Print Friendly and PDF

Russia provides approximately a quarter of the natural gas consumed in the European Union; and most of this amount reaches the EU via pipelines through Ukraine. The Central and Eastern European region is even more highly dependent on Russian gas, around 80% for Hungary and almost 100% for Bulgaria. In the case of a supply disruption, or increased political tension, both the political and economic landscapes are altered.

 

The Energy Policy Research Group (EPRG), in cooperation with the Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy, CEU Business School, Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Department of Public Policy, is holding a high level roundtable discussion which brings important regional and national experts together. Participants will assess the technical and political-economic impact of gas dependency, new alternative transport routes and how recent EU-Russia-Ukraine political and economic maneuvering impacts the regional and national gas markets.
The purpose of this timely event is to engage both the CEU community and a public audience interested in the latest energy developments in the CEE region. The EPRG was established to facility energy dialogue within CEU and an international audience interested in energy issues.

  • "I have been recently nominated as the Regional IT Manager for West Africa at Unilever. My CEU Business School education has been a key differentiator during an otherwise very competitive recruitment process. I would like to thank all my great peers of the 2013-14 cohort and the wonderful faculty at the B-School for the valuable learning experience I had during my time in BP."
