The European Union is experiencing upheaval on many fronts – security threats, acts of terror, unprecedented migration pressures, changing climate, and serious fiscal strain. The Viessmann European Research Centre is hosting a graduate student colloquium on May 5 and 6, 2016 to consider how these issues are converging and what future changes can be anticipated.
