Mind the Gap: Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Europe, claiming 1.2 million lives in 2020 alone.

Let Me(at) in: The positive prospects of cultivated meat and the environmental impact of conventional food production represent a topic of significance for the global market sector as well as food concerns in Europe.

Tech it to the Limit: Assistive and Accessible technologies have provided people with disabilities with a higher quality of life, yet for many, they remain out of reach. How can the EU reinforce the current efforts to develop smart technologies and make them universally accessible to all who are dependent on them?


Guardians of the AI: With ChatGPT and other forms of AI bots gaining immense attraction amongst users, concerns have been raised over copyright and data protection issues of generative AI.

Unity is Strength: Russia's invasion of Ukraine and Finland's recent accession to NATO underline the importance of the relationship between the European Union and NATO for European security and defence. Given the growing importance of and political will for European strategic autonomy, how can the EU effectively shape this capacity while advancing cooperation with NATO?


And Tomorrow’s just a Dream Away: With the recent launch of the U-Space regulation allowing for more complex drone operations to take place, a future of urban air mobility is becoming more of a reality.
