EU Ideas Labs

EU Ideas Labs

Three EU flags in front of a glass building

Starting in the period of the German EU Council Presidency (second half of 2020), DAAD alumni associations and the DAAD network in the EU countries were asked to organise EU Ideas Labs for alumni. The Labs are designed to jointly develop forward-looking ideas for issues that are of particular importance for the future of the EU.

Alumni from EU countries and the Western Balkans provide ideas at events dealing with topics such as "The European Green Deal", migration or democracy in Europe. Due to the current CoVID-pandemic, the "Joint fight against pandemics" or the perspective "Europe Post-COVID" were added. 

Relevant impulses from the EU Ideas Labs are invited to present their ideas at a hybrid DAAD alumni meeting in march 2022. With the alumni events on the topic of the European Union, we would like to contribute to the discussion process on the future of Europe, which is currently also being formally initiated at EU level with the "Conference on the Future of the EU". Please have a look and join the multi-lingual platform to discuss ideas, contribute your results and findings or announce an event to come on this website:
