Update 3 – in the light of the Corona Crisis

 One week ago on the 18th of March, the EP and the EC expected an agreement on a mandate for the structure, governance and engagement of citizens in the Conference.

EPF's methodology on the Conference on the Future of Europe

This methodology has been gradually developed  after EPF's talks with the EP, the EC and the Council. The updated methodology is how we currently see a possible compromise between the wishes form the European institutions and a solid coherent methodology. The latest EPF methodology has also been reviewed by our methodology advisory board before been published.
