IN2030 Summer University 2022
Shaping our future to 2030 and beyond
After some reflection, it has been agreed to postpone the IN2030 Summer University due to take place on Thursday 15th September to Friday 16th September in Oxford.
Since we began making preparations for the event at the beginning of the year, many factors have changed, not least a new geopolitical order arising as a result of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. This has led to severe economic and social challenges which continue to worsen, for example the rise in inflation resulting from the soaring costs of gas and fuel. Furthermore, a new Prime Minister and Government is coming into office the same week as we had planned to hold discussions on long term ideas looking to 2030. The whole focus of today’s political debates is how to resolve immediate challenges, rather than the luxury of looking a decade ahead.
Instead, we are currently planning to reschedule the event in the first half of next year. Hopefully by then, the situation will be more stable, allowing a better environment to consider long-term trends and their consequences for the UK and Europe. We will keep you in touch with our plans and hope you will be able to join us in person then.
The Summer University is organised in cooperation with the
Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies and the Conservative European Forum, and enjoys support from the European Union Delegation to the United Kingdom. This event receives financial support from the European Parliament. Sole Liability rests with the organizers, the European Parliament is not responsible for the activity.
