We are delighted to invite you to our panel discussion “Nord Stream 2 and the Future of the European Energy Security”.

The pipeline project Nord Stream 2 represents the most politically contentious energy infrastructure project in the EU. While Nord Stream 2 receives political support from Germany, some countries have been calling for consideration of the envisaged pipeline as a “geopolitical risk”. Is Nord Stream 2 dividing Europe or does it only uncover the fundamental differences towards provision of energy security among the Member States?

Together with our guests we would like to discuss the future of the European energy security and stipulate a debate on the ways of improving the efficiency of the common EU response in energy. Their thoughts and ideas will share
