Payer or Player? - Europe's Economy in a New World Order

Europe navigates a critical phase of geopolitical upheaval with a none foreseeable outcome. The continent is faced with the challenge of repositioning itself amidst partners in the West and emerging competitors in the global South. The research focus "Leadership and Innovation in Asia" of the LEIZ invites to a discussion event at which Dr. Matthias Niedenführ and Jan Berger will talk about the question of the positioning of the European economy in a new world order.

Jan Berger is the founder and managing director of the Corporate Foresight-Consultancy Themis Foresight. As a historian and Slavicist he brings a wealth of experience from his work across four continents in various industries including media, real estate, and finance.


With a decade dedicated to future research and the development of long-term corporate strategies, Berger is a trusted advisor for corporate boards and has authored two books on the future of work and numerous future studies. You can find their study and the associated scenarios on the Themis Foresight website
