From the latest waves of the Covid-19 pandemic to the vaccine rollout across Europe, from the economic downturn to the numerous EU support schemes for Member States along with the Recovery and Resilience Fund, the Portuguese Presidency has been navigating numerous crises.

Yet, many important political topics are on the agenda for the coming months and beyond: EU strategic autonomy and supply chain resilience, EU healthcare competencies, the Conference on the Future of Europe, the role of big tech in Europe, advancing the sustainability agenda and so forth.

Join us for an online fireside chat with Telmo Baltazar, Principal Adviser at the European Commission, DG Communication and Adviser to the Portuguese Presidency. Telmo has long-standing experience in the European Commission as Senior Political Adviser for previous President Jean-Claude Juncker, a member of Viviane Reding’s Cabinet and an adviser to several Directors-General.

In the conversation steered by Tania Pentcheva, Public Policy Director at Cambre, you will glean insights and views on the big political challenges facing the EU during the rest of the Portuguese Presidency.
