Estonian Atlantic Treaty Association would like to invite you to the 8th annual “NATO-EU Roundtable 2020” which will take place from the 2nd until the 4th of April in Tallinn at Park Inn by Radisson Meriton Hotel (address Toompuiestee 27 10149 Tallinn), in Saka Cliff Manor and in Narva Museum in Eastern Estonia. The event is organised in cooperation with the NATO Headquarters, Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Estonian Ministry of Defence, Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the German Atlantic Association.

In 2020, the roundtable will focus on the NATO-EU political and military cooperation, particularly regarding cyber threats and defence, the Arctic and future warfare. The event will bring together around 100 young professionals and students who will have the possibility to discuss the security challenges of NATO and the EU. The first day will predominantly feature panel discussions from the experts and decision-makers in the field such as Mr. Urmas Paet (Member of the European Parliament), Mr. Sami Seppänen (CEO at Elisa Estonia), Col. Jaak Tarien (Director of NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence of Excellence) and many others. The second and third day in Saka Cliff Manor will see around 60 students themselves engage in group works, discussions and the North Atlantic Council (NAC) simulation. The overall aim of the event is to increase the knowledge of young people about foreign and security policies, as well as NATO-EU cooperation.

EATA is looking forward to the active participation of young professionals and students (Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral level) in the field of defence and security and international relations. EATA will cover accommodation expenses for the participants, transport between Tallinn-Saka Cliff Manor and Narva-Tallinn, as well as meals and materials during the event. A contribution fee of €50 is expected from each participant towards the organisation of NATO-EU Roundtable 2020. Please note that travel expenses to Estonia and back must be covered by each selected participant him/herself.
