The 27th edition of the Krynica Economic Forum, an important meetup for decision-makers in Central and Eastern Europe, will be held under the title “Project Europe: A Recipe for the Coming Decades” in Krynica-Zdrój, Poland in early September.

Every year, this three-day event gathers together thousands of people — including prominent figures — from political, business, technology and cultural circles from Europe, Asia, and the USA. Thus last year more than 3,500 participants came from 60 countries and attended 180 panels.

The 2017 edition will cover such topics as macroeconomics, business and management, health care, media and culture.

An important focus will be made on technologies and innovation through a series of panel discussions about:

  • security in the Internet-of-Things;
  • innovations in the European economy: from ideas to implementation
  • eco-friendly transportation in Poland: how electromobility, new hybrid and gas technologies will change cities
  • the fintech revolution
  • cyber security and data protection for business
  • bitcoin and blockchain and how they can redefine data

As part of the “Innovations in the European economy” discussion, East-West Digital News will present key findings of its research “Startup Investment and Innovation in Emerging Europe.”

On the political side, the most pressing international issues will be discussed, including such ones as:

  • the prospects of the relationship between Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, on one side, and the EU, on the other side;
  • the shift of power in the UK, France, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, and their impact on international relations;
  • America’s evolution under the Trump mandate the impact on European policies.

The forum is organized by the Warsaw-based Institute for Eastern Studies in partnership with Małopolska Region and Krynica-Zdrój.
