Druhá šanca pre naše regióny
9:10 - 10:50 A second chance for our regions (hall London)
Developed countries are able to address their regional disparities; less developed countries have significant regional disparities. How should Slovakia deal with the fact that some of our regions are only slowly catching up with the developed regions, and why is it important for the whole economy that this catching up is accelerated in a fundamental way. How do we need to change the way we think about regional development? How can workable local economic strategies kick-start the economy? Is Slovakia ready to discuss the creation of functional regions? Or even whether we will see a reform of public administration, find out in the discussion Second chance for our regions.

11:30 - 12:15 The digital future (hall London)
Digital transformation is a priority topic in most developed countries of the world. The states are not only looking at how the state itself is being transformed, but the emphasis is on the digitization of local governments and companies. Digital transformation is the way to higher efficiency and productivity in all segments of the company's operation. Without digitization, growth and further development cannot be guaranteed. What is the situation in Slovakia and what is the situation in the Czech Republic? Are we succeeding in digitally transforming our society and what can we mutually inspire with the Czech Republic? In what ways do we have successful examples of digital transformation in Slovakia and where, on the contrary, do we need to work?

Evolution in Eurofunds: 20 years of Eurofunds in Slovakia?
16:45 - 17:45 ITAPA OPEN TALK: Why is a revolution in Eurofunds inevitable? (hall London I+II)
We have been using European Union resources intensively since our accession in 2004. The most important public investments, which the EU funds undoubtedly are, have evolved over two decades and have become an everyday part of life in Slovakia. How the evolution of the EU funds has looked like and in which direction the EU funds should move, we will discuss this with experts on the EU funds. The new government is coming up with bold plans to revolutionise the EU funds. What should this revolution look like? How will it help our towns, municipalities and entrepreneurs? Why do we need a systemic and fundamental change in the way we look at the management of the EU funds? And what impact will these changes have on the landscape and the development of our regions? What opportunities do repayable forms of aid and financial instruments bring? What are the unique examples where the repayable form works better than the non-repayable form?
