FutureLab Europe is a program completely out of the ordinary. Why is that? Well, first of all you are part of a unique group of people, more diverse (by profession, nationality, etc.) than any summer school or seminar you have attended in the past; secondly, you will meet a impressive number of high level experts and officials of the European Union; and last but not least: the ideas that come up during the discussions, seeds for future projects we aspire to develop in the years to come. Thinking outside the box (or “bubble”, as some might say from time to time) is the alternative for today’s Europe!
