The Conference Centre

The Brussels European Forum will take place at the conference facilities of the European Center La Foresta in Vaalbeek. A medieval monastery picturesquely situated in the landscape close to Leuven and Brussels, the Center offers an ideal setting for both the intensive committee work of the forum and the intercultural dialogue between participants from diverse countries.
