Ideas Lab 2015: Call for Youth

With this call, CEPS would like to select 33 young European scholars and professionals to participate in the Ideas Lab 2015, which will be held in Brussels on 26-27 February 2015. The Ideas Lab is CEPS’ annual flagship event which brings together Europe’s leading thinkers and policy-makers over two half days to discuss and debate new ideas for the keep topics that Europe needs to address. The overarching theme for this year is: More or Less Europe? This crucial question will be discussed across 11 parallel labs – Digital Economy, Regulation & Innovation, TTIP & Global Trade, Economy, Jobs & Skills, Finance, Energy, Climate Change, Rights & Security, Institutions and Europe in the World -, in a total of 33 sessions and 5 prime talks. To participate, just send us a paper/thesis/publication/report that you have written and that is relevant to one of the 33 sessions of the next Ideas Lab. Once selected, the 33 participants will be invited to attend and contribute actively to that session, as well as to the rest of the Ideas Lab. This means they will have the possibility to sit and debate in small discussion groups with leading European thinkers. The selected candidates will also be able to attend the Annual Journal of Common Market Studies Lecture: EU-China Relations, that will take place at the end of the second day.
