The new Commission, European Parliament and President of the European Council will enter office at a challenging time for Europe, the EU and the Commission itself. The results of the European elections, combined with the ongoing economic challenges, clearly call for the delivery of effective change and impacting measures.

At this event Bruegel will launch its Memos on Europe’s economic priorities for the next mandate of the European Institutions. These Memos, addressed to the next Presidents of the European Institutions and to new European Commissioners, are written by different Bruegel Scholars and focus on the crucial economic aspects of the EU policy-making.

Focusing on the most important economic questions at the EU level, the individual memos are intended to be a strategic to do list, outlining the state of affairs, the key challenges and priorities our individual scholars consider central in the next five years.
