EPC Friday Update – Online
In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the extraordinary measures in place and the pace of developments, not least the European Council’s decision to hold weekly teleconferences in response to the ongoing crisis, the EPC is introducing a new weekly update to keep its members informed about the key developments on COVID-19 and the implications for Europe’s economy, society, global role, and EU politics in general. Every Friday, our senior analysts will share with you online their assessment of the latest developments, evaluate emerging and ongoing measures at EU and member state level, and consider what they mean for the EU’s longer-term future.
At this first Friday Update, Janis A. Emmanouilidis, EPC Director of Studies, and Fabian Zuleeg, EPC Chief Executive, will analyse the overall state of affairs and Europe’s response to the crisis, the outcome of this Thursday’s European Council teleconference and the latest developments on COVID-19. They will also discuss the potential impact of the pandemic on the EU budget (MFF) and the Brexit negotiations in particular. Jacki Davis will moderate the discussion.
THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO EPC MEMBERS, EU OFFICIALS AND THE MEDIA
