The European Strategy Forum

The ESF on The Energy Union  and Climate Change will take place in Dubrovnik on October 25/26. The annual meeting on The Economics and Politics of the Euro Area will be held in Porto on the 22/23 November. Attendance is by invitation only but if you feel that you have expertise or experience that could contribute to these wide ranging discussions please contact EuroComment.

European Strategy Forum

Since 1 March 2014 the European Strategy Forum, which was founded in Portugal in 2006 has been integrated in and managed by EuroComment in Brussels. The Forum’s character and objectives remain unchanged (see 2015 programme)) and it will continue to meet up to four times a year in Croatia and Portugal, though meetings may also be held in Italy and Spain if the management committee so decides.

EuroComment is responsible for the finances of the Forum issuing and settling invoices in connection with its activities. In order to ensure continuity and enhance the quality of the meetings, EuroComment has constituted a small management committee.  Frans van Daele will join Peter Ludlow and Vladimir Drobjnac as chairmen.

Attendance at the ESF is by invitation only. However if you think that your company would both benefit from and be able to contribute to these confidential, high level discussions please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
