European Parliament: Making the choice before the choice is made

 

The European Election Package supports companies in their successful positioning in Brussels

  

 

Forty years ago the Hungarian sculptor and professor Ernö Rubik invented the Magic Cube (“Rubik’s Cube”). An anniversary that is officially acknowledged by the President of the European Commission, Portugal’s José Manuel Barroso: “The Rubik´s Cube is the ultimate metaphor for bewildering complexity and triumphant intelligence, creativity and innovation.”                                                                     

The Magic Cube can serve also as a metaphor for the political process between Brussels, Strasbourg and European capitals. The mechanism interlocks, turned up, down, left or right – the result is often colourful.

The European Election in May 2014 is a starting point for a long-term change in political processes, to which companies should adjust in good time.

In consideration of these facts, there is a need for a focused approach towards the relevant decision-makers on a European level, participation in the professional discourse and involvement in the political decision making process. To support companies in their positioning in the face of the upcoming changes after the European Parliament elections, CAUSA has developed the European Election Package – so that the “European Magic Cube” can be twisted. 

Finding the right position among European institutions, stakeholders and competitors can be challenging. Against the backdrop of this year’s election and the appointment of a new European Commission, a review of one’s market positioning strategy constitutes a prerequisite for future success.

The European Election Package consists of a toolset that enables firms to assess their current position now already before the elections, so that a recommended course of action can be determined and with CAUSA’s help the most promising topics and mechanisms can be identified to ensure effective positioning after the elections.                          

We will gladly send you further information concerning the European Election Package, please write to berlin[at]causa-c.de
