Watch Christian Krappitz, European Commission Representation in the UK.
With the aim of identifying constructive ways to develop European prosperity, the Global Policy Institute, the Federal Trust and the Industry Forum, financially supported by the European Commission Representation in London, have run throughout 2012 a project entitled 'Getting Europe Moving Together'. Its aim was to review a range of economic, political and social factors bearing on the prospects for the European economy in the coming decade.
In the first stage of the project, key topics selected by the European Commission were analysed and discussed by researchers to help understand the factors that need to be addressed to facilitate cooperation and economic progress.
These topics and the over-riding issue of European leadership were then addressed at a major conference that took place in London on 16th October and was attended by some eighty delegates drawn from business, politics, academia and the media.
