The EU-Australia Leadership Forum project provides a platform for leaders, both established and emerging, from business, media, non-governmental organisations, civil society, think tanks, politics and academia to collaborate on new ideas to promote and deepen the relationship between the European Union and Australia.

The cornerstone events of the project are an annual Senior Leaders’ Forum, and an Emerging Leaders’ Forum, held back-to-back, alternately in Australia and in Europe. The first of these events took place in Sydney in June 2017 and the second is planned to take place in the second half of 2018.

These annual fora are supported by a program of Sectoral Policy Workshops covering topics of common interest to Australia and Europe. The first sectoral policy workshop, on the topic of Digital Development, took place in March 2017.
