Key-Visual with "Toolbox"

Join us to explore our newly developed Think Tank Toolbox – a learning resource designed to share insights from think tank research, good practices, tips, and new methods for think tank work. The Toolbox will provide up-to-date knowledge developed by experienced think tankers from across Europe. It was created by the Think Tank Lab, run jointly by DGAP and MERICS.

This event will be an opportunity for participants to take a virtual tour of the Toolbox and explore its six key themes. You will have the chance to attend interactive sessions guided by experts from the respective fields, where you can dive deeper into some of the topics featured in the Toolbox.
