EUROPEAN MONDAYS- TALKS ON THE FUTURE OF EUROPE
Online, from 15 March to 24 May
The Conference on the Future of Europe will take place in May 2021. We thus propose holding a cycle of seminars and conferences that will enable learning about the topics that will then be discussed.
Book presentations, keynote conferences and discussion seminars on topical issues will be held throughout this cycle. At the end of the cycle those attending may receive an accrediting diploma (the possible validation of 1 ECTS for UCM students is being negotiated).
The periodicity will be weekly, on Mondays at 18.00. The format will be semi-virtual. Speakers and moderators will be at the ICEI, while participants will follow online.
Organised by the Complutense Institute of International Studies (ICEI), the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation, the Complutense University of Madrid, and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.

Speeches will be given in Spanish and there will be no simultaneous translation.
