The World Economy Research Institute (WERI) together with
the Jean Monnet Chair for European Integration at the SGH Warsaw School of
Economics (Poland) are pleased to announce the 14th Annual Conference on
Innovation and Competitiveness. The conference will also be an occasion to
celebrate the 70th birthday of the Collegium`s distinguished Professor Elżbieta Kawecka-Wyrzykowska.
In contemporary economy, we observe the growing
importance of service sector, with the simultaneous expansion of service
functions in industry and agriculture. In many respects, the traditional
boundaries between services and manufacturing are becoming less clear. On the
one hand, there is the industrialisation of services and, on the other hand, an
increasing emphasis on the service component in manufacturing activities, which
is often linked to the development of new technologies. The above observations
indicate the growing importance of the service sector for socio-economic
development. Therefore, the following question arises: how may smart
manufacturing and services contribute to a competitive advantage in
contemporary world economy? The World Economy Research Institute’s 14th Annual
Conference on competitiveness will seek to answer this question.
