21.00 Pitching / Q&A


Social Market Economy is facing major challenges across Europe. Digitalisation, globalisation, and climate change have a significant impact on our economic and social model, calling for Liberals to shape a market economy that works for people and promotes development and prosperity across the EU.

We cordially invite you to join partners and friends of the Brussels office of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, to develop and discuss new ideas and innovative approaches for the Social Market Economy of the 21st century. Join us online and meet like-minded people in virtual working groups. Be inspired by our keynote speakers and receive expert advice from our mentors. Working group leaders coordinate the process within the teams.

This event is part of our innovative regional series of online hackathons under the banner “Engage Economy Europe21! Re-imagine Social Market Economy”. It engages Liberals across Europe and figures in the “Restart21 – Reshape Europe” Campaign of the FNF Europe office, which seeks to promote sustainable joint approaches to strengthen the EU’s role at home and abroad.
