GR:EEN Second Executive Briefing Conference
On Monday 20 May the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted the international conference “New Regional Power: What Role for Europe?”. The event was conceived and arranged by ISPI within the FP7 “Global Reordering: Evolution through European Networks” (GR:EEN). Members of the network are 16 universities and think tanks from all over the world, coordinated by the University of Warwick. With its four years' duration and its far-reaching international membership, GR:EEN comes out on top among similar EU-funded research projects.
The event is the second in a series of Executive Briefing Conferences that ISPI organizes every year throughout the project's time span. The goal of these meetings is to discuss the results achieved by the partners in order to come up with further insights and policy recommendations to be presented to a group of stakeholders including policy makers, public officers, business and civil society actors. In doing so, ISPI ensures that the project's research activities have a concrete impact on how public and private actors respond to the multipolar trends in world politics.
