Conference “Strengthening the Protection of Adults in the EU” – Brussels, 25 October 2023
On 25 October 2023, the Council of the Notariats of the European Union (CNUE) is co-organising with MEP Stelios Kympouropoulos a conference at the European Parliament on “Strengthening the Protection of Adults in the EU“.
This conference is being held in the light of the European Commission’s publication on 31 May of a legislative package on the protection of adults, which aims to strengthen their protection in a cross-border context. The event will provide an opportunity to bring together practitioners and discuss the improvements made in recent years as well as the challenges that lay ahead. A panel discussion will assess both the Commission’s legislative package and the protection of adults in a wider context.
The conference will take place in-person and via stream from 9am to 11am and will be followed by a buffet lunch. The preliminary programme is as follows:
