EU Energy Policy

Future challenges and the European Green Deal

6 - 10 July 2020 / Bruges & Brussels, Belgium

About the course

After four successful editions of the two-week executive training course on the “Energy Union”, for 2020 we have developed a new one-week programme which will give participants a thorough understanding of EU energy policies and governance (including the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package), affected also by international climate change concerns.

The course will look at the future outlook for the Energy Union and will cover recent developments brought in by the new European Commission.

By the end of the course, participants will have a full understanding of the different aspects to take into consideration when approaching the topic of energy and will possess the tools to be able to grasp and address the complex challenges ahead.

The programme is the result of a complementary collaboration between the College of Europe and InnoEnergy, which brings together academic excellence and innovation.
