The Post–Crisis World: Time for New Leaders
Social, political and economic consequences of the global crisis
undermined the effectiveness of generally accepted economic
theories and financial institutions. Europe is facing the need
for profound revision of its approach to social policy, relations
with emerging economic powers, competitiveness and building
economy based on knowledge. Political leaders and stakeholders
in such areas as business, science and culture have to confront the
same issues. Only cooperation between them may create solutions upon which the future of the Old Continent depends.

International Centre for Defence Studies
The New Role of Central Europe – 25 Years
after the Transition
Poland as a Hub for the Baltic–Adriatic and
Baltic–North Sea Energy Corridors
Not everyone has equally used the opportunity created by the
free market. Which countries have gained the most and which
the least over the past 25 years? Cheap labour force cannot be
the region’s most important competitive advantage any longer.
Central European business needs to find a new identity. Searching
for a good solution continues. Entrepreneurs from the CEE region
have finally grown up for expansion. Investments are increasingly
flowing into Western Europe, where Central European companies
take over their competitors, often more notorious than them.
Boguslaw Chrabota, Editor–in–Chief, Rzeczpospolita daily,
Poland
Together with its Visegrád Group partners and the European
Union, Poland has been promoting a north–south corridor from
the Baltic to the Adriatic, the backbone of which will be an LNG
facility at Świnoujście linked by pipeline to the Croatian island of
Krk, but that will also include upgraded telecommunications links
as well as road and rail transport. While welcome, this initiative
poses a challenge: can Poland maintain its focus on this corridor while maintaining strategically engaged in the EU’s efforts
to facilitate links to the Nordic and Baltic countries, especially
with regard to natural gas and rail transport? Our panel will take
a holistic approach to this question, addressing relevant aspects
from future sources of LNG imports to the political challenges of
multinational projects such as Rail Baltic.

How Social Media Conquer Local Societies?
Local information, created and communicated via social media,
plays more and more important role in the regional dimension.
The most relevant for urban communities will be news from the
region, which – thanks to the Internet and social media – may
become an effective instrument for bringing pressure on the local
authorities, and in the same time, is one of the best tools serving
to resolve urban problems.

European Integration in Agro–Industrial
Complex: the Reload is Inevitable
According to reports by the UN and the OECD, the Ukrainian
agro–industrial sector is likely to increase by 30 percent and be
rated among five largest agricultural economies of the world.
Conditions are: investments, urbanisation and income growth.
The eurointegration of Ukraine will bring new opportunities for
development of the sector, but also new threats. The EU and
Ukraine need to reset their relations and will have to build from
scratch a long–term, sustainable, mutually beneficial relationship
in this field.

Euro–region “Dniester” will present investment and economic
potential of national and international significance.
Over the last 10 years Poland has seen phenomenal economic

Panel discussion:
Technology Changes Business, Does It?
Almost every business leader claims that technological influences
the company’s business model. However, IT departments and
operational departments often have different objectives – that
is why instead of cooperating, they compete with each other.
How does the connection between IT and business look like in the
largest Polish organisations? What distinguishes market leaders?
And finally what to do in order for a technological change not to
be just a declaration?

Economic expectations related to the Internet of Thing are quite

bln of mobile phones. You can expect people to change their old
phones for new ones, but there will be no rapid sales growth. It
is estimated that around 50 bln of smart appliances will be connected to the Internet of Things. What business model will it create and what are the chance for the protection of privacy?

Economy – Health. Pharmaceutical Industry
The pharmaceutical industry is one of the key industries of any
modern country. Innovation, employment for highly qualified
workers, collaboration with research centers, and finally the
country’s access to locally produced medical technologies are
only some of the reasons why the European Union is racing
against the United States and other countries in pharmaceutical
industry. Poland has a great production facilities, production
technologies of generics and biosimilars, clinical research centers, and rich experience in clinical research.

Metropoles vs. Regions: Shaping Regional
Development Policies
There are natural interactions between metropolitan areas and
regions. Metropolises – industrial and information centers, as
well as the very important spots on the regional map to generate
knowledge, technology and innovation – affect the development
of its regional surroundings. Cooperation of both, metropolitan
areas and regions, benefits the whole region. How to successfully
shape a regional development policy together, including issues
related to the EU funds within The National Cohesion Strategy
2007–2013 and issues concerning the future of Cohesion Policy
in order to make better the life’s standards of the inhabitants of
the metropolis and surrounding areas?

Local Map of Health Needs as a Tool for
Planning the Restructuring of the Market
Among the Ministry of Health’s proposals for the decentralization
of the National Health Fund, those associated with the creation
of so–called regional map of health care needs appeared as
well. The efficiency of its implementation requires answers to
the following questions: will the map of needs at the regional
level result in restructuring the market, which is inevitable due
to the demographic and civilization changes? Are there successful examples of such restructuring processes undertaken at the
regional level? What are problems with their implementation and
what is their efficiency?

Flight Connections and Development of
Regional Airports in Central and Eastern
Europe
In recent decades, we can observe an incredible growth dynamics of air passenger traffic in Central and Eastern Europe. Airports
and airport infrastructure undergo constant modernization. It is
worth noticing, however, that the vast majority of new routes lead
to the west, while the connections between the countries of our
region are still very underdeveloped. What are the opportunities
for the development of air links within this part of Europe? What
can encourage airline operators to open new routes? And how
to plan out rational development strategies for regional airports’
network?

