The CEU Center for EU Enlargement Studies (CENS) and Res Publica have the pleasure to request your company at the discussion:


Educating Innovators in Central Europe
Sharing Experience of New Europe 100 Challengers


March 20 (Friday) 2015 at 1.00 p.m.
CEU, Nádor 9, Popper Room



In October 2014 Res Publica together with Google, the Financial Times and the International Visegrad Fund announced New Europe 100, the list of exceptional individuals from Central and Eastern Europe who challenge science, business, politics, media and culture. Those outstanding individuals share innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, the driving forces for modernization and prosperity.

How could we draw from their background to plan better educational and economic policies for the future?
In what systemic way could we foster innovation and entrepreneurship among the youngest generation?
What kind of reforms do citizens and markets of Central and Eastern Europe need to prosper and grow?


Péter Balázs, Director, Center for EU Enlargement Studies
