euenergyweek
Meet the PHOTORAMA project, which has developed circular solutions to solar panel recycling: https://interactive.eusew.eu/awards/innovation/photorama Bridging manufacturing and recycling industries yields promising results: recycling 1 200 tonnes of photovoltaic (PV) panels could save over 3 800 tonnes of CO2 equivalent, or as much greenhouse gas as emitted by almost a thousand cars driven for a year. Such a solution could have a powerful impact, given the millions of tonnes of PV waste in the pipeline. PHOTORAMA is one of three finalists shortlisted for the European Sustainable Energy Awards 2024 in the Innovation category: https://interactive.eusew.eu/awards#innovation. The award recognises outstanding ongoing or recently completed EU-funded projects that show an original and innovative path towards the clean energy transition.

In her speech, Andreja Metelko-Zgombić, State Secretary for Europe in the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Republic of Croatia, focuses on Croatia’s perspective on the forthcoming EU enlargement process, the institutional changes required to prepare the EU for enlargement, and the range of reforms to be implemented by the Western Balkan countries before accession, including the resolution of historical disputes. She also addresses the proposal of a so-called confidence clause for the region in the accession treaties, which would prevent a newly joined Member State from blocking the accession of another candidate country. Finally, she provides an assessment, ten years on, of how both Croatia and the EU have benefitted from the 2013 enlargement. About the Speaker: Andreja Metelko-Zgombić is the State Secretary for Europe at the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Republic of Croatia and holds a law degree. Prior to assuming this position in 2017, she held several prominent posts at the Ministry, including Chief Legal Adviser and Assistant Minister for European Law, International Law and Consular Affairs.

The Secretary General reaffirmed the region’s strategic importance to NATO and the Alliance’s steadfast commitment to safeguard peace and stability. He highlighted that KFOR continues to implement its UN mandate to provide a safe and secure environment for all communities living in Kosovo.

Western Balkans as a Region of the Future Sunday, September 24th 2023 Salzburg Congress, Europasaal KEYNOTE Branimir Jovanović Economist, Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies wiiw, North Macedonia PANEL Gerd Bommer, Regional Manager Southeast Europe, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Chamber of Commerce Austria Martin Kocher, Minister for Economy and Labour, Austria Getoar Mjeku, Vice Minister for Economy, Kosovo Obrad Tadic, CEO Smart Energy Investment, Serbia Zijad Nišić , Mayor of Brčko District, Bosnia and Herzegowina Nikola Jovanovic, Direktor Center for Local Government (CLS – Centar za Lokalnu Samoupravu) Belgrade MODERATION Franz Schausberger Chairman of the IRE Not least because of the terrible war in Ukraine and the granting of EU candidate status to Ukraine and Moldova, there seems to have been more movement again in the accession process of the states of the Western Balkans. Bosnia-Herzegovina became a candidate country, Serbia passed reforms in the field of justice and positioned itself against the war against Ukraine. Kosovo will get the long desired visaliberalization next year. It is hoped that accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania can finally begin. The geopolitical situation has also shown the skeptical EU member states that the Western Balkans are indispensable for Europe from both a geopolitical and economic point of view and must not be left to the non-European powers. That is why there is an increasing willingness to find pragmatic solutions. There are many opportunities for companies in the Western Balkans to invest in the Western Balkans, especially in the areas of water, energy, infrastructure and transport. The great interest of local companies in these future markets in the immediate vicinity is manifested in the constantly increasing number of direct investments. The EU is helping to implement the necessary, far-reaching political and economic reforms through a wide variety of funding programs. The European Union supports the Western Balkan countries in building a modern, climate-neutral and resource-efficient economy. In this panel, representatives from the various Western Balkan countries will discuss the opportunities for the Western Balkans to become an important economic region of the future.

