Aim of the Conference

The aim of the conference is to disclose and share the Hungarian and international experiences related to local innovation as well as to the facilitation of effective operation of local governments. The event focuses on Central and Eastern Europe, especially on the Visegrád Group. Considering the challenges of our joint past and present, it is advisable to learn from each other. I believe that the participants of the conference will find a theme, in which they can share their own experiences and expand their knowledge too.
