The ‘Energy Security in a World of Disinformation’ Conference cohosted by the Ireland U.S. Alumni Association (IUSA) and European Network of Alumni Associations (ENAM) took place in Dublin on 26th and 27th of January 2023 in the Westbury Hotel, Dublin 2.

94 participants attended the conference with alumni from across Ireland, Europe and the United States. We were delighted to work with ENAM to welcome D.A.S. Elkon to the dinner with Ambassador Cronin. 

IUSA thanks the financial support of the U.S. Embassy in Dublin, without whom the project could not have been successful.
