Once again: EU40 partners with the MEP Awards 2020!

It has now become a recurring honour for EU40: we are delighted, once again, to be partners of the MEP Awards, organized by the Parliament Magazine.

Often referred to as the EU Oscars, the MEP Awards take place annually at the historical and sumptuous Concert Noble in Brussels, just a stone’s throw away from the EU institutions. The awards bring together European Parliament deputies, members of the Commission and Council, and the wider EU bubble, in raising a glass to the dedication and commitment of our elected European deputies.

The MEP Awards were established to recognise deputies who have contributed significantly to the legislative, supervisory and budgetary role of the European Parliament through their parliamentary activities.  In choosing the recipients of the MEP awards, regard is given to the nominee’s achievements in the year immediately prior to receiving the award, as well as their past achievements and ongoing contribution to the European Project and their national constituencies.
