Are you tired of the media only focusing on national issues and leaving the future of Europe in the dark? Do you have a unique perspective and expertise to share on European issues? If so, we want you to join us in our mission to bring diverse voices to the forefront and shed much-needed light on the future of Europe.

STUDIO Europa is a project dedicated to exploring and generating innovative ideas for the future of Europe and the European public discourse.

Don’t miss this chance to be a part of something truly impactful and make a difference in shaping the future of Europe!
