Democracy and Europe - Our common future?

The conference "Democracy and Europe", organized by Net4Society, the network of National Contact Points in Societal Challenge 6 in Horizon 2020, aims to bring together perspectives that look at the past, tackle present challenges and look into the future of democracy in Europe and beyond. The conference is open to researchers, companies, policy makers or anyone with an interest in Europe’s democratic future. This encounter of multiple perspectives and actors – academics, civil society, and policy-makers – is of utmost importance to help us move towards a more democratic society.
