16th European Union Info-day: "Relations Between Russia and EU Today: Temporary Difficulties or Protracted Crisis?"
The 16th EU Info day was held on February 25, 2014 in St.Petersburg. The main topics for discussion were the relations between Russia and European Union today.
You can watch the video of the meeting here (in Russian).
Six times a year in St. Petersburg the Centre of European Studies - EU Centre holds the EU Info-days organized in cooperation with the press club 'Green Lamp' (in Russian - 'Зеленая лампа'; transliteration - 'Zelenaya lampa'). The idea laying behind the Info-days is to regularly update the general public and, especially, journalists on the current situation in the EU and the state of affairs in the relations between the Union and Russia. In order to provide the information on the institutional and political reforms in the EU, launching of the new EU projects and programs, the EU-Russia summits etc, the Info-days take the form of a briefing for journalists, businessmen and NGOs.

Following the good example set by the ENERPO students, our MARCA students have just published the first issue of the EUSP MARCA journal. It is planned that from September 2013 a similar project will be launched by IMARES students.
We are pleased to present the ENERPO journal produced by the EUSP international students. The goal of ENERPO Journal is to bring exposure to the ENERPO program and shed light on the latest developments in the oil, gas, and renewables industries in a way befitting both expert and casual readership. Contributing authors are primarily students and faculty with the occasional outside expert writer.
Anthony Cruitt (IMARES, USA), who traveled to Brussels as a participant in the 2013 Successor Generation Program held at NATO HQ from 13 to 16 March 2013, shared some of his takeaways from this event.

On 26 June 2013 EUSP is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its international programs which started with then IMARS (no "E" for the word "Eurasian" yet) in 1998. It is easy to call these programs the oldest full-fledged international Masters programs in Russia as they are still the only ones there are. But this does not make the planned celebration event less important. As usual, we will be sailing a double-decker on the Neva from 11pm to 2am with food, drinks, a DJ and more on board. It will be preceded by an evening of jazz complemented by short speeches etc in JFC club in Shpalernaya. The event is traditionally organized jointly by the International Office and the PNiS Department which is for the first time throwing a study-end celebration for their two-year Russian MA students in Political Science and Sociology. An important part of the event is that students will meet some alumni who will share their career building experiences.
