CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION
In today’s context the world is experiencing a wide variety of issues, of which some have been
long lasting and are considered a global phenomenon. In the current era of globalization fuelled
by the rapid growth of new technology, it is widely acknowledged that the ability to innovate is a
significant driver of competitiveness for entrepreneurs, teams, organizations, industries,
countries, and economies of all sizes. Competition is increasingly forged not just to achieve
financial performance, but also to deliver social and environmental outcomes for the present and
future. Within this context of global competition, innovative models, strategies, policies,
processes, and practices become ever more important in creating value for sustainable growth
and development at various levels within firms, industries, countries, and economies, and also
across borders in company networks, industrial clusters, and economic and regional blocs.
The last decades have acknowledged a growing integration of economies and societies
worldwide. There has been an increase of interdependence among countries in trade, finance,
people and ideas. The development of information technology and advancement of
telecommunication have facilitated both resources and output mobility, improving further
efficiency at which economies operate. However, the international trade arena and
competitiveness lead to increased pressure for the policy makers and the independent economic
agents in both developed and developing countries. On one side, there is the importance of the
public policies and institutions to creating a sustainable and dynamic environment in a time when
trade liberalization policies and moderate capital control have changed the role of state in the

global economy. On the other side, there is the response of consumers and producers in making
efficient choices under the perspective of widen possibilities and reshaped constraints.
The changing conjecture of the last two decades around the world has led to a restructuring of
the growth potentials and international market roles of countries, and economic actors and
economic decision processes have evolved considerably. Our conference is focusing on
evaluation of the last two decades from a multidimensional point of view. Thus generating a
platform in which the economic, social and policy transformations of the last twenty years are
debated will be vision enhancing for both policy formulation for tomorrow and understanding
the current state of affairs.
The conference aims at bringing together in one venue academics, researchers and all the
interested parties in the field, with the purpose of elaborating at a theoretical, empirical and
policy-making perspective the above. We invite you to submit papers dealing with the challenges
