  • Encourage the exchange of new ideas at the highest level and suggest solutions on how to tackle the greatest threats and challenges of our time
  • Enhance dialogue between senior figures from business, politics, the media and academia in France, Germany and the UK
  • Strengthen the relationships between “the Three” and with other European and international partners outside of official communication channels
  • Generate strategic thinking and develop proposals for strengthening Europe as a global actor, including post-Brexit Britain