Union – Conclusions and Solutions
Poland’s accession to the European Union was not only a significant political and economic event, but also a great social one.
More than 38 million Polish citizens gained new opportunities
and the Polish economy got new impulses to grow. However,
the results of Polish accession to the EU differ in terms of their
scale, character and area. Have we used all the opportunities that
the accession and EU funds brought to us over the last 10 years,
especially in terms of relations with the societies of the countries
undergoing the process of democratization and developing the

Local and Regional Policy without Political

The question if political parties are really necessary in the local

confidence in the political parties. Does an effective management at the level of local government require a support of
political parties? Or rather the best managed government is the
one with president/major and their staff that do not represent

Local E–Government: Wishful Thinking or

Reform of Municipal Waste Management
Services provided by EU local e–governments are increasingly
better, but the citizens’ expectations are higher and higher.
According to the EU roadmap in 2015, more than 50% of the EU
citizens and 80% of the companies shall be served by e–administration. The EU countries are able to support the development
of e–administration (at all levels) from EU funds. It is important,
however, that electronic solutions introduced by the local governments should be in line with those at the central administration
level. Another major problem for e–administration is private
data protection.

Special guest:
We are just at the beginning of our adventure. When will the new
waste law be effective? Only once real waste management solutions are in operation that the right levels of recovery of materials

cheapest solutions? It should be about achieving robust waste
management systems first, then the real cost efficiency can be
achieved.

Optimal Monetary Regime for CEE and SEE
Countries
Strategies for Rapid Growth of Polish
Industrial Companies
Central, Eastern and South East European countries are implementing various monetary regimes. Some of the countries are
members of the Euro zone, some are Inflation targeters, some of
them have fixed exchange rate and some of them are in a Currency
board regime. At the same time, this group of countries contains
members of the EU, members of the Euro zone and EU candidate
and potential candidate countries. Still, all of these countries are
relatively small open economies with similar Transition history,
and Convergence challenges. What did we learn from their experiences so far? Is there an optimal monetary regime for CEE and SEE
countries? Has the Euro zone Sovereign debt Crises change the
monetary perspective of CEE and SEE countries?
Over the last 25 years, any attempt failed to build a single industrial company having features of a Polish transnational corporation with the global firmament and recognition. Does it mean
that Polish companies fear growth? Maybe they are unable to
calibrate their advantages, what means to grow fast without losing control? Or do they encounter structural barriers difficult to
overcome? These questions will be answered by the latest report
of WISE Institute.

Russia in Global Politics. A New Dimension?
All Information Channels
The world is changing very fast. Yesterday’s constancy in the world
politics holds no longer true today. The world order that emerged
after the defeat by the USSR of the Cold War, ceased to exist. And
Russia was one of the initiators of the destruction of that order.
What will be the new world order? What place will be taken in it
by the Russian Federation?
While it is clear that the information that will reach the public will
be primarily in digital form using mobile devices, the remaining
puzzle is how it will be made. Whether publishing conglomerates
will still shape the future of information media or whether their
place be will taken by diffused sources of knowledge aggregated
by automates (mobile apps etc.)? Will the journalist be replaced
by machines or will everybody be able to be a publisher?

Where Should the European Economy Be
Heading?
Economists agree that the critical phase for the European
economy is over. But where is growth now to come from? Can
post–industrial Europe re–industrialize as America has? Can green
jobs meet their promise? Can Europe’s technology sector learn to
innovate like America’s? All of these are easier for politicians to
promise than for policy–makers and entrepreneurs to turn into
reality. Can the failed Lisbon goal to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge–based economy in the world be
revived, and if so how?

Cooperation or Rivalry – What Is the Future
of Europe?
Europe needs to address the conflict in Eastern Ukraine and
tensions between the European Union and its largest neighbour
– Russia. The situation is complicated by the economic crisis,
which still affects the majority of European countries. Therefore,
it is important to strive to speak with one voce in the face of these
challenges and pursue economic initiatives that guarantee the
development of international cooperation. Searching by individual countries their own solutions may lead to the weakening
of the community and undermine the efficient functioning of
this great project.

Local Self–Governments and Private Equity
– Public–Private Partnership for Support of
Active Lifestyle
Present–day society functions in environment that does not
demand physical activity. Therefore active lifestyle promotion is
crucial for people of all ages. Undoubtedly sport helps to improve
quality of health and life in general. That is why local self–governments should act against a declining level of physical activity in
their societies.The one of those initiatives is to build up public–private partnership for promotion of active lifestyle.

McKinsey & Company
Where is the Next Billion? How to Double
the Size of Private Companies in Poland?
Private companies have become the driving force of the Polish
economy – they are not only leaders in many industries, but
also a showcase of the Polish success abroad. They have gained
momentum, which on the one hand allows them to celebrate their
achievements, but on the other hand they bring new challenges
to the owners. How should the next steps of the development of
Polish private enterprises look like? Should they focus on domestic
expansion or on foreign markets? What is a better option: organic
growth or acquisitions? How can private companies further contribute to the growth of Polish exports and innovation? How to
deal with the challenges arising from the fact that family businesses became corporations?

How to Run a Business? Global Perspective
vs. Local Barriers
Global corporations have a winning position thanks to the scale
of operations, accumulation of experience and the ability to manage a global brand, whereas national and regional players fully
utilize local knowledge and close relationships with the market.
International companies with branches in many countries are
likely to develop global and local activity synergy effect. At the
same time however, the managers of transnational structures
indicate problems with regulations of economic activity, legal

Family Companies – Potential for Building
Competitiveness in International Markets
It is estimated that in Poland 80% of all business entities are
family businesses. They generate more than 40% of GDP and
50% of all workplaces in the country. Thriving family businesses
are the building block of every strong economy. Are Poles aware
of the potential that lies in family businesses and of their role in
the development of the Polish economy? In fact, they are the
incubator of Polish entrepreneurship, and among Polish family
businesses there are many well–known brands. What favours their
development and what limits it? Do they have a chance to build
a competitive advantage on the international markets?

Who Needs an Ultra–Supervision? – The
Pros and Cons of Financial Supervision in
Poland
The last crisis has shown that the state’s policy towards the financial sector, as well as the quality of regulations and supervision
are key elements of the stable economy. The financial supervisory
bodies should not only focus on particular entities, but also pay
attention to macroeconomic factors that pose a potential threat
to the financial system as a whole. However, overregulation is
a matter of concern too. Less strict regulations can mean better
effectiveness of execution. Politicians and financial sector representatives will discuss the role of financial supervision.

