For the first time, three French-German think tanks join forces to reflect upon the EU digital technologies strategy: Renaissance Numérique, EuropaNova, and Das Progressive Zentrum. As a concrete realization of this partnership, the think tanks are launching a common series of conferences in both France and Germany: “EU Digital Challenges”.
On 6th April 2018, Das Progressive Zentrum in cooperation with the Progressive Policy Institute held a farewell reception to wrap up the visit of a US-Delegation including Democrats and Republicans. The event marked the highlight of a five day trip to Europe – including Paris, Brussels and Berlin – in which the state of transatlantic relations were at the center of interest.
After the establishment of a new grand coalition on 14th of March 2018 in Germany, Fedor Ruhose, Policy Fellow at Das Progressive Zentrum, and DPZ-Director Dominic Schwickert analyse the current state of the centre-left parties, in particular the SPD. They point out upcoming challenges in the national and European context and set out five key challenges which German social democrats must overcome.
