Now in its eight year, the Economic Ideas Forum (EIF), the Martens Centre's high-level conference on economy will be held on 7 November 2017 in Brussels.
Every year, the EIF brings together European Commission officials, members of the European Parliament, economic experts, business leaders and other influential stakeholders from around the world. The Forums provide an opportunity to consider innovative ideas and propose solutions to the economic challenges facing the EU economy.
Under this year's heading "New Europe, New Economy", our expert speakers will discuss wide-ranging topics including online safety, investment, globalisation, digital issues and welfare.
Every year, over 250 participants attend the conference. In 2017, the EIF was awarded the European Excellence Award in the category "Best political workshop or congress". Previous Forums have been successfully held in Brussels, Bratislava, Helsinki, Dublin, London and Madrid.
