While planning and selecting research topics for years 2016-2020, ZGWG attempts to identify new topics and problems, which can become important for the economic development from the perspective of the near future. Such an approach is a derivative of the importance we pay to discovering new knowledge and working with topics that are or can be important in the near future. For this reason, the list of research topics which we will be working on in the next years is open for expansion.
