Day 1: Brainstorming

Thursday, 19 April


Today was the first full day of SFM 2018, a day filled with productive working group activity. Each of the policy groups first had a visit from their European Commission representative, which all participants found hugely valuable. Then, in the afternoon after another delicious meal, the first policy experts came to give an “on the ground” insight into the policy area. The main objective of the first full day was to begin the brainstorming stage of the policy making process.


These are our four working groups:

Rewarding Pharmaceutical Innovation in the EU


East-West Relationships


Preventing Extremism and Radicalisation through Local Inclusion


Boosting Digital Skills in the EU
