The Nordic and Baltic states positioned along the Baltic Sea have seen spiralling energy prices and an increased risk to energy security. What can be done to secure long-term energy security and carbon neutrality? How can Baltic-Nordic cooperation foster faster action? And what role does research play in achieving these long-term goals?

The event will investigate cross-border cooperation, discussing how integration and interdependence of energy systems in the region can strengthen energy security while also achieving carbon neutrality. Being in the forefront of the ongoing energy price crisis perspectives from the Baltic States could teach valuable lessons to the rest of the Nordic Region.
