We launched a new research project at Corvinus University of Budapest about the relationship between the fourth industrial revolution and the educational system. The aim of the research is to support an educational reform in order to mitigate or eliminate the harmful effects of the technological breakthrough to the citizens. Firstly, we asked some of our excellent students from China to write their educational experiences. The paper can be read below at our homepage.

ESCA Hungary and ESCA Poland
OPEN TO Academics and Practitioners DATE24 – 25 September 2010, CET ONLINE GOALThe technological and business environment is on the crossroads at secular level. The recent surge of space industry, the robotization and the automation will change the whole society and economy including the business models in a short term. The new technologies are supposed to change the place and the timeframe of the production, the political and the economic landscape, the geopolitical framework of the world. What is the European answer for this transformation? How will the European societies adjust to the new environment? What kind of policy measures can support the inevitable changes and how can the pains coming from the adjustment process be mitigated?The goal of the conference is to contribute to the new answers at European level. We are deeply convinced that the response can only be found by engaged discussions among professionals. Society and economy form a rounded whole, the academic life has to maintain the permeability of its borders as well. That is why we would like to open our discussion for every professional including engineers, economists, representatives / researchers of liberal arts, academic agents and entrepreneurs too. Our common conviction that the European recovery heavily depends on the harmonization of the economic policy making, new technologies and business models.

Contrary to the usual way of thinking about the Chinese opening-up in the economic literature, our standpoint is that the main reason of every step forward in its development is determined by geopolitics and not economic doctrines. The geopolitical transition can be characterized by the shift from an old world order to a new one. From a world of which military conflict is an inherent part and economic and social development cannot be peaceful to a world where the preservation of peace and development coincides. The framework of the new world order is globalization and the aim of Chinese economic policy to catch-up to globalization.

The question of monetary integration was part of discussions on European integration from the beginning, in Hungary. That applied to Euro as well, and there was no question that it is part of our integration project. We have different waves of discussions, but there was an overwhelming support of the project from great number of the experts. The discussions were professional, less politicized and divided compared to Poland or Czech Republic, and several high quality studies were published on the issue. The discussions intensified again last year and early this year and several studies and articles were published.

I warmly welcome the initiative of the Committee of Development Studies of HAS on discussing on the „New World” of Post-COVID 19 Crisis. I share the views that something new has to be created, a restart similar to what happened following the World Wars.
