This year’s EIC will focus on topics of:

Sustainability & the need for Responsible Leadership

The social, economic and environmental challenges of the 2020s require new approaches to leadership and responsibility. A recent World Economic Forum initiative indicates a common thread – a high commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, ensuring that actions meet the needs of the many, rather than just the few.

Responsibility for the future of Košice Tech industry

Does the younger generation in the region of Eastern Slovakia lack entrepreneurial spirit? Why is there a perceived local preference of being employed, rather than self-employed? Opening the subject of what can and must be done in order to assure the much needed transformation of East Slovak economy and the production of innovation and entrepreneurial growth.


The Impact of Automation and the Future of Digital Work Force

As companies digitalize and embrace automation, some jobs will be created, but many more will be lost. What are the obligation towards such displaced workers? Is there an ethical way for businesses to usher their workforces through digital disruption? How organizations combine people and machines, and operationalize their working relationship will be at the center of ethical concerns management.