The EU, Enlargement, and the Western Balkans: Time to Recalibrate?
20 Sep 2023
IIEA
In his remarks, Dr Bassuener focuses on the EU’s relationship with the Western Balkans in advance of the country reports which will be published in October 2023. Dr Bassuener’s contention is that, writ broadly, the political elites of the region have demonstrated that they do not want to do the heavy lifting regarding EU accession. Yet, according to Dr Bassuener, the EU’s interest in the region remains its desire to demonstrate its transformative power and geopolitical potency. Overall, in his discussion, Dr Bassuener argues that enlargement should not be abandoned, but rather there should be a reassessment of who the primary EU partners need to be – the citizens of the region. About the Speaker: Kurt Bassuener is a Co-Founder and Senior Associate of the Democratization Policy Council, a Berlin-based think-tank established in 2005. He received his PhD in 2021 from the University of St. Andrews’ Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence. Dr Bassuener is co-author and research director for the Diplomat’s Handbook for Democracy Development Support. Prior to studying at St. Andrews, he lived for 11 years in Sarajevo, starting in 2005 as a strategist for then-High Representative, Paddy Ashdown. He was a political and campaign analyst for the OSCE-ODIHR election observation mission in Ukraine in 2004–2005, and previously conducted analysis-based advocacy in Washington D.C. for the Balkan Institute, the Balkan Action Council, the U.S. Institute of Peace, and the International Rescue Committee. Recorded on the 20th of September 2023

Un nouveau sommet UE-Balkans occidentaux se tient le 6 décembre à Tirana. Alors que Jean-Claude Juncker avait fermé la porte à tout élargissement sous son mandat, la guerre en Ukraine et sa candidature ont remis le sujet de l’élargissement à l’agenda européen alors que les processus d’adhésions des pays balkaniques s’enlisaient depuis plusieurs années. Où en sont l’Albanie, la Macédoine du Nord, le Monténégro, la Serbie, la Bosnie-Herzégovine et le Kosovo dans leur relation avec l’UE ? Quel sentiment inspire l’Union dans la région ? A quelle échéance une perspective d’adhésion est-elle réaliste ? Ces questions seront abordées par Lukas Macek, chercheur associé à l’Institut Jacques Delors et directeur du campus de Dijon de SciencesPo. M.

Find here the recording of the session Invest in the Regions of the western Balkans? 25th October 2022 | Salzburg Congress OPENING and WELCOME Josef Schöchl, Chairman of the EU-Committee of the Salzburg State Parliament, Member of the IRE board (Austria) KEY NOTE Helga Berger, Member of the European Court of Auditors, Chamber II Growth, Cohesion and Integration (Austria) PANEL Mentor Arifaj, Deputy Minister for Industry, Enterprises and Trade (Kosovo) Kenan Dedić, Technical Director, HEEZ Aluminium, Brćko (Bosnia-Herzegowina) Max Schausberger, Managing Director Elevator Ventures (Austria) Aleksandar Simurdić, Director of the European Affairs Funds of the Autonomous Province Vojvodina (Serbia) Markus Strasser-Stöckl, Owner and Manager of NetQM Tech Company in Austria and Bosnia-Herzegowina Jelena Tadić, PPP Investment Ltd. (Serbia) MODERATION Marijana Miljkovic, Editor Economics, Wiener Zeitung The so called Western Balkans are the six states in south-eastern Europe that are not yet members of the European Union. Around 17 million people live in this region, which impresses with its wonderful landscape and hospitality, among other things. Austria is one of the strongest and most important partners of the countries in the Western Balkans. This region, which has been waiting for accession to the European Union for over 15 years, is of enormous importance not only politically but also economically. The economic upswing and the opportunities for European companies to invest and develop are also decisive for the positive development of the region. What is the investment climate like in the Western Balkans? What testimony does the EU give the states in this area, what about innovation, entrepreneurial freedom and legal certainty? What do the regions of the Western Balkans offer potential investors?

