PNL: The EPP Congress in Bucharest will bring together 2,000 delegates from 40 countries, including the Presidents of the European Commission and European Parliament and EPP state leaders




More than 2,000 delegates from over 40 countries, including the President of the European Commission, the President of the European Parliament, heads of state and government, European People’s Party leaders, and European Commissioners from the EPP political family, will meet next week in Bucharest, according to an announcement on Wednesday made by the National Liberal Party, co-host of the political event.

The European People’s Party (EPP) Congress will take place on 6 and 7 March at Romexpo.

“The EPP’s visit to Bucharest is a sign of solidarity of the whole European Union with Romania and the states in the vicinity of the war unleashed by Russia in Ukraine,” PNL said in a statement.

The EPP Congress will prepare the 6-9 June elections for the European Parliament, adopt the manifesto of the European People’s Party and elect the candidate at the head of the list for the European elections and, implicitly, the candidate for the European Commission presidency.

The main event of the Congress will be the nomination of the candidate to head the European Commission, namely Ursula von der Leyen, the current chief of the European executive, who is also the only candidate.

The meeting in Bucharest is hosted by the National Liberal Party in partnership with the European People’s Party.

Bucharest already hosted a congress of the European People’s Party in October 2012.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Parliament President Roberta Metsola and Romanian President Klaus Iohannis will be the leaders delivering the closing remarks at the European People’s Party Congress in Bucharest, where the EU’s largest political family will set out its strategy and election manifesto for the 6-9 June European Parliament elections and nominate their lead candidate for President of the European Commission.

The announcement was made earlier this month by the party’s leader, German Manfred Weber, who is also chairman of the EPP group in the European Parliament, during a discussion with Romanian journalists.

The election manifesto of PNL is also expected to be presented in the context of the EPP Congress in Bucharest.

The Congress will be inaugurated by EPP President Manfred Weber and PNL President Nicolae Ciucă, with all the heads of state and government of the EPP member parties who will be present in Bucharest delivering speeches.

Robert Lupițu, editor-in-chief of, to deliver an EU Affairs Journalism course as Visiting Scholar at the University of Florida



© Calea Europeană, a leading platform for European affairs reporting in Romania and Europe, is pleased to announce that Robert Lupițu, the Editor-in-Chief, has been invited to be a Visiting Scholar at the Center for European Studies of the University of Florida (UF), in the United States of America. In this capacity, Robert Lupițu will be teaching a course titled “EU Integration in Practice: Reporting on the European Union” between 26th of February and 1st of March 2024, at UF, in Gainesville.

The course, which will offered to students at the University of Florida, aims to provide practical and meaningful insights into the field of European Union reporting and journalism. Drawing on Robert’s experience in covering European affairs the course will explore key topics such as EU institutions, policymaking processes, current events, and journalistic best practices in reporting on the EU.

Still a young journalist in his early 30s, but with ten years of experience in the field, Robert’s career as a journalist is bound by major EU and NATO meetings coverage, including summits that have decided EU leadership, EU budget, sanctions on Russia or NATO’s biggest collective reinforcement since the end of the Cold War, while he is also the Romanian journalist that takes part, since 2018, at each edition of the Munich Security Conference.

I am honoured to have the opportunity to share my insights and experiences with the students at the University of Florida and I would like to thank the Center for European Studies and professor Amie Kreppel, director of UF Jean Monnet Center of Excellence, for inviting me. 2024 is a year with great resonance in Europe and in the US, with elections on both sides of the North Atlantic and a landmark in the history of Eastern Europe joining both EU and NATO, with Romania marking 20 years of NATO accession and 20 years since finalising EU accession negotiations. Reporting on the European Union is a way of life, because never in the history of the European continent, local, regional, national, and European matters have been inter-linked as in present times”, Robert Lupițu said.

The “EU Integration in Practice: Reporting on the European Union” course examines contemporary journalism in a European context. The class will explore the opportunities and challenges of covering political, economic, and social issues explicitly from a ‘European’ rather than a ‘local’ and ‘national’ perspective. Students in the course will discuss the role of journalism in the context of European integration and the media impact.

The Center of European Studies is housed within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

The University of Florida (UF) is a prestigious public research university located in Gainesville, Florida. Established in 1853, UF is one of the oldest universities in the state and is consistently ranked among the top public universities in the United States.
