Aims & Scope of the conference

The conference promotes an exchange of ideas and contacts of academicians from different fields of interest. In addition, it offers opportunities to meet and talk with experts from practice.  For example, representatives of the Czech National Bank and entrepreneurs who traditionally participate in the conference. The primary goal of the conference is to present both theoretical and empirical papers in the field of economy, business economics, management, and economics related modeling.

In 2021, the conference is subtitled „Crisis Management". We welcome both perspectives: macroeconomic (fiscal and monetary policy instruments) and also microeconomic (enterprise crisis management). There are included also traditional topics discussed at every HED conference, please see the track topics for further details. Moreover, two workshops on technology transfer and healthcare management are being prepared.  More details will be available in October.

The proceedings are every year send to the Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index evaluation.
