CICEP Autumn Conference

Oslo Kongressenter Folkets Hus, Youngs gate 11. Wednesday 23 September 2015. The conference is free of charge but requires registration. Please register no later than 11 September. Limited seats!

The Centre for International Climate and Energy Policy celebrates its 4th year by arranging an autumn conference. We dedicate the day to discussions around our core research topics and interesting findings, such as: key players in energy and emissions, the relationship between EU and Norway on climate and energy policy and likely consequences for businesses, how international regimes are shaping up the global climate agenda, and expectations to the UN climate talks later this year.
