Masterclass on the EU’s medium-term budget with Commissioner Oettinger

  • When: Thursday 18 January from 11.00-12.30 (including a simple lunch). The room is open from 10.30 hrs. There will be no “Leids kwartiertje”. Participation is free.
  • Where: Building De Wijnhaven of Leiden University, room 3.16.
  • How to sign up: please send an email to b.steunenberg@fgga.leidenuniv.nl. There is space for 30 participants maximum, on the basis of ‘first come, first served’.

This is why the debate must start with the question how Europe should look like in 2025 or 2030. To help identifying these priorities, I propose a simple test: Does this policy, this instrument provide an EU added value?”
