Following a highly competitive international selection process, 52 emerging leaders from Australia and EU Member States have been selected to attend the 2018 EU-Australia Emerging Leaders Forum in Brussels.
The Emerging Leaders Forum brings together young professionals from both Australia and Europe to engage in discussions around the future of the EU-Australia relationship and contribute their ideas and recommendations to the Senior Leaders Forum, which is held immediately after the Emerging Leaders Forum with some cross-over between the two events.
The first Emerging Leaders Forum took place in Sydney from 2-6 June 2017, with 50 young leaders from Australia and Europe in attendance.
Applications to attend the 2018 Forum were open from 9 April – 31 May 2018 and attracted a record number of applications from across the globe.
Following the announcement, some successful applicants took to Twitter to share the news:
While others, like Dr Eric L. Hsu from the University of South Australia, made more formal announcements.
Over the coming months we’re looking forward to introducing you to more of the young, energetic professionals who will be attending the prestigious event in Brussels from 18-22 November 2018.
