The central theme of the conference is innovation and entrepreneurship, which are recognized as major drivers of growth and sources of competitive advantage in all areas of public life - from the economy, through social spheres such as education and health, to culture, the arts and sports as professional activities and a way of spending leisure time. Innovation and entrepreneurship provide new ideas and solutions to the modern challenges faced by business, education, the environment. On the other hand, business and education have the mission of educating an innovative and entrepreneurial culture to facilitate the entry of new technologies into real life.


The Sixteenth International Scientific Conference of the International Business School has the ambition to become a platform for presenting innovative theories, products, and services; discussions on the issues of smart specialization policies and the development of science and education; promoting good practice and innovative methods of knowledge transfer.


Within the conference days, alongside the main conference panels, roundtables and discussion sessions will be organized to exchange ideas and opportunities for collaboration between science, education, and business.
