The New Europe 100 is also a platform for dialogue and cooperation for all of the challengers - New Europe 100 innovators meets periodically in Budapest, Warsaw or Prague, as well as participate in events such as Brain Bar Budapest or Krynica Economic Forum. This allows for closer relations, but also cross-fertilization and improvement of their ideas on social initiatives, democratic solutions and business ventures.

New Europe 100 is organized by Res Publica together with Google and the Visegrad Fund, and in cooperation with the Financial Times and dozens of institutions from Central and Eastern Europe.
