How about a short input on EU affairs before you start your working day? 

On 25 April 2023, we will be talking about the stability of the European banking system. The recent bank failures in the USA and Switzerland have shown how fragile our financial system still is. What has the EU learned from the 2008 financial crisis, how safe are European banks and where is there still a need for reform? What is missing to complete the banking union and how can the EU better protect taxpayers and savers from new bank failures? 

Our financial market expert Sebastian Mack and Soultana Paschalidou, Senior Economic Advisor at the Representation of the European Commission in Germany, will give an overview of the proposals currently being discussed in Brussels to make Europe's banking system more resilient.

The EU to go format goes as follow: Five slides introduction to the topic and five slides positions and proposals on the focus topic. This will be followed by ten minutes of discussion. At 9 am the event is over after only 30 minutes.

8:30 Introduction to the focus topic
8:40 Positions and proposals on the focus topic
8:50 Question and answer
9:00 Off to the (Home) Office

This EU to go will take place in person only at the Q-Club (Friedrichstraße 181). The entrance is via the inner yard right next to Deutsche Bank's Quartier Zukunft, just a few meters away from the Hertie School. 

You can find the slides (in German) here.
