The YSC 2020 gathered around 35 young professionals from 13 different European countries, and the United States. 22 high level speakers attended the YSC as unique forum for challenging discussions and an exchange of individual perspectives. A fantastic public gathered for the open public sessions complementing the stimulating debates.
The two-day conference featured insightful open and closed sessions on a range of different topics. Throughout the workshop days, morning sessions were dedicated to the Fellows (Young Professionals Group) to critically discuss and reflect on diverse topics related to the EU’s security roadmaps, as well as recent political innovations. The afternoon – and evening sessions – were open to the public and Fellows had the opportunity to present their ideas, works and proposals, eventually discussing them with high ranked panellists, scholars and academic advisors. These later sessions took place at the stunning rooftop lecture hall of the Technische Universität Munich.