Russia–EU Gas Relations: “High Road” Gas
Scenario in the New Geopolitical Situation
In March 2012, the Russian Ministry of Energy and the European
Commission signed the Roadmap of Russia–EU Energy Cooperation to establish a long–term perspective to their mutual energy
relations until 2050. One of the most important task for its practical implementation is to create HIGH ROAD gas scenario up to
2030 which would be considered acceptable and potentially providing a tolerable level of uncertainty for both sides. The panel
discussion will focus on the design elements, policy assumptions
and other aspects of HIGH ROAD perspective for EU–Russia gas

Healthy Worker – a Healthy Economy. The
Cost Ratio – the Case of the Treatment of
Depression.
Depression and economy – a surprising combination and a serious
current issue. Examples of sports and film stars struggling against
depression show that the problem affects also successful people.
How much does the economy lose because of the depression?
Do we see the systemic dimension of the problem of depression
among the professionally active people in Poland? According to
the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS), the social costs of depression have a significant range, and costs of social benefits exceed
treatment expenditure. The Economic Forum is the perfect venue
to present a report on the cost structure of depression and to
discuss a new approach to systemic solutions.

Minimum Wage vs Minimum Income – the
Need for an European Standard?
In Europe exists already concepts of minimum wages and/or
minimum incomes. In Germany there is a minimum income
system. Still, one of the crucial issues raised during the election
campaign in Germany was the introduction of a minimum wage
which later on dominated the coalition talks between CDU/CSU
and SPD. The concept of ‘minimum wage’ often meets with negative response for employers and it often creates mixed reactions
among experts. At the same time the concept of a minimum
income is often used as an alternative solution. With a situation
on the job market still calling for quick remedies, is the European
Union in need of either solution?

One Country – Two Languages
Ukraine – Economy and Justice
Ukraine and Russia, after the Crimean crisis, are confronted with
the dilemma of co–existence of two (or more) languages used in
their public life. The usage of minority languages, especially Russian, creates additional tensions within countries and in bilateral
relations. It is a subject of diverse political tendencies and special
programs of strengthening particular competing languages. Is
complex Post–Soviet political landscape a place where one can
introduce modern multilingual model as a reflection of its cultural
and linguistic diversity?
Economic transformation of independent Ukraine and the
implementation of market economy mechanisms on the one
hand contributed to the growth of private entrepreneurship and
democratic attitudes and aspirations, while on the other hand
they caused some strong economic differences within the society.
They resulted in a new social stratification, perceived as unfair,
that is a reason for social and political conflicts. The economy
and public finances are in permanent crisis and the society suffers
from it. Is a combination of an efficient economy and equitable
distribution of goods possible in Ukraine?

Crisis: Forging the Next Stage of Strategic

Events in Ukraine revealed once again that a strong transatlantic
partnership is a fundamental element of foreign policy on both

dialogue needs to be renewed and deepened both when it comes
to political and economic cooperation. But forging a common

The Topicality of Jerzy Giedroyc’s Thoughts
– Poland – Ukraine – the West
Ukraine and Polish–Ukrainian relations have been main fields
of political and publishing activity of Jerzy Giedroyc. Giedroyc
considered normalization of Polish–Ukrainian relations with
no resentments as a main duty of Polish emigration. For years
he had been trying to find fields of common ground that could
help to get rid of prejudice, and he continuously promoted and
popularized Ukrainian matters on the European forum. Thanks
to him Ukraine has become a central part of Polish foreign policy.
In 1991 Poland as the first country in the world recognized independence of Ukraine. The discussion will revolve around the
place and the role of Ukraine in 2014, with a view of topicality of
Giedroyc’s thoughts.

Public media in many countries operate quite different from how

Panel discussion:
The Potential for Cooperation yet to Use: Science,
Business, NGO and Self–Government
According to the article 226 of the Finance Act long–term financial forecasts of Local Government Units should be realistic.
However that reality of long–term planning is hard to achieve
due to a significant number of factors that affect incomes and
expenditures of Local Government Units. The Act is not precise
as how to the long–term financial forecast should be reached.
The only hints, that allow to set criteria of feasibility there are the
regulations of the Public Finance Act pertaining to the subject of
Regional Accounting Councils’ audit and opinions on content of
the long–term financial forecast.

Regional Gas Market in the Face of Global
Developments
Gas markets in the European Union are becoming more liberalised
and integrated. Efficient and well–functioning market is essential in maintaining secure supplies – ensuring that gas is flowing
where it is needed and when needed. The market also needs to
be able to operate efficiently and flexibly to respond to global
and regional developments as well.
The emergence of commercially viable unconventional gas worldwide and increasing usage of LNG technology is reshaping the
global energy market and gas flows and pricing patterns, thus
changing the role of longstanding arrangements.

How to Win Elections? Upcoming Trends in
Political Marketing
Political marketing has become the fastest evolving industry. New
media’s pressure for better and better identification of voters, for
microtargeting and putting them together in groups of stakeholders, for reaching voters and turning them into promoters
of candidates and their parties, for running permanent election
campaigns is so great that techniques which guaranteed a victory
three or four years earlier are outdated today. The best theorists
and practitioners will discuss political marketing development
directions.

China–CEE City Cooperation Forum
China’s rapid urbanization has magnified the reach of globalization inward to smaller cities and counties in the past few years.
Driven by this far–reaching social–economic event, more and
more Chinese cities have substantially more economic weight,
international influence, and aspiration to connect with the world.
Eastern European countries, as a gateway to Europe, have great
potential for the development of relations with the Chinese
regions and cities. Guests of the session will consider how the Middle Kingdom and Eastern Europe can work together to strengthen
cooperation between cities and local governments.

