The central theme of this year’s European Forum for New Ideas will be ‘Globalism, bilateralism, economic patriotism? Challenges for business.’
Debating on global challenges, experts will seek for answers to the following questions
-Does globalization has already reached its limits?
-Are we facing the back of nation-states?
-Will economic patriotism redefine the control of the free market?
-What is the future of free trade agreements – multilateral, bilateral, regional?
Among the challenges for the European Union, particular attention will be paid to:
-Landscape of Europe after elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany
-Brexit – as a chance for European unity or the threat of further disintegration?
-Social Europe versus Innovative Europe – could these trends be reconciled?
-European defense cooperation as a new impulse to the strengthening of European security and unity
Besides the most important trends in the business, such as digitization, robotization, sharing economy and ecology, panelists will discuss the challenges faced by companies, i.a.:
-Cyber security – how to ensure the safe operation of the company?
-Innovation 4.0 – how to invest in good ideas?
-Investing in a time of uncertainty. How to curb the changing reality?
-Smart cities – a beautiful idea or a real opportunity?
