E.Day is the result of the association of a strong media Lagardère, a prestigious university Paris-Dauphine and the Connecting Leaders Club, renowned for its high-level network.
What if, at last, Europe had the leaders it deserves? Leaders who would take their principles of pragmatism, solidarity, mutual understanding, openness and benevolence straightaway into the cold and distant halls of European technocracy.
It is too early to send Macron to the builders’ pantheon, but he, a staunch supporter of a united Europe, is betting his future re-election on the success of a dubious and peril-ridden undertaking to recast the EU from stem to stern and newly burnish the shield of its diplomacy in a world that is decidedly unstable and hazy.

To the West, we have Trump’s contempt, to the East, Putin’s “one-man democracy”, and to the South, Erdogan’s triumphal Turkey, not to mention the various alliances that form and are torn apart in Asia or the Middle East. Meanwhile, Europe entertains the most lofty promises possible. Although damaged by the recent series of crises, the European Union must not cede an inch of its status as the foremost world economic power.
It must doubtless constantly re-evaluate its basic values, adjust its verbose guidelines to economic reality, invest in the sprouting new fields of knowledge, bet on the innovativeness of its companies, invent new mechanisms for mutual assistance between European countries, re-inspire youth tempted by populism, and combat the social dumping that undermines it from within.
And, in the course of this unmanageable enterprise, Jupiter will have to count on his Juno: Germany. Not as the loving sister of mythology, but rather as an obligated and demanding partner. The opportunity for recovery is within our reach...and we must seize it now! [ reduce text ]
Make Europe Great Again is the title of this second edition of the E.Day, as a reference to both French and American Presidents, in order to shed light on Europe’s challenges and opportunities.
French President Emmanuel Macron's speech in front of the Congress gathered at Versailles recalled the importance to bind with the spirit of the founding fathers to create a new desire for Europe. [ see more ]
Business leaders are at the core of a new challenge to generate growth, tackle climate and financial challenges, support innovation and create jobs.
E.Day 2017 aims to gather key economic and political actors to exchange on the main European challenges, trigger new ambitions and support concrete projects.
The European Business Day is at the same time a high level B2B conference that aims to create a platform between companies and European institutions as well as an educational event to recall the general public the importance of Europe.
As the biggest player on the global trading scene, how to make Europe an asset for European companies ?
How to win the battle of innovation and attract talents ?
A full day of debates, meetings and networking between the economic and political leaders, regions and students to build the Europe of tomorrow.
This event will also be an opportunity to pay tribute to Simone Veil, one of Europe’s most emblematic figures. [ reduce text ]

Pierre Moscovici was born on 16 September 1957 in Paris. He obtained a degree in Economics and Political Science before completing DEAs (post-graduate diplomas) in Economic Science and Philosophy. He studied at the Paris Institute of Political Studies and joined the French National School of Administration (ENA) in 1982. There he focused on issues relating to the European integration progress, which he had been following closely since the 1970s, and became acquainted with Dominique Strauss-Kahn. When he left ENA in 1984, he joined the Socialist Party (PS). In the same year, he was appointed to the Court of Auditors and joined the Socialist Party’s group of experts. In 1988, he became Technical Adviser, then Policy Officer, to Lionel Jospin in the Ministry of National Education. Two years later, he became Head of Department for the modernisation of public services and financing at the French National Planning Board. That same year he joined the leadership of the Socialist Party as National Secretary for Research and as Treasurer. Pierre Moscovici first occupied a European post in 1994 when he became a Member of the European Parliament in the parliamentary group of the Party of European Socialists. In 1997, following the Socialist Party’s victory in the national elections, he entered the new cohabitation government formed by Lionel Jospin as Minister for European Affairs, a post that he would hold until 2002. Pierre Moscovici was therefore involved in the major European issues of this period, in particular the negotiations for the fifth enlargement of the European Union, the financial negotiations associated with Agenda 2000 and the development of the Lisbon Strategy. During the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second half of 2000, Pierre Moscovici’s main role was that of coordinator. He chaired the intergovernmental meetings that led to the Nice European Council in December 2000 and the signing of the Treaty of Nice in February 2001. He witnessed the difficulties in Franco–German relations during this period and saw his preparatory work for institutional reforms revised during the final negotiations in Nice. In 2002, Pierre Moscovici represented the French Government on the Convention on the Future of Europe until he was replaced by Dominique de Villepin following the formation of a new government. He was fully in support of the method of the Convention and the resulting draft Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe. Despite the subsequent modifications made to the draft Treaty by the Heads of State or Government of the 25 Member States, Pierre Moscovici defended the Constitutional Treaty and actively campaigned for the ‘Yes’ vote within the Socialist Party and in France in the run-up to the referendum held on 29 May 2005. In June 2004, Pierre Moscovici was once again appointed to the European Parliament as Vice-President until June 2007. He was a member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and was Parliament’s rapporteur on the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the European Union. During this time he was also President of the European Movement France for two years, from 2005 to 2006. In 2007, he became a Member of the French National Assembly in the fourth constituency of the Doubs département.
