What is the EPPC all about?
Discuss critical European issues
Learn from experts from all over the world
Create a network of brilliant young minds
Shape the policy ideas of tomorrow
The European Public Policy Conference (EPPC) is a unique initiative that empowers public policy students to take a leading role in shaping the debate on critical European policy issues. This fully student-run event is sponsored by the IPLI Foundation and organized by the students of the Hertie School in Berlin. Thanks to a highly interactive format, the EPPC provides an unparalleled opportunity for future policymakers to engage with prominent political leaders and experts, and to address the pressing challenges that Europe faces in the twenty-first century. For every edition of the EPPC, students are responsible for all aspects of the event, including creating the conference concept, inviting speakers, and selecting the city where the EPPC is held.
Our keynote speakers bring unique insights and alternative perspectives to the discourse on sustainability and climate action. We are excited to kick off the conference with a speech that will provide inspiration for the whole conference weekend.
EPPC 2021 will be highly interactive! We offer our participants the opportunity to engage with prominent political leaders and experts, discuss pressing challenges regarding the circular economy and network with speakers and fellow participants.
Our workshops are an excellent opportunity for participants to combine theoretical insights gained through the keynotes and panels with practical applications. Through direct and interactive exchange, participants acquire practical insights and learn how to deal with real-world situations.
