ZEW Lunch Debates

After a long hiatus due to the Corona pandemic, we are very happy to be back with our quarterly ZEW Lunch Debates in Europe’s capital, Brussels. Starting in 2014, the ZEW Lunch Debate series has since established itself as a valued platform for open and spirited debate on current economic challenges facing Europe.

At this event series, ZEW researchers present their own ideas and policy recommendations, which is followed by an intense discussion about their findings and proposals with EU decision-makers, and Brussels-based experts. Audience participation in the debates is warmly encouraged.

Taking place in the European quarter of Brussels at lunch time, the 90-minute events are aimed at staff of EU institutions, as well as representatives from the realms of business, the media, non-governmental organisations, and academia.

Participation is free and by invitation.
