Over 60 leading experts representing the think tank community from the EU and Eastern Partnership will participate at the Eastern Partnership Think Tank Forum (EaP Think Tank Forum) that will be held for the first time in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova, on September 21-23, 2017. The event is organised upon the initiative of the Institute for European Policies and Reforms (IPRE), the Georgian Institute for Strategic Studies (GISS) and New Europe Center (former Institute of World Policy (IWP)), in cooperation with the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (EaP CSF). The Forum is organised within a project funded by the EU and National Endowment for Democracy (NED) through the EaP CSF Re-granting Scheme 2017 and co-financed by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS).
The overall aim of the Forum is to better connect think tanks across Europe for a maximum impact on their research, policy making and advocacy efforts in promoting Europeanisation. The participants of the Forum will discuss the challenges and perspectives of the future relations of the EaP countries with the EU. Moreover, during the event the experts will also discuss and draft a set of policy recommendations for the upcoming Eastern Partnership Summit to be held in late November in Brussels.
More detailed information about the objectives, the programme and participants of the Forum, as well as the draft Recommendations to be discussed next week in Chișinău can be found on the webpage of the Forum www.ipre.md/eapttf2017.
