YEL Delegation EBS 2017

YEL Delegation EBS 2017.

The European Business Summit (EBS) brings politics, academia and business together to collaborate on common goals and reflect on current trends and challenges in the economic sector. The EBS joins influencers, legislators and entrepreneurs with contrasting perspectives to give a voice to all sides of the debate. The Summit also provides European institutions with a platform where they can place their top priorities in the spotlight.

This year’s European Business Summit will gather more than 2000 participants in 50 different sessions over two days in Brussels. Jean-Claude Juncker, Federica Mogherini, and Mario Centeno will be present and among the 200 speakers. You do not want to miss this opportunity to interact with influential decisions-makers and get your voice heard! (the full list of speakers and sessions can be found at http://www.ebsummit.eu/).

The EBS 2018 will be exploring topics such as European trade strategy, healthcare, European economic diplomacy, Brexit, sustainable development goals, digitalisation of the internal market, immigration, EU-US relations in the Trump era and many other topics.
