The Martens Centre in cooperation with the Hanns-Seidel-Stiftung, the Political Academy of the Austrian People’s Party, the Foundation for a Civic Hungary and TOPAZ are proud to organise NET@WORK 2018. Now in its third year, the event has become the largest public platform of European centre-right think-tanks gathering to debate and advocate EU policies.
Experts, politicians and stakeholders from different EU countries will meet for a full day of panel debates, hosted by 12 different national think-tanks that are part of the Martens Centre network. Under the title "Managing change", this year's topics will include: migration and the refugee crisis; foreign and security policy challenges; EU political and socio-economic reforms; future of the EU and Brexit; populism and disinformation.

The aim of the event is to create a common ground for discussion, to develop new solutions and to advocate centre-right thinking, bringing together national and European priorities. The event will be composed of four main sessions, each including three different panel debates taking place simultaneously.
