FRFG Con­fer­ence on the intro­duc­tion of the EU2020 Strategy

ImageOn June 24, 2010, the con­fer­ence “The EU 2020 Strat­e­gy — Does it set up Europe for the 21st Cen­tu­ry?” was held in Berlin. EU 2020 is the suc­ces­sor to the Lis­bon Agen­da. The con­fer­ence was orga­nized by the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion in Ger­many and the FRFG in order to increase the pro­file of the strat­e­gy. In three pan­el dis­cus­sions, “Sus­tain­able Growth”, “Smart Growth” and “Inte­gra­tive Growth”, experts and offi­cials of the EU-com­mis­sion and of the Ger­man gov­ern­ment dis­cussed impor­tant aspects of the strat­e­gy. The FRFG was rep­re­sent­ed by Pro­fes­sor Rolf Kreibich, chair­man of the Board of Trustees, and Patrick Weg­n­er, research assis­tant at the FRFG.

Around 200 peo­ple par­tic­i­pat­ed in the full-day con­fer­ence. The var­i­ous experts’ opin­ions and the focus on the civil­ian soci­ety of the FRFG com­ple­ment­ed one anoth­er profitably.
