Event Details

The COVID-19 crisis has completely changed the agendas of European governments, and as a consequence, the plans that Germany had for its presidency of the Council. Climate change, digitalization and trade policy with the United States, were among the main priorities of the upcoming presidency. The crisis has made Germany seriously revise its aims, as it is faced with leading the bloc’s  recovery effort.

Join us on June 19, 9:30, with Michael Vorländer, Head of Unit, Education and Research, Permanent Representation of the Federal Republic of Germany to the European Union, to discover the agenda and main priorities of the German Presidency.
