EU Integration Forum (EUIF)

The EU Integration Forum (EUIF) is a groundbreaking initiative launched by the Robert Bosch Stiftung to bring together more than 80 young political decision-makers from all 28 EU Members States and all levels of government once a year to debate the challenges facing the European Union, and to create an EU-wide network of young leaders and thinkers committed to helping to shape the Union’s future.

The first EUIF was held under the patronage of European Council President Herman van Rompuy in September 2011 in Essen, Germany. The second EUIF in Rome was held under the theme of “The emergence of a two-speed Europe”.
The EUIF moves around the Union each year as part of its mission to promote genuine transnational dialog. The EUIF 2013 took place in Prague in November. The topic was "The European Union’s role in the globalised world of the 21st century". In September 2014 the EUIF took place in Barcelona and was held under the topic of "youth unemployment". 
Last year´s EUIF was held from on the 24th and 25th of September in Manchester and focused on the crucial question “How to restore faith in democracy".

The project was carried out in cooperation with IFOK GmbH.

After five years and five highly successful EU Integration Forums, the conference will not be organized in the future. The program therefore came to an end with the final EU Integration Forum in Manchester in September 2015.
