Enrico Letta new president of the Jacques Delors Institute in Paris

We congratulate Mr Letta, former prime minister of Italy, on his appointment as President of our partner organisation.

Enrico Letta, former prime minister of Italy, has been appointed as President of our partner organisation, the Jacques Delors Institute in Paris. We congratulate Mr. Letta on his new role and are looking forward to the cooperation. 

Helmut K. Anheier, President of the Hertie School of Governance, sends his best wishes: “We are happy that Enrico Letta is taking over the Presidency of the Jacques Delors Institute in Paris. This will permanently strengthen and reinforce the already strong and cooperative ties between the Institute, Science Po and the Hertie School.“ 

The Hertie School of Governance and the Jacques Delors Institute in Paris jointly founded the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin in 2014. Enrico Letta replaces António Vitorino, also a former EU-Commissioner, who initiated the establishment of the institute at the request of Jacques Delors himself.
