The CoR-EU Conversation Tables

With a view to stimulating cross-fertilisation of thoughts, knowledge and expertise among the members of the Club of Rome EU-Chapter, the Board of directors launched monthly conversation tables over a topical issue.

These tables are taking place over lunch from 12:30 to 14:30 every first Wednesday of the month at the congress centre Amazone, rue du Méridien 10 Middaglijnstraat, 1210 Brussels. See Metro 2 or 6: Madou. Bus 65 + 66 Quetelet.

Participation is for Full & Associate members only and is limited to a maximum of 12 to 15 participants in order to facilitate dialogue. Registrations are on the basis of “first come, first served”. Participants pay 20 € on the spot for their meal and drinks.

Invitations are mailed to all members one or two weeks beforehand, together with a short introductory note on the subject. Members are invited to submit conversation subjects for future meetings to the Executive Committee, c.o. secretary at
