“Thank you for contributing to a lively debate on the future of EU air policy”

Janez Potočnik,
European Commissioner for Environment

“I appreciate the capability of the European Policy Centre to provide a platform for dialogue between science and society, and between science and policy in particular. In so doing, the EPC supports my aim to ensure that European policies are based on the best possible evidence.”

Anne Glover,
Chief Scientific Advisor to the President of the European Commission

“Thank you for the excellent contributions, the two papers that you have distributed are remarkable. [They] illustrate the capacity for conflict resolution between [Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh issue].”

Philippe Lefort,
EU Special Representative to the South Caucasus

“The European Policy Centre has made an important contribution to an open and dynamic debate on Europe”

José Manuel Barroso,
European Commission

“The [Single European Labour Market] paper provides a good overview of the main patterns of labour mobility in Europe throughout the crisis years, and explains clearly the benefits of people’s ability to move across borders. It also makes a number of interesting policy recommendations, which have the potential to trigger a good discussion”

László Andor,
European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion

“The EPC is greatly valued for its focused and practical analysis of European issues, both short and long term, and for promoting debate on these issues among a very wide range of participants. Its role in providing a platform for visitors to Brussels such as myself is also deeply appreciated and I am very grateful for everyone here for coming to listen to me”

Eamon Gilmore,
Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade

“One key is to face criticism with a constructive perspective. Take the example of the study made by the European Policy Centre in 2010. I think their input was very important. It gave us a chance to look at ourselves in the mirror, test ourselves, but it did create some feelings of discomfort within the EESC”

Staffan Nilsson,
European Economic and Social Committee

“I believe that the quality of the event was a testament to the leading role of the EPC among think-tanks in Brussels in contributing to the EU policymaking processes. The event provided an atmosphere of open debate for the large audience that was present”

Ahmet Davutoğlu,
Turkish Foreign Minister
