6th edition of the European Long-Term Symposium

Confrontations Europe, in partnership with Caisse des Depots Group organize the sixth edition of the European Long-Term Symposium.

The objective of this symposium is to bring together the various actors of long-term investment in Europe to discuss the role of this public policy in the context of the European elections in 2024 and the next legislature (2024-2029). The future European mandate will have to respond to a number of challenges, including the ecological and digital transitions, the social crisis currently gripping Europe, and the need to establish European strategic autonomy in the fields of industry, defense and energy. Long-term investment will therefore be at the heart of Europe’s work and decision-making over the next five years.
