EDD 2022 Programme

In 2022, the EDD will be a hybrid event. This means that it will take place both physically at the Brussels EXPO, as well as online.

The theme this year is ‘Global Gateway: building sustainable partnerships for a connected world’. The programme of 90+ sessions is once again being co-created with the EDD community.

Alongside the thematic sessions, EDD 2022 will have a series of Special Events focusing on key aspects of the Global Gateway. Through those high-level sessions, we will explore the geopolitical, financial and geographical aspects of this year’s theme. Our expert panels will discuss the Global Gateway flagships’ impact in Africa, Latin America, Central Asia, the Indo-Pacific and the EU Neighbourhood.
In addition to these Global Gateway sessions, there will also be additional events on key topics such as resilient health systems, and food security.

Modifications to the programme may continue to be made up until the event itself. Please continue to check the programme on the EDD webpage to keep up to date of any changes so that you can catch all your favourite sessions.

The EDD are an open and participatory forum, where each voice can be heard. Each year, the European Commission invites the EDD Community to contribute through a call for proposals to the programme by proposing activities and sessions. This creates an opportunity to be part of the discussion, to share know-how, thoughts and solutions regarding global challenges.