The Future of Regional Railways
Cites & regions are at the heart of one the world’s global challenges. Today, cities are covering only 2% of the Earth surface,
but cumulating 50% of world population. It is expected that by
2050, 70 % of people will live the cities. No single company, city
or organization can solve a city’s challenges alone. This requires
new collaborative approach of city organization, working
together with best–in–class partners across the whole SmartCity
value–chain. Smart cities are not the future. Smart city solutions
are a reality today, for each and every city!
Since the end of 2008 the local authorities are owners of ‘Przewozy Regionalne’ (‘Regional Railways’), the biggest passenger
train operator in Poland. The trains of ‘Przewozy Regionalne’
often arrive to the stations which are frequently perceived as
not enough profitable by commercial train operators. In order to
make tickets more affordable for passengers and encourage them
to use the trains of ‘Przewozy Regionalne’, every year regional
marshals subsidise this unprofitable transport with hundreds of
millions zloty. ‘Przewozy Regionalne’ brings loss (60 mln PLN in
2013) every year. Will the budgets of regions have to cover the
gigantic debt of ‘Przewozy Regionalne’? Is creating new railway
networks using EU funds profitable?

Polish membership in the EU has resulted in receiving huge

particularly in Eastern Europe, as well as the consequences of the
implementation of EU directives (especially respecting climate)
and revision of the EU’s agricultural policy cause an additional
reason to use the experience of others, such as Sweden. The representatives of Swedish companies and local governments will

Yes! This Is How We Are Changing the PKP

Global competition resembles economic world championships.
Countries that win not only have the satisfaction, but also achieve
a higher standard of living. Poland joined this economic competition after 1989, opening up to foreign capital and not introducing
any preference for the domestic capital. Can Poland develop further without domestic global companies? Can Polish companies
achieve economies of scale and become global enterprises without the support of the state and domestic consumers? Can domestic entrepreneurs influence economic policy of the state?
Investment projects worth billions, the largest infrastructure
modernization program in the history of the Polish railway,
modern rolling stock and putting the client in the center of

The Role of Local Products in the Domestic

Energy Union. How to Strenghten Polish and

Development of the local goods market is an excellent way to
promote regions. It is also beneficial for social and economic
reasons. It accelerates start–ups and stimulates creation of new
jobs. How can local products be effectively introduced into the
domestic market and effectively promoted? Cooperation with
large retail chains is also an opportunity for development of
local and regional products market.
Secured access to energy resources is crucial for the development
of modern economies. It is a priority for Poland since it has limited
resources of coal and natural gas. This goal can be reached directly
by acquisition of deposits or partnership with their owners or
operators. However, this task can also be done indirectly by making use of European Union political leverage to negotiate an equal
treatment. To what extent can the Energy Union help Poland and
other member states live up to challenges facing them, and what
principles should it be based on?

Onshore or Offshore – Economic Aspects
of Wind Energy Development in Central

Both onshore and offshore wind energy are among the most
dynamically developing energy technologies in Europe. Offshore
is more expensive but forces development of coastal regions and
maritime industry, onshore on the other hand is cheaper but is
socially controversial and is limited by available space. Both will
play a significant role in the economy and energy systems of Central Europe. What are the trends and is there enough space for
both technologies? What are the European experiences, especially

Information Security. Are We All Spies? Are

Europe gave up its sovereignty without firing a single shot. Imperceptibly, it lost everything what constitutes it: finance, information, contacts between people, culture, control over transport and
orders for the army. Everything that was until recently national,
and then European, is increasingly eroding. Transfer of the European intellectual property to the American continent occurs on
an unprecedented scale. Europeans become large exporters of
private life. Their agendas, lists of friends, photos and the most
intimate communication, their big and small secrets are subject
to the judicial system tens of thousands of miles away.

economy and the core of its security and sovereignty. Infrastructure development requires a pro–investment policy of the
government, including supportive law regulations, and also the
availability of financial resources for their implementation. We
will discuss investment barriers and incentives in Poland as well
as available sources of financing. We will also identify changes
needed, which are desirable to enable entrepreneurs to invest
in infrastructure. In addition, speakers will discuss the role of
the government in shaping a friendly environment that will
contribute to fully exploiting the potential of Polish enterprises,
and consequently also to further dynamic economic growth of
the country.

EMU Reform from the Perspective of Non–
Eurozone’s Member States
Global Trends in Energy Sector in the 21st
Century – New Challenges
Since the presentation of the report Towards a genuine EMU
(December 2012) progress has been made on the key building
blocks to strengthen the consolidation of EMU architecture. This
process builds on the EU’s institutional framework, while ensuring
a level playing–field between EU Member States and maintaining
transparency towards non–euro Member States.
Though modest and still fragile, the EU’s economic recovery,
sustained through the Single Resolution Mechanism, remains
essential for achieving a functional EMU and a complete Banking Union.
The world is on the verge of a systemic crisis, involving the economy, politics, and international relations. It is facing global energy
changes caused by technological development. Efficient use of
fuel technologies and management of non–traditional hydrocarbon resources and renewable sources show that the energy deficit
is not threatful to the humanity, quite on the contrary – the proficit
of global energy resources is coming. What will be the policy of
the state and business under new conditions?

The Future of Eastern Partnership and
Enlargement Policy of the EU in the
Aftermath of the Ukraine Crisis, Part I
Ukraine crisis has prompted the EU to consider changing its Eastern Partnership strategy. Could those changes be effective unless
agreed with Russia? Surprisingly, there has been little talk so far
about the impact of Ukraine crisis on the EU enlargement process.
Should the EU ignore its enlargement fatigue in order to prevent
the increase of influence of other major players in the Balkans?

