On Wednesday, 18 October 2023, the 2nd Virtual Exchange of the 2023 EU-India Young Leaders Exchange was held with the support of the European Union in the context of the EU Policy and Outreach Partnership (EUPOP) in India.
At the opening of the event, Dr. Giulia Tercovich, EUPOP Project Outreach Coordinator, delivered introductory remarks about the initiative as a whole. The purpose of this 2nd exchange was to facilitate discussion and allow all members of the cohort to provide feedback on the policy brief they have been working on regarding EU-India relations. The policy brief is set to be published by the end of the year.
As a continuation of the 1st Virtual Exchange held in June, where Young Leaders were able to collaboratively generate preliminary ideas for the policy brief, this second exchange offered a valuable opportunity for all members of the cohort to engage in the discussion of the work completed for the policy brief so far and provide ideas on how to bring the project forward.
The cohort of 20 Young leaders was selected through a competitive selection process that assessed over 90 applications.
This event forms part of the EU Policy and Outreach Partnership (EUPOP) in India, an initiative that is financially supported by the European Union.
