On this Europe Day let us kindly invite you, on behalf of the organisers, the Institute of International Relations Prague and EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy, to save the date for the Prague European Summit 2023!

The 9th edition will be held on 15-16 November 2023

The Prague European Summit (PES) will be organised in Liechtenstein Palace in Kampa, Prague, with the high-level speakers & moderators physically present in Prague, under the auspices of the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic, with support of the Representation of the European Commission in the Czech Republic, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, Hanns Seidel Stiftung, European Investment Bank, and the City of Prague

The Summit is a strategic platform established in 2015 to tackle pan-European questions in light of the common challenges. It aims to set the EU trends of the future through dialogue with the highest levels of the European public and private sphere and to strengthen the role of the European Union in the world while building a sustainable and resilient society. Over the years, the Summit has connected more than 3500 public officials, business and NGO representatives, academics and journalists to discuss topics such as EU leadership, security, new technologies and the digital age, current economic & foreign policy challenges, or the impact of various policies and trends on European society.

The 9th edition of the Summit will focus on the multiplicity of European resilience: economic resilience during the twin transformations of the European economy, political resilience of European governance amidst democratic struggle against rising authoritarianism and illiberalism, and ultimately Europe’s fledgling transformation into an assertive, geopolitical power.

The conference will be in-person, with various formats planned (plenary panel discussion, “interview” format of a panel discussion, European chat). During the Summit week (13 – 16 November), several side events will take place, e.g. Urban Talks. Following the tradition of past editions, the “Vision for Europe Award” will be bestowed. 

The programme for Prague European Summit 2023 will be soon posted on our website and regularly updated with new speakers for individual panels.

Save the Date for the Prague European Summit 2023!

We look forward to your participation.
