The World and Europe up to 2050: Trends and Challenges

by Domenico Rossetti di Valdalbero

Principal Administrator, European Commission, DG Research * Speaking in personal capacity

About the Presentation

The European forward-looking activities aim to advise on the main trends and challenges the world and Europe will have to face in the next decades. Issues such as globalisation, demographic change, economic development, energy transition, global warming, R&D intensity and land-use have direct consequences on the European Union (EU).

The EU model and the place of Europe in the world are depending on the way these main trends are tackled and how these challenges could be transformed into opportunities and potential transitions.

The lecture will present the results of recent EU qualitative and quantitative forward-looking activities. It will focus on questions related to the ageing population, the share of European GDP worldwide, the future energy demand, the climate change mitigation and adaptation, the R&D perspective and the urbanisation phenomenon.


The Aurelio Peccei Lecture-Event will take place at
Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium (Vesalius room)
