How to use the crisis for success? Slovakia is facing several crises today - inflation, energy, military, migration, but also a crisis of political elites. But we are not the only ones who have experienced bad times. There are also those who based their success on crisis. Because it is crises that create the conditions for innovation. We are dependent on innovation. Successful countries understand this dynamic, do we in Slovakia understand it too?
