Central European Network for Sustainable and Innovative Economy

Sustainable Development and Innovative Economy

The network is aimed at building awareness of the need to introduce radical changes in lifestyle and the methods of doing business through the exchange of ideas between researchers and students of economics in Central and Southern Europe – a region where the level of environmental awareness and concern is generally low.

A very vital and urgent, and at the same time poorly recognized by human kind problem, is the negative impact of dominant type of the contemporary economic activity on the environment. Numerous entities business models are based on predatory usage of resources and carbon dioxide emission, what in turn leads to catastrophic climate change. As a result, large tracts of the Earth become uninhabitable. These changes significantly contribute to mass migration and social destabilization in general. It is necessary to introduce and disseminate a new paradigm of economic activity, based on the efficient use of resources, preferably a circular economy. It is necessary to research and disseminate management models that will allow to implement this paradigm. And this is what the proposed Central European Network for Sustainable and Innovative Economy is supposed to serve: building awareness of the need to introduce radical changes in the ways of doing business and lifestyle through the exchange of views between economic researchers and students of economics in a region where the level of environmental awareness is generally low. This is to be achieved by the exchange of scientists, doctoral students and students, thanks to which all participants will have the opportunity to learn how the sustainable development postulate is implemented in teaching at partner universities, learn about the best educational practices in this field, as well as jointly create new teaching programmes and conduct international research on sustainable development and innovations supporting a sustainable economy.

Teaching and training in fundamental and applied geosciences within the geologically unique Alpine-Carpathian-Balkan-Dinaride Mountain area:

The diversification of teaching topics and methods, strengthening the interdisciplinary approach, and the increase of the scientific quality are the main goals of this network. This is done by 18 universities from 10 countries, with more than 1500 individual mobilities realized so far. The network continuously succeeds to contribute to the development of geosciences in the region. Its relevance in many societal aspects: e.g., environmental problems, water resources and geo-hazards; makes this CEEPUS network a particularly valuable cooperation, regarding education, research and awareness in this region.

What our scholars have to say
Prof Dr. József Gál
Vice-Dean of University of Szeged
CEEPUS scholarships open the horizons for our students and faculty staff to countries we do not necessarily know enough about. In addition to the classical semester mobilities, they also provide an excellent opportunity to gain short-term professional experience. Incoming teachers and students add colour to our academic year and provide useful information about their country, that can be of great value to future engineers.
Peter Purg, PhD
Professor, University of Nova Gorica
I had the occasion to work with architecture students who normally don’t deal with media and contemporary arts in their study programme. CEEPUS allows me to think innovative – I get money and time to go there and to focus on something new and do something new.
Nicholas Chang
Exchange student in Szeged
The very warm welcome that I was received by at the faculty, as well as by the National CEEPUS Office, made me feel like an important guest and not just a number.
