Following the launch of the new European platform for philanthropy, bringing together Dafne and the EFC in one new organisation on Tuesday, December 7, we will host the virtual 2021 EuroPhilantopics conference on Wednesday, December 8 at 16h00 – 17h30.

This year’s conference is titled “Imagining the Future of Europe together” and will gather representatives of foundations, national associations of foundations and representatives of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council.

Following a keynote by European Commission Vice-President Margaritis Schinas, we will discuss how to best unlock the potential for collaboration between philanthropy and the EU, and how to build meaningful cooperation for the future of Europe: How do foundations already collaborate with EU institutions on different policy issues? What are the challenges and opportunities? What are the tools and approaches needed to further strengthen collaboration? How can we maintain and increase the space for philanthropy to operate freely across borders?
