This pivotal year for Europe’s recovery has brought many challenges as well as new perspectives and opportunities for transformation, which have made coming together to debate and discuss Europe’s pressing issues more important than ever. As it has done for over 20 years, the European Business Summit is uniquely positioned as a debating platform for policy, business, and academia.
This year, the European Business Summit will highlight Europe’s ongoing digital and sustainable shifts – two major axes critical for the global economic recovery, to develop resilient healthcare systems, as well as to improve Europe’s efficiency in the fields of energy and agriculture. Keeping our continent at the forefront of innovation on the world stage will require efforts and investments from both the public and the private sector; but creating social acceptance will also be key to broaden the use and the efficiency of these new technologies. Together, key figures from business, policy, civil society and academia, will think of innovative solutions to create trustworthy ecosystems, integrated markets within the EU and an inclusive environment for companies, citizens and consumers alike.
Through a hybrid event combining a physical and online participation, this edition will be very timely to reflect on the implementation and the business’ contribution to the EU’s economic and social recovery plan, the Green Deal, and to discuss the post-Covid-19 roadmap. The new format of the Summit will include an in-person event with limited attendance and exclusive networking opportunities as well as the live-streaming of each panel discussion and interview.
