The METREX Spring 2024 Conference will take place in Brussels over 15 and 16 May. It will coincide with activities for the Belgian Presidency of the Council of Europe.

At our Brussels conference we will open these three flows of thinking to our Members and beyond to then develop them over summer and report back at our Autumn Conference in Bucharest, October 2024. We will approach Members for their participation in these flows, which will appear online and/or live. We need Members’ input to make it work.
