The Brussels Economic Forum

The Brussels Economic Forum is the flagship annual economic event of the European Commission.

The Forum brings together European and international policymakers, opinion leaders, academics, civil society and business leaders to debate hot economic topics and share new perspectives on Europe's economic challenges.

#EUBEF18 will focus on the future of the European Economy in an era of digital disruption:

  • What is the future of work in a digital economy?
  • What financial system for a deeper EMU in a digital era?
  • The future of EMU: towards more resilience and convergence
