The EU-Russia Expert Network on Foreign Policy (EUREN) was incepted by the EU Delegation to the Russian Federation at the beginning of 2016 and ever since has grown into a trustful dialogue and a platform for regular meetings of experts from EU and Russia which feeds the official political dialogue.
EUREN is run by the EU Delegation to the Russian Federation in the framework of the "Public Diplomacy EU and Russia" Project and the Russian International Affairs Council.
For the time the EUREN held ten meetings and it published a series of EUREN Chronicles - reports from the meetings - while the publication of a report on the preliminary results is expected in early autumn 2018.
Looking beyond sanctions? Prospects for economic interaction between the EU and Russia.
Whereas at previous EUREN events participants from the EU and Russia critically assessed Moscow’s and Brussels’ respective policies in a given region or vis-à-vis a given international actor (the neighbourhood, Wider Middle East, USA), the discussions on China were more exploratory and focused on explaining to each other how China’s role and policies are perceived in Russia and the EU and what kind of relationship the EU and Russia seek to have with China.

Much of the debate about the political relationship between the EU, Russia and the US focused on expectations with regard to the new US administration. While participants from Russia, EU Member States and the US differed in their assessments of the new US president, they were united in their uncertainty about his future policies.
