European Week 2011 - Power Up Without Blowing Up

General description

What is energy for you? Red bull? Oil derricks? For me it raises security issues.

Indeed, energy production, transport and supply generate technical and geopolitical concerns.

If all engineers had come to our course, there would probably not have been oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico!

So come to Paris to discover what is at stake when energy and security meet!

You will also be lucky to be introduced to the city of love by real crazy frenchies!!!!

Wine, cheese, Eiffel Tower, arrogance let?s overcome these widespread clichés!
