About the Team

The DIALOGUE ON EUROPE team is constituted of two units: the international Co-Facilitators, who moderate the four Thinking Labs, and the operative team from Das Progressive Zentrum, in charge of the logistics of the project.


The Co-Facilitators are driving and moderating the four Thinking Labs of the DIALOGUE ON EUROPE project. Each Lab is lead by a couple of Co-Facilitators composed of one Policy Fellow from Das Progressive Zentrum and of a member of one of our European partners. They are expert in their domains and assure a continuity as well as a diversity within each Lab, ensuring thus better results.