Baltic Countries: Energy Connectivity and
Regional Cooperation
How Has the Internet Changed the
Perception of Reputation?
Is it possible to deepen the integration and enhance the connectivity of Baltic countries so that they speak with one voice, especially within the EU? This panel will explore of how to strengthen
the cooperation of countries located at the Baltic Sea rim. What
are the chances for boosting energy connectivity and political
cooperation in areas such as promoting Belarus and Ukraine in
Western structures?
With the emergence of social medias, the reputation has become
more and more difficult to control. In the Web 1.0 era, a brand
could satisfy itself with a website and some Google keywords. In
the Web 2.0 era, it has to care about social medias as well, and how
its community target is commented on on the forum. Today, every
company is aware that its reputation can be ruined in less than
24 hours. But it also can be repaired as fast as it was destroyed.
Everybody wants to shine on the web. It is a major issue to care
about the social community and what it is saying: the community
manager has become a key PR figure

Europe’s Dreaming of Power: What Future
for the Common Security and Defence
Policy?
The European Council on Defence, which took place in December 2013, was supposed to give a new impetus to the Common
Security and Defence Policy. Even if it failed to reshape CSDP’s
ambitions and update its agenda both in terms of military capacity and political willingness, it opened a revamped strategic
debate. Recent crises in Africa (Mali, Central African Republic,
Egypt) tend to confirm the lack of consensus regarding the
prioritisation of common threats and challenges. What Europe
needs in order to be considered as a global actor is a clearer and
a more concrete definition of what its common strategic and vital
interests are. What is the place of Europe in a world dominated
by Realpolitik?

Eastern European countries throughout most of its history are
in between Russia and the West as two opposing civilizations
attached to particular social and political, economic and cultural

nowadays? Does modern Russia offer an alternative to Western

Presentation:
Why the EU Needs a Passport for European Resident
Data?
The cloud market is developing fast, with $58 billion spent last
year alone on data storage solutions, online software subscriptions and a myriad of other services. While the business value of
anytime–anywhere access is undeniable, more thought needs
to be given to ensuring that the data entrusted to the cloud is in
safe hands. A mosaic of overlapping laws in the EU and beyond
does little to reassure citizens and companies that data is fully
protected. Could an EU–wide passport establishing pragmatic
rules for data protection be the guarantee needed to ensure
privacy and – importantly – trust?
rises every day. This market is growing so rapidly that necessary
regulations are left behind. Many companies, especially after the
PRISM scandal, have come to consider terminating contracts with
American cloud computing giants. Investment in cloud solutions
can be very beneficial for Europe, both in the private and public
sector. However, a number of questions arise about the security
and fear of data loss. What is the real threat to the European cloud
computing?

EU Presidency – a Real Impact or Just
a Political Ritual?
Do we really need the EU Presidency? On the one hand, after
the Treaty of Lisbon the importance of the Presidency has been
significantly reduced and some of its powers were transferred to
other bodies. On the other hand, the rotating EU leadership gives
citizens the opportunity for European–like thinking and shows
them that EU policies can be formulated also out of Brussels. Considering the current Italian position in the EU – especially after the
EU Parliament elections – and all the issues on the table, if Italy
rigorously face the themes, it will have the opportunity to also
demonstrate that the EU Presidency may be a great opportunity
to manage the EU matters.

Education Meets Business: How to Organize
Vocational Education and Training?
In a context of demographic changes, rapidly evolving labor markets and high youth unemployment rates in many countries, there
is a strong demand for closing the gap between employers’ needs
and what education provides. Vocational education and training
(VET) systems are an answer to this challenge. In Switzerland, most
VET programmes are based on a dual system, combining theoretical training at a vocational school and practical training in a host
company. In Poland, increasing the relevance of VET has become
a priority of the education policy and several reforms are ongoing.
The panel will discuss issues such as the cooperation between
employers and schools,the funding of VET programmes, as well
as their responsiveness to changes in the labor market.

After 5 years, the Eastern Partnership is assessed differently.
Some of the partnership’s countries have grasped their chance
introducing political and economic reforms as well as improving
democratic standards, thus bringing them closer to Europe. Some
of the countries were not able to benefit from the EU’s proposition. Where is the Eastern Partnership now? Has it fulfilled reposed

The Economy of Art
Europe à la Carte: How to Move Forward?
The panel addresses the question of how to employ art as an
instrument of economy, In order to contest its general public perception as an unprofitable activity, art will be looked at in terms of
its economic value that will however not lead to its excessive commercialization. Art production in general will never match other
sector’s contribution to the national gross value added nor will it
be the main financial asset in one’s investment portfolio. However,
art has the potential to boost both economic activity and employment, and – if properly exploited – business potential.
Some EU member states increasingly claim the right for selecting,
as if from a menu, specific rules, policies or exceptions that suit
them from a common agreed decision making process. Flexibility,
multiple speed or concentric circles discussions are not new in the
European integration history but seems to gain forces as some
are even asking for a different balance of competences. These
requests may lead to loosening of ties between member States
or undermining the whole European Union. How to check selfish
inclinations and commitment to negotiating further “opt–outs”,
and to maintain a unionist feature that underlies the very idea
of the European Community? How to make sure that the already
different entities (EU–28, Eurozone, Schengen Area, etc.) produce
efficient actions, legitimate decisions, and, simple understanding
for the citizens?

– What Brings Us Together, What Tears Us

For many years a tension between three major religions have
raised. As a result, in many regions there are cases of violence,
persecutions and massacres. Very often, the reason for this is the
disproportion between the intellectual and economic development. And these two should go hand in hand. The situation is
even more challenging when religion is used in politics. Sacrum is

Getting Smart on Energy – from Civilian to
Military Domains
Energy security is one of the key challenges of the 21st century,
closely connected to other emerging security challenges, such as
terrorism and cyber threats. Dealing with these threats, the armed
forces stand among the largest energy consumers in almost all
countries. As a consequence, impact of energy consumption on
defence budgets and military effectiveness is constantly growing and it becomes an Achilles heel of military operations. On
the other hand, military has a big potential in providing new
energy efficient technologies, implementing alternative energy
sources and being innovative. Thus, what is being done in order
to increase the security of the soldiers participating in military
operations, contribute to the solution of climate change problem,
reduce the costs of the overall operations and still to succeed
militarily?

