The main objective of the project "Visegrad Group Partnership of Economic Associations"* is to step up the scientific excellence of the Visegrad group countries through the intensive cooperation between the universities and research institutions in the field of economics. The project establishes close cooperation among the economic associations in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland which connect main targets groups (senior researchers and academics, young researchers, doctoral students, and policymakers) in V4 countries. We also target policy makers on the European level, the national level, and on the regional level to enforce an international policy debate and fill the gap between the academic research and policy-decision making processes.
We organize a joint conference of the all four Visegrad economic associations:
- Czech Economic Society,
- Hungarian Economic Association,
- Polish Economic Society,
- Slovak Economic Association.
The conference will be held in September 2019 on the Campus of Mendel University in Brno and the Faculty of Economics and Administration of Masaryk University. The conference is held in English and participants are expected to serve as discussants of a paper of other conference participant.
* The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
