“I would like to thank the European Policy Centre (EPC) for putting the social dimension of the EU at the centre of its activities. … Your work helps to enrich the debate on the future of Europe. And so, I warmly welcome the EPC Report on Youth Unemployment, as an important input to this debate.”

Marianne Thyssen,
Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility,
European Commission

“The European Policy Centre has always been an excellent platform to discuss European politics from various angles.”

Miroslav Lajčák,
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Slovak Republic

“It’s a pleasure to speak at the European Policy Centre - an organisation which for almost two decades has been at the forefront of discussions on the European Union - leading debate on issues such as the EU's place in the world, migration and diversity, and the promotion of economic growth.”

Nicola Sturgeon,
First Minister of Scotland

“Enjoyed presenting the new 'better regulation agenda' this afternoon at the European Policy Centre. Great questions from the audience, a cross section of diplomats, NGOs, think-tanks, officials, journalists – people who really know Brussels inside out.”

Frans Timmermans,
European Commission First Vice-President and Commissioner for Better Regulation, Interinstitutional Relations, the Rule of Law and the Charter of Fundamental Rights

“It is a privilege for me to be able – through the European Policy Centre – to engage with so many stakeholders at once. With its extensive work on energy, the EPC is certainly at the forefront of the debate. I understand that EPC will continue to provide independent input through its Energy Programme and this type of multi-stakeholders event. This is what the Energy Union Strategy is all about. It is first and foremost an integrated project with decentralised ownership.”

Maroš Šefčovič,
European Commission Vice-President for Energy Union

“Like many diplomatic missions in [Brussels], we at USEU deeply value the work that the EPC does in creating a platform for different perspectives to be heard on issues that are important to the European Union and its allies”

Anthony Gardner,
US Ambassador to the European Union
