As a successor of the Marshall Plan that contributed so decisively to Europe’s reconstruction, the OECD is proud and eager to engage in initiatives that aim to reflect and provide a long-term perspective on what should be the way forward for the Europe.

We live in times of disruption where old economies have broken down. It’s important that we all collaborate, experiment and build a new growth model for Europe beyond the crisis. I believe it should be built on four pillars: research, innovation, education and entrepreneurship. The first three create an ecosystem and entrepreneurship is the glue, … Continued

“Can you imagine Europe without young people? That would be impossible. Young people have been calling for a more united and progressive Europe since early days but somewhere along the way, young people got forgotten. We reimagine Europe every day.
