In various formats on stage (panels, executive interviews, key-notes) our speakers will discuss different approaches to these challenges
Global Policy Panel
The global policy panel focuses on the impact of the dynamic and complex effects on Europe’s economic, political, and social landscape, especially in the light of the ongoing war in Ukraine. The panel participants will discuss the changing nature of global governance and how Europe can navigate the shifting power dyna mics to advance its interests and its strategic partners.
Strategic autonomy & Global Trade Panel
This panel aims to explore how Europe can achieve greater strategic autonomy in a global trade landscape dominated by superpowers like China and the United States. Experts will discuss ways to strengthen Europe‘s economic resilience, including developing a more self-sufficient supply chain and promoting fair and sustainable trade practices, as well as arguing in favour of free trade agreements and regional cooperation.
Artificial Intelligence & Innovation Panel
This panel tries to explore the potential of artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies to transform Europe’s economy and society. Experts will discuss the ethical and regulatory challenges associated with Al and innovation, as well as the opportunities to foster growth and innovation.
The financing panel aims to outline challenges and opportunities in financing Europe‘s economic recovery in the post-pandemic era, the post-war era, as well as financing the transition to a more sustainable and green economy. Panelists will discuss the role of public and private investment, the importance of sustainable finance, and how to balance economic competitiveness for Europe, and sustainable developments.
