ABOUT EBS

Beyond recovery: Towards a sustainable and innovative Europe

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 and its renewed cooperation with longstanding partners and neighbours – three major axes critical for the global recovery.

Through a hybrid event combining a physical and online participation, this edition will be very timely to reflect on businesses’ contribution to the EU’s economic recovery plans, the Green Deal, and 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.
