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.
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.

Margrethe Vestager, European Commissioner for Competition, delivered the keynote speech at Bruegel's Annual Dinner 2018, held on 3 September 2018.
The 2018 Annual Meetings will be held on 3-4 September and will feature sessions on European and global economic governance, as well as finance, energy and innovation.
The Annual Meetings are Bruegel’s flagship event. They offer a mixture of large public debates and small private sessions about key issues in European and global economics. In a series of high-level discussions, Bruegel’s scholars, members and stakeholders will address the economic policy challenges facing Europe.
Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President for Energy Union at the European Commission, delivered the closing keynote speech at Bruegel's Annual Meetings on 7 September 2016.
The Annual Meetings are a high point in Bruegel's calendar.
Bruegel's Annual Conference is a closed-door event with three panel discussions on banks and capital markets, growth perspectives, and monetary policy and central banking.
The Annual Dinner is a closed-door session which offers Bruegel members and partners the opportunity to discuss the European economics in a relaxed and intimate setting.
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.
How can new technologies help the global economy recover from the shocks of recent years? Can ICT and digital innovation improve productivity and create sustainable growth?