Among the various markets, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Slovenia show exceptionally high levels of untapped potential. Subsidy programs have begun to incentivize the installation of renewables in these markets. Moreover, as investors are increasingly drawn to the region, PPAs will play a central role in accelerating the number of PV projects.

Elle affecte leur rapport à la sécurité, à leurs voisinages et met l'Union européenne au défi de redéfinir les tenants de la construction européenne. La communauté politique européenne proposée par Emmanuel Macron le 9 mai à Strasbourg vise à ancrer au plus près de l'Union les pays d'Europe orientale et balkanique. Charles Michel a quant à lui évoqué une communauté géopolitique européenne. Les propositions relevant de l'intégration différenciée des nouveaux Etats-membres prennent ici tout leur sens.

In a Europe dominated by quick-fire crisis response, it is increasingly important that the voices of European citizens be heard. The EU’s channel for citizens to make suggestions for the future of Europe, the Conference on the Future of Europe, has recently concluded. We want to continue amplifying young citizens’ voices! Since January 2021, European Policies for You (EP4U) has implemented activities to raise awareness of EU policy-making and increase political participation of young European citizens. Building on university debates, high school talks, videos explainers engaging various MEPs, student paper competitions and social media campaigns, the Final Conference “Youth Perspectives on the Future of Europe” concluded the project by offering cross-cutting insights into four policy areas: climate and environment; employment and social policies; migration and asylum; and non-discrimination and protection of fundamental rights. The conference’s first panel was moderated by Tom Chevalier from Sciences Po and Michaela Dénešová from Comenius University in Bratislava. It featured the contribution of Myrthe Bovendeaard, Parliamentary Assistant to Kim van Sparrentak MEP. EP4U Student Contest Winners Stevan Đurić and Niccoló de Vita.

The Vienna Institute...
Panel discussion in cooperation with Bertelsmann Stiftung from 8th June 2022 with Dusan Reljić, SWP Ranka Miljenović, CEP Hannes Swoboda, wiiw and Branimir Jovanovic, wiiw Moderation: Richard Grieveson The Russian invasion of Ukraine poses risks for the Western Balkans, where memories of the war are still present and ethnic disputes have never been settled. The region is slowly cooling towards the EU after spending almost two decades in its waiting room. The announced accelerated EU accession of Ukraine, however justified and likely, threatens to increase frustration in the Western Balkans if the EU does not change its strategy towards the region. In our new study „The long way round: Lessons from EU-CEE for improving integration and development in the Western Balkans“, we make the case for a necessary change in the EU’s strategy towards the Western Balkans, as the current strategy has failed to deliver regional economic integration and development. Instead of doing more of the same, we ask whether and how the successful example of the former communist countries that joined the EU between 2004 and 2013 can be repeated in the Western Balkans. The main issues to be discussed on this event are: How can the EU promote regional economic integration and development in the Western Balkans? What should be the new EU strategy for the Western Balkans? Are there prospects for a new dynamic in their EU accession process? What impact could visible progress have on the region as a whole and on its territorial and constitutional disputes? What is at stake for Europe if there is no visible progress? Agenda: - Welcome by Hannes Swoboda, President of wiiw and IIP, former MEP - Presentation of new wiiw study The long way round: Lessons from EU-CEE for improving integration and development in the Western Balkans by Branimir Jovanovic, Lead author and wiiw Balkan Expert About wiiw: The Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw) is Vienna-based policy think tank with a focus on Central, East, and Southeast Europe.

