Is the European Green Deal an opportunity or a threat for the EaP countries?
How the European Green Deal affects the cooperation among the EaP countries? Are countries becoming more united because of the European Green Deal?

Panel 2. Strengthening energy security and nuclear safety: overcoming dependencies
How have the national energy policies of the EaP countries changed in the last year?
The EaP countries largely remain dependent on energy imports and fossil fuels. Do we see any plans or steps to overcome this? In particular, in the context of insecure supplies from Russia.
Is nuclear industry in the EU and the EaP countries prepared for sanctions against Russian nuclear fuel and possibly technology itself?
How does it fit into new energy security needs of the region?
Can the efforts within Eastern Partnership initiatives support bilateral or multilateral responses to the energy security threats in the region?
