1st Academic Forum of EYP Cyprus
EUnergy: A Paradigm Shift
The 1st Academic Forum of EYP Cyprus will take place on 20th-25th July 2018, with CJOs training on 19th July, in Nicosia. This EYP event will gather participants from all over Europe under the theme EUnergy: A Paradigm Shift.
Development and research in the energy sector has been one of the cornerstones of the European Union’s strategy in recent years. Further integration and diversification in the energy sector as well as decarbonisation have been set as some of the EU’s top priorities as part of the Energy Union. With rapid advancements in renewable energy research, smart grids, and energy enterprises, bridging the gap between researchers and policy makers is as crucial as ever. A paradigm shift in policy design is necessary to align the EU’s objectives with actionable measures. The participants will examine the dynamics of the energy sector both within Cyprus and abroad, identifying realistic and measurable paths towards energy security within the EU.
