New High Level Reflection Group interviews

Despite the COVID-19 crisis, the DG’s High Level Reflection Group has remained mobilised. The Strategic Transformation Support Unit took the opportunity presented by their most recent set of meetings to run a series of interviews with the group members. Following a first set of interviews, the unit has now published another four, to elaborate on some more of their major areas of focus. ​