Women in Business and Politics – The

Women today are very active in the world of business and politics
that for a long time was reserved primarily for men. Nowadays
many organisations and institutions choose women for the highest positions. And not so much because of political correctness as
due to the deep changes that have occurred in global business,
which is now more and more oriented to diversity. Companies are
increasingly aware that diversity and gender balance are important elements of competitive advantage. However, surveys show
that the glass ceiling for women still exists. Guests of this session
will try to consider how to support and form feasible policies to
empower women.

Multilingualism in Europe – Possibilities of
Its Preservation
The EU officially supports multilingualism and recommends that
all citizens should study at least 3 languages, including their
mother tongue. But what happens in practice? Only a small percentage speaks another language fluently, at level C1, and less
than 1% speaks a third language well. The 2012 pan–European
assessment did not even test the C1 level, because few students
ever reach this level. Could the propedeutic method improve the
situation? The panel will discuss the practical results of this programme in the UK since 2006, its potential, and the EU linguistic
situation in general.

It is already well–known around the word: intellectual fund of the
nation must be protected, because it is the main driving force of
the progress. Intellectual property becomes the fundamental for
any high–tech business, and also a basis for formation of intangible assets of the companies by playing the important role in
valuation of the cost of the company on the market. Because of
all this companies are trying to protect their innovations from
competitors. Only protection of intellectual property rights will
allow companies and even countries to defend their intellectual
right and avoid many of patent wars.

The Future of Eastern Partnership and

Aftermath of the Ukraine Crisis, Part II
Ukraine crisis has prompted the EU to consider changing its Eastern Partnership strategy. Could those changes be effective unless
agreed with Russia? Surprisingly, there has been little talk so far
about the impact of Ukraine crisis on the EU enlargement process.
Should the EU ignore its enlargement fatigue in order to prevent
the increase of influence of other major players in the Balkans?

Transformation in the nineties gave Central Europe an opportunity for unprecedented economic growth. Despite economic
improvement region’s potential is not fully used. CEE has integrated with the EU market, however, needs to catch up in the
field of science and innovation. The region also needs new markets, particularly in the light of recent trade barriers with Russia.
Chances may also be taken with the upcoming trade agreement

Historic Chance?
It was a quarter century ago when the speed of life in Central
Europe has suddenly accelerated. In a single moment borders
would disappear or be raised, leaders would loose their grip on
power, and societies would have to face completely new rules
of everyday life. How do we perceive these changes 25 years

– a Challenge for European Economies
Currently in Europe unemployment rates constantly rise, especially among young people for whom there is little space on the
labour market. At the same time more and more countries reform
their pension systems raising the retirement age. Seeing latest

should European economies prepare their labour markets for the

Are Divided Memories a Threat to a United

The panel will look at the way in which historical narratives about
the past could threaten a common European future. Despite integrated markets and open borders, our collective historical memories remain divided. Are these a barrier to genuine reconciliation
and a united Europe? Are our current international institutions
dealing with these issues; what do we need to improve to speed
up the process? Is history teaching relevantly and if yes, how can
it be of help? What can the Western Balkans learn from Central
Europe when it comes to reconciling with the past? And what
lessons should the EU learn from the Balkans?

Eurasian Economic Union: Who Will Gain,

The project of Eurasian Economic Union, initiated by Russia, is
aimed to integrate economically and politically the region of the
former Soviet Union, with Moscow being its center. The customs
union guarantees free flow of goods and services and opens up
for new sales market. Many experts and politicians claim that
the project will be profitable mostly for Russia at the expense of
other members. What is the future of the Union? Is it really that
the countries beyond Russia participate on the less profitable
conditions? Do economic sanctions open up new opportunities
for the Union’s members?

Regional Defence Cooperation – from the

Top Trends: The Future of U.S. – Polish
Business Relations
The panelists will discuss initiatives regarding the regional
defence cooperation and its prospects in the light of extremely
important trends. Enhanced cooperation stems from a crisis of
European military capabilities, reducing of the American military
presence in Europe, rearmament of Russia, and progressive raising of the costs of militarization. Is regional defence cooperation
possible in the area between the Arctic and the Danube and might
it be a response to these challenges? What will be the place of
Poland in these initiatives?
This panel will focus on the geopolitical conceptualization of
Poland’s 25 year transformation, and on thinking ahead to what
should be done to make the next 25 years in Poland a success.
Subjects for discussion include energy, business activity, transatlantic cooperation, education, as well as the cooperation between
business and academia. We would like to concentrate on decisions
that need to be made in Poland’s investment environment in order
to address market needs, as well as modernizing business activity
in Poland to make sure the next 25 years are prosperous.

Newspapers Will Survive! But How Will They
Look Like?
Grzegorz W. Kolodko and 25 Years of
Transformation
Will the readers’ habits change as fast as technology? Will the
printed press survive or will it be simply unprofitable? Will the
editorial offices move to the Internet or will it be just absorbed
into the web portals? What is the experience of Europe and other
continents?
Professor Grzegorz W. Kolodko, a prominent economist of
a worldwide renown, one of the architects of Polish economic
transformation, in his new book The Road to Now tells how
Poland and the world got landed in their present situation. The
four–time prime minister and minister of finance, who twice
salvaged the Polish public treasury from the financial collapse,
and in both cases he left the office with a record growth rate, is
predestined as hardly anyone to give such an account. Like Don
Quixote, he struggles with dogmas, passionately argues with
formulaic ideas, meticulously analyses the process of economic
transformation and ruthlessly points to its weaknesses. Addressing pressing issues, he explains how a wrong economic policy has
contributed to the current crisis and why mathematical formulas
should be accompanied by a deep humanistic reflection in the
economy of the future.

The problem of illegal immigration concerns not only EU border
countries but also other member states that are often main destinations of the immigrants from non–EU countries. In October
2013 all eyes in Europe were fixed on the Italian island Lampedusa
where a ship sank with more than 300 illegal immigrants. This
catastrophe showed that the problem of illegal immigration cannot be ignored any longer and some joint solutions are necessary.
Also Eastern boarders of the EU have to tackle the problem of
illegal immigration. What measures should the EU institutions
take to prevent another Lampedusa?

