Shape of Central Europe
“A special conference panel will be devoted to examples of innovative entrepreneurship in Citdex Central Europe .”
We would like to cordially invite you to the annual conference of the Aspen Institute Central Europe The Shape of (Central) Europe 2019, which will be held on 27 November in the Prague Crossroads in cooperation with the Economia media house.
Political, economic and social development
The aim of the conference is to provide an overview of the political, economic and social development of the Czech Republic in the context of Central Europe. Like last year, the discussion will be based on studies by Aspen Institute Central Europe expert groups, which in addition to analyzing the state of the Czech Republic in the monitored areas, will also include specific recommendations for improvement. Experts from the business, academic and non-profit sectors will join members of the government on the conference panels.
The Shape of (Central) Europe 2019 will focus in more detail on the links between the areas studied so far, specifically interconnecting three themes of Czech development:
➡ education – competitiveness
➡ security – innovation
➡ quality of life – regional differences
Of course, the results in all areas depend on the quality of governance and the functioning of the institutions on which the recommendations will be focused. A special conference panel will be devoted to examples of innovative entrepreneurship in Central Europe.
Just like last year, the conference will be preceded by regional debates. With the interconnected themes, we will once again head to the regions of the Czech Republic, and this year for the first time to other Central European countries. One of the debates already took place in Olomouc in May on the topic of quality of life.
