CONFERENCES & EVENTS.

The 89 Initiative is at the vanguard of the public and policy debates, thanks to its cycles of events and flagship conferences organised all over Europe.

Their result is usually a short policy report or series of recommendations. Speakers and participants have included former heads of state, government, Nobel Prize winners, Commissioners, ministers, MPs, civil servants, and a plethora of academics and policy experts.

Today’s challenges, tomorrow’s solutions: EUrope fit for the future

Online Public Event | Videos Available on Facebook

At this year’s flagship conference, our 12 research teams from Athens, Bruges, and London presented their work and engaged with experts in their respective fields, from COVID-19 to climate, innovation, and immigration. Over the past year, they have investigated asylum provisions during the pandemic, the use of civic education to combat populism, the impact of local climate emergency declarations, and the role of predictive analysis for data-driven innovation, among others. The conference brought together different disciplines, methodologies, national contexts, and themes, united by a common focus on evidence-based policy innovation.
