EU-Russia Experts Network is a new cooperation initiative, launched in 2016, under the Partnership Instrument. It is an informal professional network of foreign policy analysts and think tanks from EU and Russia. EU-Russia Experts Network meets on a quarterly basis to discuss key foreign policy issues with the aim of coming up with practical recommendations for a new modus operandi for EU-Russia relations.
