On September 5 - 7, 2023, ICI Bucharest participated in Poland in the 32nd edition of the Economic Forum organized annually by the Foundation Institute for Eastern Studies. The event is held annually and is one of the most important profile events in Central and Eastern Europe, attracting participants from over 60 countries for over 30 years.
This year's edition focused on the theme "New Values for the Old Continent – Europe on the Threshold of Change" with the participation of 4,000 guests from Europe, North America and Asia, from government delegates to business, science and culture representatives.
The topics discussed considered the consequences of recent events for Europe – the recent crises of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate and energy and food supply, highlighting Europe's vulnerability in sectors that are essential for its future. The forum also addressed the foundations on which the digital economy is built, such as cloud technology and new technologies in the field of energy.
A new edition of the Warsaw School of Economics and Economic Forum Report, a comprehensive study on the issues facing the Central and Eastern European region, was launched at this event.
ICI Bucharest's participation as a speaker and moderator in specialist panels highlighted the institute's expertise in digital technologies and associated European policies.