Lessons from the Ukrainian Crisis: Does
Europe Need a New Security Paradigm?
There is a new type of modern warfare which neither Ukraine
nor the world were prepared to. Global, European and national
security systems have been unable to respond appropriately to
it. Ukrainian crisis tested the military–political solidarity of the EU
and Euro–Atlantic community. Autocratic regimes and totalitarian
ideologies challenged the model of liberal ideology and values
of pan–European identity. Will Ukraine and the world respond to
these challenges, providing peace and security in Europe? How
to make the transition from a security order to the development
of common security strategies?

Ukraine and the European Union: from
Association to Membership
Commentator:
Tetiana Zaiats, Head of International Cooperation
Department, National Institute for Strategic Studies under
President of Ukraine, Ukraine
A systemic crisis in Ukraine of late 2013 – early 2014 resulted in the
substantial “reset” of power and the crystallization of values and
priorities in the progress of the society. One of the important consequences of these changes is the confirmation of the European
vector of Ukraine’s development which has become apparent in
signing the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU.
However, this is just the beginning of a new phase in the European
integration of Ukraine. Further successful advancement along this
way will depend on answers to the essential questions: What is the
significance and feasibility of realizing Ukraine’s economic, social
and humanitarian potential for a united Europe? How to ensure
the maximum positive impact of the European Association for
the development of the Ukrainian society? Is a new international
“Marshall Plan” feasible (and appropriate) for Ukraine?

Ukraine – It’s Worth Investing
Processes taking place in Ukraine and around it are changing
the country’s investment climate. New investment opportunities arise not only in separate industries, but particularly in
small cities and less urbanised regions. Participants of the discussion: representatives of the Ukrainian government, regions,
self–regulatory organisations and business people will highlight
the benefits of unlocking the potential of small cities for foreign
direct investment.

Green or Black? Coal versus Renewables.
Central European Point of View
In the Media Web – Between Control and
Manipulation
The transition from the conventional energy sources into renewable energy is a long–term, complex and cost–intensive process
requiring huge financial expenditure and readiness to the coal
sector restructuralisation along with a long term and consequent
state energy policy. The conclusion is that the coal will remain the
main energy source in Poland and the whole CEE region for the
next few years. Is the mining industry „idol with feet of clay” or an
undiscovered potential requiring deep structural reforms?
Multiple channels and quick access to the information create
a situation when the recipient of information doesn’t have
a chance to verify the source. It becomes more and more difficult
to distinguish a genuine information from a propaganda. In such
situation, the one who gets to the reader or viewer first, wins the
battle for the mind of the public. Is there a chance for an integral
and thorough journalism?

Służba zdrowia – Polish medical journal
Public Heath in the Social and Economic
Aspect
Investment in the health capital is one of the main conditions of
the economic growth. In order to achieve the aims of the modern health service idea, not only the health sector, but all social
and economic sectors of the state shall be deeply engaged. An
attention from the governmental level is required. The economic
growth does not always mean the proportional improvement of
the social and economic status of the citizens and thereby the
improvement of their health condition both in the population
and individual aspect. It seems to be unavoidable to introduce
in the law making process an obligatory assessment of the consequences of regulation not only on the public finances but also
on the broadly understood health sector.

Indirect Costs in Healthcare System.
Presentation of the Report from the Pilot
Project
In response to the growing needs and costs of the health care and,
therefore, the necessity of continuous improvement of allocation
of scarce resources, the concept of indirect costs and the methodology for their measurement in the Polish health care system were
elaborated and presented at the Forum in 2013. A pilot assessment of the medical technology that takes into account indirect
costs was introduced in 2014. It depicts a complete picture of the
costs and benefits of using a particular method of treatment. How
important is this measurement in estimating the benefits of medical technology? How should these costs be taken into account in
the process of the assessment of medical technology as well as
during the decision process as far as financing them from public
funds is concerned?

organisational burdens, which is why outlays do not reflect real

Small Smart City – How to Support the
Development of Small Cities and Attract
Investors to Them?
Developing activities outside the metropolitan areas is a sign of
a healthy market and a vibrant economy. For many companies, it
is a natural decision. The investment opportunities are short today
and therefore they enter the local markets. The towns that want to
be attractive in terms of investment, should be easily accessible.
Therefore the construction of roads and highways is a top priority.
However, it is equally important that municipalities and towns had
the idea for their development and have chosen specialization.
How can local authorities encourage entrepreneurship? What are
the strengths of investing in the communities in comparison to
investment opportunities in the big cities?

Economic Power of Polish Regions. Case
Study: Nowy Sacz and Its Road to Success
How is it possible that the region that before the war was associated with “Galician poverty” is today one of the most economically developed regions in Poland? Is the legend of Sędziwoj from
Nowy Sącz still alive – the 17 century’s “prince of alchemists” who
became famous in whole Europe for the ability of turning lead
into gold? Or maybe is it the aftermath of the famous “experiment
of Sącz” from the time of the Polish People’s Republic? Why it
is exactly in this region that the Economic Forum – the biggest
economic event in this part of Europe – take place and why do
so many rich Poles live there? These questions will be tackled by
panelists invited by “Gazeta Bankowa” who will also tell us how to
spread the business bug to the other regions of Poland. And not
to make it all so rosy–tinted, they will probably say that it could
have been much better were it not for… What kind of obstacles

Global Urban Challenges – Creating Equal
Opportunity Cities
The inequalities are growing between social groups and different
parts of the city, in terms of income, housing, health and access
to the public space and its collective goods. Several reports suggest that the cities are being polarised. The on–going processes
of globalisation, migration and urbanisation interact in a way
that is mutually reinforcing which creates new challenges. The
problems have substantial effects on the local level. The typical
conflict of interests that must be addressed in the cities of today
is that action to ensure economic growth may have effects that
go against social sustainability. Growth is not necessarily synonymous with fairer cities.

discussion panel
Is the EU’s Banking Union Needed?
Demographic challenges and increasing life duration of European
society have an impact on the pension schemes sustainability
in Europe including Polish one. Are changes in European pension schemes, for instance increasing pension age or changes
in funded pension schemes enough to maintain sustainability
or will it be necessary to conduct further reforms focused on
schemes balancing? All those questions ZUS panel guests will
try to answer.
After three years of discussions and negotiations, Europe finally
has a full–fledged banking union. The new architecture will be
implemented gradually, beginning this autumn with the single
supervision mechanism, and then more progressively with
the single resolution mechanism. However, the complexity of
these mechanisms and their limited aspect cast doubt on the
effectiveness of the banking union that seems to have forgotten its original purpose – removing interdependence between
bank risk and sovereign default. Can the banking union be more
than just yet another technocratic level and successfully address
banking crises?

