This report summarizes the main topics and debate that emerged from the final conference of the project “EU60: Re-founding Europe. The Responsibility to Propose”, coordinated by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) with the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and in collaboration with the Centro Studi sul Federalismo (CSF). The project focussed on an analysis of future EU politico-institutional developments through a differentiated integration approach. Researchers from different European think tanks contributed to the project by drafting a number of policy reports and participating in the final conference together with experts, academics and representatives from Italian and European institutions. The conference was structured around two sessions, respectively tackling EU foreign and defence policy and economic governance. A roundtable debate on ways to operationalize the policy recommendations that emerged from the research project, and in particular on the launching of a differentiated integration process, followed with the active participation of invited authors and experts from different backgrounds and affiliations.
