chairman of the Committee for European Union Affairs, Bündnis 90/Die Grünen, Lars Klingbeil, Co-Chair, SPD, Heli Tiirmaa-Klaar, Director, Digital Society Institute (DSI), ESMT Berlin, Siegfried Russwurm, President of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), Günther H. Oettinger, President of United Europe e.V.
In collaboration with United Europe and the ESMT (European School of Management and Technology), the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung invites you to get involved in the dialogue about the future of Europe and to join influential figures in European public life in intensive discussion to create momentum for a strong Europe.
The main day of the conference will be complemented by an exclusive pre-event evening, which will enable direct discussion between speakers and selected conference participants during an inspirational supporting programme.
The conference will be held in German.