To Cut or to Increase Taxes? The Impact of
Fiscal Policy on the Economic Situation in
European Countries
Across the EU, governments are seeking ways out of the sovereign
debt crisis. One option is to increase taxes.The other one goes in
the opposite direction: taxes should be lowered so as to stimulate
the economy. The crucial question to discuss is the macro–economic impact of each decision. Another question regarding the
euro zone is whether it is possible to pursue a fiscal policy on
a national level while the monetary policy is centralised with the
ECB. All European nations and the EU are going through a risky
time – which may create opportunities, but also disruptions for
some players.

Demographic Limitations for CEE Economies
Competitiveness in XXI Century
In stagnant continents like Europe innovation is practiced more
in discourse than in reality. However, in vibrant regions like Asia
or Latin America new development models are actively experimented in spite of legacy reputations for imitation and followership. Global rebalancing towards the South and the East is taking
place in the knowledge economy chessboard. Time has come to
re–learn the value of dynamic industrial policy and take stock of
workable ideas for a renewed real economy.
In the CEE region fertility rate has been kept constantly below 1.5
for over 20 years now. In Poland it used to be around 1.2–1.4, which
means one third less since the previous generation. According
to OECD, Poland will soon be one of the three countries with the
lowest potential for raising competitiveness in the 21st century,
due to negative demographic balance. The aim of the panel is to
diagnose the range of the demographic threat to macroeconomic
stability and solidarity between generations. The discussion will
include recommendations for family policies pursued at the state
level and by local government units.

Health management in modern economy
– the growing social needs versus financial
capabilities of a country
The creation of an efficient health care system, especially in the
face of demographic change, is not an easy challenge in respect
to the whole of Europe. During the debate, we will present the
proven models of health care management markets in Europe
and consider best solutions for Poland. We will discuss the impact
of the current model of treatment on the Polish economy and
whether its operation is possible without private insurance sector.
We will analyze that innovation, monitoring the quality control
and competitiveness have a positive impact on the long term
effectiveness of spending in health care.

Brain Drain – Competing for Tomorrow’s
Talents
Human capital is recognized as an important competitive factor
for firms and economies. The knowledge–economy demands
more and more highly educated labor. Many countries are
expanding their education system to accommodate this change
and therefore the increase in demand is followed by an increase
in supply. But education systems are moving slowly and demand
fast, the competition for the right talent has intensified. Countries
design policies to attract and retain highly skilled immigrants. Two
challenges must be faced. First how can policies attract talent and
second which talent is needed. These are the two policies we will
discuss in this session.

Is Recession Over? Prospects for Economic
Growth in 2014
We have experienced the most violent crisis for decades, and we
are at a crossroads. After the shock wave of the 1990s political
upturn, the global economic order has shifted with the rise of
a new superpower. The announced American self–sufficiency in
terms of energy supply at the 2020 horizon is about to yet again
redistribute the cards. If you add to it environmental concerns
and, basically, business as usual does seem to be an option any
more, with or without a recession. So is it really the end of the
crisis, or just a beginning ?

Institut Prospective et Sécurité en Europe
(IPSE)
Religion in Geopolitics : a Vector of Peace or
a Factor of War?
The recent conflicts (Afghanistan, Mali, Central African Republic,
Syria, Iraq...) have either been influenced or provoked by religious factors, thus leading towards a shift in geopolitics where
religions can be seen both as a vector of peace and stability and
a factor of confrontation and insecurity. Interfaith dialogue, as
well as religious leaders’ involvement in mediation and peace
facilitation process tend to open a new chapter of soft policy
and engage a “track two diplomacy” agenda, complementing
or sometimes replacing bilateral and multilateral diplomacy.
Whether the above will lead to the emergence of a “religious
diplomacy” is still to be confirmed, as conflicts continue to arise
in the name of religions.

Economia Reale
The United States of Europe or the Twilight
of the EU?
Difficult consequences of the economic crisis made many people
doubt in the further sense of reinforcing cooperation between
the EU member states. Due to economic problems in European
countries many politicians set national interests above the European solutions. On the other hand, there are still many followers of
the idea of deepening the European integration in order to create
the United States of Europe. They argue that the cooperation is
the only way to face current economic and political difficulties.

Mirko Cvetkovic
Predation on Financial Markets – A New
Dictatorship in Europe?
Modern theories of financial market predation argue that the main
precondition for predation is asymmetric information. Since the
predation is always about predator and prey this means that there
are crucial market information available to predator and not to
prey. Are we entering the situation of a new dictatorship in the
financial markets introduced by financial predators? Is it possible
to protect the potential preys only by legislation and administrative actions, or additional education is required. These are the
questions that need to be seriously addressed. The question is
how efficient the anti–monopoly bodies (and courts) are? The
experience, so far is mixed.

Economy after Neoliberalism
The global economic crisis has revealed the weaknesses of
neo–liberal capitalism. The collapse of many economies and the
crisis in the United States and Western Europe compels seeking
alternatives to the current system. The intellectual chaos can create a new world financial deal. Already, progressive and left–wing
forces that govern or co–govern in many countries are engaged in
such a debate. The aim of the panel is to try to grasp it.
