One key question faced by Europe is trust. Trust in others, trust of European citizens in public authorities, trust between employers and employees, trust in a shared common European future. These issues are culminating in recent sensitive debates on migrations, radicalisation, growth and austerity and on geopolitical changes.
The two-day conference “Trust: European Research Co-Creating Resilient Societies” offers a unique forum to discuss the different perceptions of trust and how research can contribute to fostering trust in societies. The conference is this year’s key event on SC 6 “Europe in a Changing World – Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies” in the EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme Horizon 2020. The conference will not only highlight research within the social sciences and humanities but also connect researchers with policy-makers and stakeholders willing to co-create resilient European societies.

The TRANSWORLD's final conference will tackle how to rethink transatlantic relations in the multipolar era characterised by emerging powers and growing interconnectedness – a situation in which transatlantic relations appear to have lost their bearings. Predictions that the decades-old alliance between America and Europe would fade away after the Cold War have not materialised, yet the West seems less cohesive than in the past. Is the transatlantic relationship experiencing a slow but inexorable structural drift? Or is the enduring partnership still in the process of adjusting to a changed world?
The conference will also address the challenges to transatlantic cooperation in shaping global governance. As the international system fragments into different constellations of power, the West can no longer claim exclusive leadership in global governance. How can the U.S. and Europe continue to shape governance mechanisms? Should they close ranks in a transatlantic fortress, seek alternative partnerships and alliances, or jointly try to co-opt other powers in the management of global challenges?
His Excellency David O’Sullivan, Ambassador of the Delegation of the European Union to the United States, The Honourable Gregory Meeks(D-NY), Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats, United States House of Representatives and The Honourable Marc Grossman, Vice Chairman, the Cohen Group will, among others, participate in the conference.
