The Hidden Vitality of Europe

  • Paul Scheffer, Professor of European Studies, Tilburg University

On the surface, Europe seems to move from crisis to crisis without moving towards a stronger continent. Paul Scheffer will give us an insight below this surface. He takes us through some of the underlying phenomena that over decades and even centuries have created a European continent that is strong and vital. He is convinced that we do not cherish these phenomena enough in these times of short-termism, populism and surviving crises.
The role of enterprising families in today’s European economy is well known, but Paul Scheffer will also reflect on how they can benefit and contribute to the hidden vitality of Europe.
