Mr. Esko Aho, former Finnish Prime Minister, will moderate.
About 35 individuals will participate from some 15 countries, including old, new and future EU Members States. (About 60 seats will be available for interested spectators.) The relevant main parties will be represented: leaders of industry, new-graduates, student organisations, employers' organisations, university rectors / professors, and senior individuals from Education and other relevant Ministries. The discussion will be recorded and the highlights presented in a DVD (30 min.).
