CSIevent: European Business Summit: 22 - 23 May

The Corporate Social Innovation network will be hosting a session at the European Business Summit on the 22 - 23 May 2017. 

European Business Summit (EBS) is an organisation that creates one of the largest networking and debating events in Brussels. We describe ourselves as a key player in bringing business and politics together and our aim is to stimulate thinking on European issues that span political, social and environmental challenges. Through its events and publications, EBS delivers an inspired and informed contribution to policy-making in Europe.

The mission is twofold: Aim to bring politics and business together in order to discuss and pursue their common goals. We join influencers and legislators from contrasting perspectives, to give a voice to all sides of the debate. The other priority of EBS is to provide the European institutions with a platform where they can place their top priorities in the spotlight. This way, businesses and politics can work together on the economic growth and wellbeing of society.

The European Business Summit works with companies of all sizes, but also with associations, governments and regional representatives. NGOs, academia and think tanks from across all sectors are likewise welcome, whether they come from the private or public sector. EBS summits exist for the purpose of creating cohesive solutions and improvements to current policy-making issues.

The European Business Summit creates the prestigious 2-day event of The European Business Summit as well as topical and relevant 1-day summits that are held throughout the year.

EBS gives business representatives the opportunity to engage in a dialogue where they can demonstrate that business can play a key part to the solutions needed in today’s sociopolitical context.

In the run-up to The European Business Summit, EBS holds monthly Steering Committees with regular guest speakers from EU political institutions. This committee, comprised of EBS partners, helps form the best possible summit by gaining   vital insight from those who are directly involved.

In addition to the annual EBS conference, European Business Summit is becoming recognised for its topic / sector specific events such as Energy, Back From Davos, Think Digital...
