7th European Business Summit

European Business Summit 2009

BUSINESSEUROPE and the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium (FEB) – with the support of the European Commission and the EU Presidency – are pleased to present you the 7th edition of the European Business Summit (EBS).

Dare and Care: sustaining Europe’s ambitions; Financing, Staffing and Greening


We are pleased to present you with the programme of the next European Business Summit (EBS). This 7th edition will take place on 26 and 27 March 2009 in Brussels under the theme: "Dare and Care: sustaining Europe’s ambitions; Financing, Staffing, Greening".

In order to sustain its ambitions to be a strong world player – especially in current times of economic crisis – Europe should Dare and Care better. Daring means that Europe needs to become more entrepreneurial. Doing business in the EU must become easier and more rewarding. Europe should take the lead in R&D and (eco) innovation. More growth and jobs should no longer be a slogan, but a practice. Caring implies taking care of the planet and the people. Economic progress should go hand in hand with a greening society and social protection of a better skilled workforce. A strong economy, ecological protection and social dynamism are the pillars of sustainability. They will also be the recipe of Europe’s future success. Therefore, they form the three building blocks of this EBS: Financing, Staffing and Greening.

We have, in cooperation with the European Commission and the Czech EU Presidency, developed a varied programme with three plenary sessions and fifteen workshops, built around these three leading themes. Business leaders will discuss with high-level decision makers, academics and NGOs from around the world on issues like the financial crisis, clean tech innovation, skills, climate change and energy and ageing. The goal is to come up with concrete solutions for a sustainable and ambitious Europe that is really Daring and Caring.
