Working with industry

Alongside leading academics, members of the CEAS work with key global organisations, actively participating and contributing to international conferences for both research and consultancy. These organisations include:

  • The Department for International Development
  • The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development
  • The World Bank
  • The United Nations (UN)
  • The International Monetary Fund (IMF)
  • The European Commission
  • Burren Energy
  • The Regional Chamber of Commerce in Katowice

Some of the flagship events that the CEAS led were a series of conferences on 'Caspian Region: Present and Future' in 2003, which attracted significant industry participation. The themes of local content, sustainable development and social issues and renewable energy were selected to spark discussion between industry experts, government and academia. Industry experts from Amec Upstream Oil and Gas, the British Gas (BG) Group, Chevron Texaco, Petroleum Finance Company (PFC) Energy, Shell Exploration and Production International and Statoil debated these issues with speakers from a range of interested parties that included Cambridge Energy Research Associates, Fitch Ratings, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Human Rights Watch, as well as government and academic speakers.

Similarly, in June 2005, the CEAS hosted the Hydrocarbon Wealth conference, with private sector speakers from Burren Energy, Foster Wheeler Energy, Shell Exploration and Production International, British Petroleum Gas and Power and Wood Mackenzie. Also in attendance were the Ambassadors of Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan and experts from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the World Bank and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, as well as several distinguished academics.
