In October 2014, in Rome, RIAC and Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI) organized and held the first international seminar on analyzing Russia-Europe relations. Deputy ministers of foreign affairs, experts, former officials, and business representatives from both sides took part in the seminar. 

RIAC supported ISPI’s initiative to hold the second seminar in October 2017 in Rome to bring together Russian and European NGOs and business representatives. The second seminar “European Union and Russia Relations: What Lies Ahead” was focused on analyzing the prospects for Russia-Europe relations development in the context of inter-political changes following the elections in the majority of the European countries and the analysis of the political situation in Russia prior to the 2018 elections. 

Special attention was given to the U.S. politics and its influence on Russia-the EU relations, as well as the search of possible points of growth for the economic relations between Russia and the EU in the context of existing sanctions. 

Russia was represented by Andrey Kortunov, RIAC Director General, and RIAC members: Mikhail Margelov, Transneft Vice-President, Alexander Avdeyev, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Vatican, Vladimir Dmitriev, Vice-President of the Russian Federation Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and RIAC experts: Sergey Utkin, Timofey Bordachev, Sergey Kulik, and Vladimir Likhachev. 

In the closing remarks, Giancarlo Aragona, Scientific Advisor for ISPI, expressed confidence in further development of cooperation between the two institutions in order to strengthen Russia- the EU relations.
