One year to go – what is still to be achieved?

By SEAP in collaboration with DeHavilland EU

Reflecting on the 2019-2024 EU term so far, its success, existing challenges, and the remaining opportunities ahead for EU public affairs professionals

We are excited to invite you to an upcoming session that will reflect on the current mandate and the activity of the EU institutions. This event will provide an opportunity to discuss the successes and challenges that have been faced during this time, as well as taking a look ahead to the Parliament elections in 2024.

With the end of the mandate quickly approaching, there will be a focus on the big files remaining on the EU’s agenda. This discussion will provide valuable insights for public affairs professionals who are interested in the opportunities that lie ahead.

We hope that you will join us for what promises to be an informative and engaging event.
