On March 27 2009, the EUParl.net working conference took place in The Hague at the Montesquieu Institute. This institute is one of the initiators of the EUParl network.
The conference was a big success, and offered the opportunity to get to know a number of the partner institutes. Each present member delivered a brief background about their institute and related research programs.
The overall ambitions of the EUparl network were also discussed, with a primary focus on improving collaboration capacity. Also new members from Budapest and Bratislava were accepted into the network and other institutes have shown interest.
