We look at cooperation as a crucial way to get ready for the future and to find solutions for tomorrow. Cooperating with your bigger ecosystem is essential to paint your future and stands opposed to working in competition for selfish benefit. As part of our reimagined Annual Conference, we are organising a whole raft of different activities to foster networking and opportunities for cooperation. In particular, our cooperation rooms aim to focus on real collaborative possibilities.

During these small meetings, participants will work together on their specific and common institutional stakes with a view to sharing their concerns and knowledge, and even discussing the ways in which further cooperation could play a part. During the course of the meeting, participants will get to experience cooperation as a group, by exchanging learnings, failures and discoveries. Facilitators will be present to guide you (when needed) in this journey of cooperation, which is an open-ended journey. Everyone succeeds when the group succeeds.

The final aim of the cooperation rooms is to highlight more specific topics for collaboration that can be deepened beyond the conference, with the support of EMN. In particular, the different cooperation rooms will look at Cooperation with #PolicyMakers, #NewMarketPlayers, #Peers.
