Bruegel Annual Meetings 2019

Register for the event

Bruegel's 2019 Annual Meetings will be held on 4-5 September and feature the launch of Bruegel's Memos to the New European Commission.

Sep 4 - 5, 2019 Palais des Academies, Rue Ducale 1, 1000 Brussels Public | On the Record Livestreamed Topic: Energy & Climate

On 4-5 September Bruegel will organise its Annual Meetings. As in previous years, the Meetings will offer relevant topical discussions through which we strive to contribute to the quality of economic policy making in Europe and beyond.

This time the event comes at a crucial moment in the European political agenda: a few months after the elections of the European Parliament and on the eve of the formation of the new Commission. The future trajectories of Europe’s political projects will be at stake and something important to consider on the global stage.

This year’s meetings will feature the release of Bruegel’s Memos to the New European Commission in which our scholars offer their recommendations to the new European leadership.

Emerging markets and Europe: time for different relationships?

Now that Europe can focus on medium-term issues rather than crisis management, it is the right time to reassess relations with the emerging markets. While the US seems to be betting on Asia, through its famous 'pivot' and the TPP, Europe is far from having a clear strategy. This session explored how to create a mutually beneficial relationship between Europe and the emerging markets.