‘Governments that are serious about access to vaccines need to approve the TRIPS waiver’ Ramaphosa
‘Governments that are serious about access to vaccines need to approve the TRIPS waiver’ Ramaphosa
18 Feb 2022
EU Reporter
In the margins of the European Union-African Union Summit, WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced the first six countries that will receive the technology needed for the production of mRNA vaccines on the African continent: Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia. The EU is the main contributor to this initiative. As welcome as this initiative is, African leaders continue to call for the waiving of intellectual property rights (IP), the so-called TRIPS* waiver. “We cannot continue being consumers of medical countermeasures for disease produced at high prices that are not affordable to our continent,” President of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa said, who has led Africa’s response to the pandemic. “Governments that are really serious about ensuring that the world has access to vaccines should ensure that we approve the TRIPS waiver.” Ramaphosa accused others of hiding behind intellectual property to protect the profits of companies rather than protecting the lives of millions. However, the EU has sent over 11 billion vaccines to Africa (as a whole) and an estimated 9 billion have been administered, there appears to be other barriers to the distribution and administration of the vaccines. “I think the emphasis has to be on technology transfer,” countered European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. “The goal is really to make sure that the technology is transferred and dismantled and shown in full scope. And for that, we think that compulsory licensing with a deep cut in profits might be a bridge to get there.” However, von der Leyen pointed out that IP was not the only issue.

Safe skies: NATO Air Policing – Slovenia and Western Balkans

NATO
Across Europe, NATO fighter jets are on duty around the clock, ready to scramble in case of suspicious or unannounced flights near the airspace of our Allies. NATO calls this activity Air Policing, which has been an integral part of NATO Integrated Air and Missile Defence for 60 years. In Slovenia and the Western Balkans, several Allies – including NATO’s newest member countries 🇲🇪Montenegro and 🇲🇰North Macedonia – don’t have fighter jets capable of intercepting unsafe air traffic. To secure the airspace over these countries, other NATO Allies take turns leading air policing missions. In 🇸🇮Slovenia, the 🇮🇹Italian and 🇭🇺Hungarian Air Forces share responsibility, while in 🇲🇪Montenegro and 🇦🇱Albania, it’s the 🇮🇹Italian and 🇬🇷Greek Air Forces. In November 2021, the Greek Air Force assumed responsibility for safeguarding North Macedonia’s airspace under the NATO air policing mission umbrella. Footage includes shots of Italian Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons, Greek Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons and Hungarian Air Force JAS-39 Gripens. In this series, we explore NATO’s five special air policing arrangements to ensure the integrity of NATO’s airspace and the defence of our almost one billion citizens.

Episode with Jakuta Imširović on the challenge of a just transition in a Balkan city
19 Nov 2021
Energy Cities
The city of Zenica, a coal and steel producer, lies right in the center of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Jakuta talks us through the different projects of the local government to increase efficiency, including Toplana Zenica plant. She proudly presents the city's ambitions, but she also mentions the issues regarding the lack of knowledge around new energy practices at the local and national political level and the sometimes difficult role of the city. Join us in the Western Balkans and let’s have a look into the culture shift underway in Zenica to transform the city into a more energy efficient, healthy and just place. This episode was recorded via internet. It is part of “City Stories” which is brought to you by the EU project mPower. mPower explores how cities and citizens can manage the energy transition together – in a fair, clean and democratic way. Participation can happen at various stages: from involving citizens, local NGOs or businesses in the policy design to any stage of the energy value chain: for example as shareholders or even prosumers. The mPower project gets funding from the European Horizon 2020 programme.

The dynamics of the EU expansion also suffered from the corona pandemic. The EU has endeavored - albeit with considerable delays - to support the countries in the Western Balkans mainly with vaccine procurement. However, some non-European countries were faster in some areas. The subject of energy security is likely to continue to play a decisive role in the economy. If the EU accession process does not advance faster for the Western Balkans, the six countries in the region will soon be looking for alternatives. North Macedonia and as well Albania are badly affected by the Bulgarian veto on the way to EU accession. In some western EU countries there is still a clear skepticism about EU enlargement. More than ever, the EU accession process for the Western Balkans will be in their own hands. If there is no progress in this regard, the already ailing enlargement process will probably move even further afield. Representatives of the EU, several Foreign and European ministers as well as prominent representatives of the Western Balkans will address the question of whether the enlargement process will end in a dead end after the corona crisis has subsided or whether there will be a more free journey towards enlargement.
