Plenárka 2
11:00 - 12:30 Slovakia as an innovative power
Innovation is a major tool for economic growth. Not oil, not gold, not soil, but innovation. Without innovation, countries end up in the trap of a middle income, becoming eternal assembly workshops. Innovation, on the other hand, opens the door to a truly advanced economy with strong research and its own high-tech segment. The bad news for Slovakia is that we are one of the worst in innovation in the EU, far worse than, for example, the Czech Republic. The good news, however, is that other countries, which have been in much more difficult conditions, have managed to become innovative powers. So why wouldn't Slovakia be able to do it as well?

DISCUSSION
13:30 - 15:00 Modern regional education - needs, trends, innovations
Regional education is the cornerstone of a country's quality education system. The complex ecosystem of schools and school facilities deserves an increased level of attention from the state and the need for its modernization is essential. The global pandemic pointed to the unpreparedness of setting up the system and the burden of responsibility remained on teachers and school staff. What are today's needs in regional education? How do teachers themselves see his future? What technologies are used by developed countries today to increase the quality of the educational process? What innovations do we plan to introduce into education and what are the trends in education and learning? This and much more will be a discussion on the topic of Modern Regional Education - needs, trends, innovations.

DISCUSSION
13:30 - 15:00 Healthcare reform
Healthcare has to be reformed. Important part of the reform is the concept of Value Based Healthcare (VBHC). It has, in principle, three basic objectives: to improve healthcare for the patient and, in fact, his perception and experience of the care itself, to improve the health of the population and to reduce the overall cost of healthcare per capita. There is no better time to discuss this concept than at the present time, when we are launching a key health care reform in Slovakia. Is VBHC a suitable tool or way and what can it offer to our healthcare system?

DISCUSSION
15:30 - 17:00 Data as a medicine for healthcare
Data can work wonders in every area of life. Data has become a key topic over the last two decades, mainly due to the potential they hold. Various public and private organizations create, collect and analyze data to improve the quality of their services. Data for the healthcare sector represent the same benefit. Is the Slovak healthcare system ready for the "data-driven" era, are we able to collect data and evaluate it effectively? What trends does Slovakia follow and should it follow? Is the state preparing any legislative changes or projects in this area? All of these issues will be discussed in the panel Data as a medicine for healthcare.
