    As part their 10 year anniversary celebrations, the London-based market-oriented think tank, the Stockholm Network, held their first ever pan-European think tank awards ceremony on 5th December 2007 at the National Liberal Club in London.

    In such a hotly contested field, the most influential think tanks from across Europe descended upon London, along with British and European politicians, journalists and policy makers. Each award was presented by luminaries from across the political landscape, with Boyden Gray, the US Ambassador to the EU, delivering the key note speech.

    In the 10 years since its inception, the Stockholm Network has acted as the umbrella organisation for market-oriented individuals and policy institutes in Europe. During this time the number of think tanks in the network has expanded exponentially, now reaching 130 member think tanks.
