The sessions are oriented to energy and environment - climate change. An International Scientific Committee consisted of members from Greece, EU, BSEC and Central Asia countries will ensure the quality of the sessions. All sessions will be hosted at the “New Amfitheatro” of the Central Building of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.

The themes tackled by the conference include:

A. Energy Policy

- Energy supply and geopolitics
- Strategic energy planning
- Energy interconnections
- Transcontinental energy corridors
- Environmental, social and economic impacts of energy policies and usage
