How we work.

How we work

TPN’s role is to develop ambitious ideas and policy recommendations that are also politically feasible. This work is driven by highly effective collaborations between its political, business, and institutional participants in a variety of formats.

Transatlantic Week.

Transatlantic Week brings together a critical mass of legislators, US Administration, and EU institution officials, as well as representatives from business, academic, civil society, and trade association communities from both sides of the Atlantic. The annual multi-day conference looks at key issues in US-EU cooperation. In addition to developing practical recommendations for near-term action and responses to policy challenges, Transatlantic Week also aims to raise the profile of the Transatlantic Partnership and its potential in managing key challenges more effectively through joint action.

Outreach roundtables.

Outreach roundtables are informal, high-level discussions that enable TPN to make practical recommendations for improving transatlantic cooperation in a number of key areas. These moderated meetings are held in-person in Brussels and Washington DC and virtually via Zoom and generate balanced conclusions reflecting the views of participants on both sides of the Atlantic, including those working closely with the European and American administrations.managing key challenges more effectively through joint action.

Political and educational exchanges.

Members of the United States Congress and of the European Parliament regularly exchange visits so as to encourage a common understanding of the themes currently dominating the transatlantic relationship. Through time, TPN-organised meetings have forged friendships and broadened support for the Network’s goals, also facilitating staff exchanges organised by cooperating institutions.
