The Young Professionals Network reaches 1 000 followers

Schuttelaar & Partners launched the Young Professionals Network on 15 October 2019. A Brussels-based network that aims at supporting young professionals, providing them with networking and learning opportunities through interactive events. 

A dynamic network 

The network focuses on sustainable agriculture, circular economy, and energy transition – topics on which Schuttelaar & Partners can share its expertise and know-how. Through the network, Schuttelaar & Partners renews its commitment to supporting young professionals, inside and outside its organization. It allows us to connect the new generations with decision-makers, and lead the conversation with key stakeholders of the EU bubble.  

The Young Professionals network now gathers over 1 000 followers on LinkedIn – and it continues to grow!  

Since the beginning of the year, the network has already held 4 events, each focusing on a hot topic in European politics.  

  • The True Cost of Energyon 23 March 2022: focusing on rising energy prices, this webinar gathered a diverse panel discussion open by Brendan Devlin, Strategy and Foresight Counsellor at the EU Commission Directorate-General for Energy. You can (re)watch the event below.  


  • A Spring Afterwork on Place du Luxembourg on 21 April 2022:  located in front of the European Parliament, the Place du Luxembourg is the heart of the EU bubble. Members of the network were able to meet in person for the first time in 2 years.
