Notre Europe has convened a high-level task force to reflect on the future of EU/US relations, in the age of globalisation. The task force is composed of high-ranking former European statesmen and ministers, also members of the Board of Directors and/or the European Steering Committee of Notre Europe.
The high level task force has contributed to define a new approach for EU/US relations that will facilitate a common response to current global challenges. The rapporteur is Nicole Gnesotto, Vice-President of Notre Europe and Professor at the CNAM. The task force is assisted by Notre Europe’s research team: Sami Andoura, Timo Behr and Gaëtane Ricard-Nihoul.
This presentation is addressed to European parliamentarians and is not open to the public.
