Europe on the Move? –
Stimulating New Ideas to Promote Liberty and Prosperity in a Changing World Order

together with ifo Institut
in cooperation with vbw and Heinz und Heide Dürr Stiftung

Europe is in a state of upheaval. The Corona crisis, digitalisation, climate change, Brexit and the global players USA and China are confronting Europe with new economic and political challenges that will require a readjustment of the EU’s internal structure. Is Europe ready to change to meet these challenges?

The aim of our XI International Congress is to establish a dialogue between academic researchers and experienced practitioners in related fields so as to generate new ideas on how the European Union, an ongoing cooperative project for peace and freedom, can continue to prosper and what economic, political and legal frameworks this will require.

For it is here that young, highly qualified academics from the fields of economics and law, the social sciences and the humanities have a special role to play. It is thus important that they be given the opportunity to share their ideas with leading decision-makers from the worlds of business, research, government and the media and to debate with them strategies for shaping the future of Europe.
