On October 18th we welcomed Martin Selmayr, Head of Representation of the European Commission in Austria, at IHS where he held the annual Heinrich Neisser Lecture. His speech dealt with the resilience and future-proofness of Europe's Economic and Monetary Union. After the welcome addresses by Klaus Neusser, Scientific Director IHS and Franz Fischler, President IHS, he gave an insightful presentation, followed by a lively debate which was moderated by IHS senior researcher Katrin Auel.
We are particularly pleased that the interest in the event was very high and the lecture hall was full of high-ranking guests. A recording of this year's Heinrich Neisser Lecture will be available online shortly. You can find a few selected pictures of the event below.
