​The Pan-European Institute organises different events during the academic year. In 2012 PEI had its 25th Anniversary Seminar and organised a series of lectures: "Emerging trends in the Baltic Sea region". The seminar gathered together policy-makers, corporate decision-makers and representatives of the Academia of over 10 different countries and received a lot of positive feedback, as well as the Studia Generalia under the theme "Future of the Baltic Sea region", which was organised in 2013.
Spring 2014 brought together representatives of Finnish and Belarusian companies, when the Pan-European Institute hosted the IV Finland–Belarus Business Forum. In the beginning of the autumn term 2014–2015 PEI filled one of the largest auditoriums of Turku School of Economics with guests interested in taking part in a discussion on Russia and the future path of its economic policy in the Gaidar Readings conference.
