Welcome to ecpa2.0

The leading platform dedicated
to young public affairs professionals in Brussels


The European Centre for Public Affairs 2.0 (ecpa2.0) is a forum for young professionals to meet, discuss topics of mutual interest and share best practices in the evolving landscape of EU public affairs.  The platform was created in 2008 by several young public affairs professionals who wanted to exchange ideas and brainstorm about future developments and challenges in EU affairs. The aim of ecpa2.0 is to serve as a space for discussion on the public affairs practice in the European Union and how this can benefit from the ideas of young professionals. 

At ecpa2.0 we want to:

  • Discuss and generate debate on current issues relevant to EU public affairs

  • Bring new ideas into the debate on EU public affairs

  • Contribute to the professional development of young public affairs practitioners

  • Create a series of collaborative documents on policy issues

  • Share best practices on lobbying

  • Contribute to a dynamic and mutual exchange with other stakeholders and partners organisations


ecpa2.0 is open to every young professional who wants to be involved in the EU affairs environment, develop her/his network of contacts and contribute to the general debate on public affairs and lobbying. 

In order to attend ecpa2.0 events and activities, young professionals will need to become a member of the organisation.
