On 16 November 2021, prof. Alberto Alemanno will give a Guest Lecture on the Conference for the Future of Europe (CFE): "Releasing Europe’s democratic genie. What to expect from the Conference on the Future of Europe?"

Students and faculty from the universities of Trento, Innsbruck, and Bolzano as well as researchers at Eurac research will discuss the potential of the CFE, the participatory approach as well as the possibilities arising from it for European integration. The event is organized by the School of International Studies and will take place in Trento, the speaker and the other universities will be connected via video chat.

The lecture will be followed by a detailed explanation of the website set up by the European Union especially for the CFE (https://futureu.europa.eu/pages/getinvolved?locale=en), which is intended to enable broad participation in the discussion on the future of Europe, as anyone and everyone can submit their contributions on the future of Europe there.

This occasion and the existing euro-regional academic network should be used as a unique cross-border, cross-university and cross-disciplinary opportunity for students to express, develop and exchange ideas about the future of Europe. Accompanied by the professional expertise of faculty and researchers, the students will be enabled to work together autonomously on their ideas on topics such as climate change and the environment, digital transformation, work or migration in various groups structured according to the themes of the CFE.

The work on the individual topics shall be left to the creativity of the individual groups. After their presentation by the students, the results shall be submitted to the CFE via the website and in this way contribute to the debate at European level.

Students and researchers in Innsbruck and Bolzano will be able to connect via zoom:
