GOAL The 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.
