Background

The PROMITHEAS Conference started as an activity of a FP6 funded project and has developed as an annual Conference for scientists and researchers working in energy and climate change policy issues. The 1st PROMITHEAS Conference titled “Energy Investments and Trade Opportunities” in 2008 was a two-day event focused on political and scientific topics

The PROMITHEAS Conferences titled “Energy and Climate Change” that followed were also two-day events, but were dedicated exclusively on research issues. All events are hosted by the oldest university of Greece, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA); organized by the Energy Policy and Development Centre (KEPA) of the NKUA, coordinator of the PROMITHEAS Network and set under the auspices of the Black Sea.
