“Preservation of Natural resources, Innovation and Robotics for the development of the economy in the Adriatic-Ionian Region”
The primary determinant of all development strategies in Europe is the investment in research and development; in other words, innovations that have application in the economy. On the other hand, global society is entering the phase of a new revolution, at the center of robotics. Robotics will mark all spheres of society. To participate in this market competition, we must recognize this as a priority and insist on putting this in all our strategies and making future efforts in the direction of encouraging innovation through the application of robotics. This side-event, organized in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Economy – Dubrovnik County Chamber, aims at drawing attention within the Adriatic-Ionian Region to the opportunities provided to us through increased investment in innovation and robotics. The exchange of experiences, knowledge, the formation of centers of excellence, technological hubs will undoubtedly generate results over the years. An important role in this matter is preserving the most critical resource (the Sea that binds us together), respect for natural capacities, and the use of robotics to prevent certain unfavorable circumstances in the Adriatic-Ionian Region.

“COVID-19 pandemic – imposed catalyst for Women’s Entrepreneurship progress in the Adriatic and Ionian Region?”
Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, everything has changed and especially for the economic environment of women entrepreneurship.  The most affected activities during COVID-19 pandemic are those in which a larger share are women, such as consulting, education, tourism and trade. Many women in high-risk sectors are self-employed or owners of micro or small -sized enterprises, who have been especially impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Furthermore, available evidences show that women are operating business with a much lower levels of capitalization and are more reliant on their own funds. On the other side, for many women the COVID-19 crisis represented the turning point for their business, giving a large push toward woman entrepreneurship. The webinar will open a discussion and share experiences on how the COVID-19 is changing the future of work for many women.
