(Serbia) MODERATION Marijana Miljkovic, Editor Economics, Wiener Zeitung The so called Western Balkans are the six states in south-eastern Europe that are not yet members of the European Union. Around 17 million people live in this region, which impresses with its wonderful landscape and hospitality, among other things. Austria is one of the strongest and most important partners of the countries in the Western Balkans. This region, which has been waiting for accession to the European Union for over 15 years, is of enormous importance not only politically but also economically. The economic upswing and the opportunities for European companies to invest and develop are also decisive for the positive development of the region. What is the investment climate like in the Western Balkans? What testimony does the EU give the states in this area, what about innovation, entrepreneurial freedom and legal certainty? What do the regions of the Western Balkans offer potential investors?

With nearly 2 GW of installed PV capacity, and over 26 GW of realistic market potential, stellar solar growth is forecasted for the Balkan region in the near future. Among the various markets, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Slovenia show exceptionally high levels of untapped potential. Subsidy programs have begun to incentivize the installation of renewables in these markets. Moreover, as investors are increasingly drawn to the region, PPAs will play a central role in accelerating the number of PV projects. In this webinar, we are joined by Evangelos Gazis, the Market Lead for South Eastern Europe, and Panos Kefalas, Senior Research Associate at Aurora Research. Covering Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Slovenia, Evangelos and Panos will be giving an overview of: 🔹 Opportunities for RES market development 🔹 Subsidy-based and merchant deployment solar projects 🔹 The role of PPAs 🔹 Expected power price fluctuations ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 🔗 Links For an overview of upcoming events: http://www.solarplaza.com/events/​​​ Sign up for our newsletter for updates: https://bit.ly/2UwOGy1​​ 👍 FOLLOW US LinkedIn: https://nl.linkedin.com/company/solarplaza_2 Twitter: https://twitter.com/solarplaza

Un dialogue exceptionnel entre Thierry de MONTBRIAL, Ursula PLASSNIK, Enrico LETTA. La guerre d'Ukraine impose de nouvelles réalités géopolitiques et bouscule les Européens dans leurs certitudes. Elle affecte leur rapport à la sécurité, à leurs voisinages et met l'Union européenne au défi de redéfinir les tenants de la construction européenne. La "communauté politique européenne" proposée par Emmanuel Macron le 9 mai à Strasbourg vise à ancrer au plus près de l'Union les pays d'Europe orientale et balkanique. Charles Michel a quant à lui évoqué une "communauté géopolitique européenne". Les propositions relevant de l'intégration différenciée des nouveaux Etats-membres prennent ici tout leur sens. Quelles relations l'UE entend-elle bâtir avec les pays de l'Est et du Sud-Est européen, qui aspirent à la rejoindre ? - Enrico Letta, président de l'Institut Jacques Delors, ancien président du Conseil des ministres italien. - Thierry de Montbrial, président-fondateur de l'Institut français des relations internationales (Ifri, Paris). - Ursula Plassnik, ancienne ministre des Affaires étrangères d'Autriche.

In a Europe dominated by quick-fire crisis response, it is increasingly important that the voices of European citizens be heard. The EU’s channel for citizens to make suggestions for the future of Europe, the Conference on the Future of Europe, has recently concluded. We want to continue amplifying young citizens’ voices! Since January 2021, European Policies for You (EP4U) has implemented activities to raise awareness of EU policy-making and increase political participation of young European citizens. Building on university debates, high school talks, videos explainers engaging various MEPs, student paper competitions and social media campaigns, the Final Conference “Youth Perspectives on the Future of Europe” concluded the project by offering cross-cutting insights into four policy areas: climate and environment; employment and social policies; migration and asylum; and non-discrimination and protection of fundamental rights. The conference’s first panel was moderated by Tom Chevalier from Sciences Po and Michaela Dénešová from Comenius University in Bratislava. It featured the contribution of Myrthe Bovendeaard, Parliamentary Assistant to Kim van Sparrentak MEP. EP4U Student Contest Winners Stevan Đurić and Niccoló de Vita.

Panel discussion in cooperation with Bertelsmann Stiftung from 8th June 2022 with Dusan Reljić, SWP Ranka Miljenović, CEP Hannes Swoboda, wiiw and Branimir Jovanovic, wiiw Moderation: Richard Grieveson The Russian invasion of Ukraine poses risks for the Western Balkans, where memories of the war are still present and ethnic disputes have never been settled. The region is slowly cooling towards the EU after spending almost two decades in its waiting room. The announced accelerated EU accession of Ukraine, however justified and likely, threatens to increase frustration in the Western Balkans if the EU does not change its strategy towards the region. In our new study „The long way round: Lessons from EU-CEE for improving integration and development in the Western Balkans“, we make the case for a necessary change in the EU’s strategy towards the Western Balkans, as the current strategy has failed to deliver regional economic integration and development. Instead of doing more of the same, we ask whether and how the successful example of the former communist countries that joined the EU between 2004 and 2013 can be repeated in the Western Balkans. The main issues to be discussed on this event are: How can the EU promote regional economic integration and development in the Western Balkans? What should be the new EU strategy for the Western Balkans? Are there prospects for a new dynamic in their EU accession process? What impact could visible progress have on the region as a whole and on its territorial and constitutional disputes? What is at stake for Europe if there is no visible progress? Agenda: - Welcome by Hannes Swoboda, President of wiiw and IIP, former MEP - Presentation of new wiiw study "The long way round: Lessons from EU-CEE for improving integration and development in the Western Balkans" by Branimir Jovanovic, Lead author and wiiw Balkan Expert About wiiw: The Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw) is Vienna-based policy think tank with a focus on Central, East, and Southeast Europe.
