The Third Executive Training Programme for Young Professionals: Visegrad Session, will take place at the Energy Charter Secretariat in Brussels on 14-16 May 2014.

Following on from the successful training sessions held at the Energy Charter Secretariat in May and October last year, this training will discuss the interplay of energy governance at the regional and global levels by focusing on the application of common rules and good governance practices.

This three-day long training will bring together energy professionals and expert-speakers from the energy industry, government, international organisations, academia and other spheres in order to share knowledge and exchange experience in tackling the most salient energy challenges we face today.

During three highly interactive days, participants will have the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge and profound expertise accumulated during 20+ years of the Energy Charter Process, and to assess opportunities of applying this knowledge in practice.

The Training revolves around two core components:

  • Five ‘Knowledge Streams’ dedicated to energy security and sustainability at both the global and regional levels. Central Europe’s Visegrad region and the Gulf (Middle East), as consumer and producer areas respectively, will be taken as comparative focal points.
  • An interactive simulation exercise, where participants will have the opportunity to negotiate on their own international energy treaty, modelling a real life situation in order to realise contractual arrangements between suppliers and consumers of energy.
