*The Info Point organises conferences on European external cooperation. Their aim is to tie in with topical events (visit to Brussels by a well-known figure in the field, International Days) by organising events that will engage our partners in development and stimulate debate and different points of view. The conferences are aimed both at the general public, the development community and the staff of the European institutions. Interaction and exchange are key objectives of these sessions.
