The AUGUR consortium presented the main results of over three years of multidisciplinary research, namely four scenarios for Europe in the world of 2030. These scenarios were created according to developments which could occur in the spheres of economics, finance and politics, and taking into account environmental and demographic predictions.
The event was public and not just limited to the scientific community. It consisted of panel discussions involving researchers who have been directly involved or have collaborated on the AUGUR project, but also journalists and policy actors.
The conference was an opportunity to debate the immediate policy implications brought about by the research, at a moment when the very existence of the European Union is challenged both economically and politically.
