Abstract "On 25th-27th October 2007, after more than three years of CONNEX ('Connecting Excellence on European Governance'), Research Group 4, working on 'Civil society and interest representation in EU-Governance' and Research Group 5, working on 'Social capital as catalyst of civic engagement and quality of governance' met in Piran, Slovenia for a Wrapping-up Conference (WUC). The main aim of the conference was to bring together the state of the art knowledge of both Research Groups. The idea was to present new insights gained during CONNEX, to deduct new research questions for the last months of CONNEX, as well as for continued research after CONNEX, thus assuring sustainability. The conference focused on three aspects of civil society and European governance and a number of cross-cutting questions were discussed related to biased representation (Session I), participatory engineering (Session II) and civil society and democracy in the EU (Session III)."
