For the past few decades, the EBR Journal has published high-quality theoretical, empirical, applied or policy-oriented research papers from various fields of economics and business. We aim to continue promoting high-quality research in the areas covered by the journal, as well as to offer annual conferences that serve as a regional forum for academic discussion of research findings.
The last two decades have been marked by significant changes in the economic, social and political environment, which have and will continue to alter the “beaten paths” and challenge organisations and individuals to find new solutions to ever-emerging challenges on the way towards a sustainable future. Following the 2008 crisis, the global economy again gained growth momentum, albeit amidst the increasing tensions in global trade and international relations. The growth was spurred by the introduction of a series of new technologies, which mark the 4th industrial revolution, as well as growing optimism following the crisis. However, COVID-19 and the related disruptions revealed the fragilities in numerous aspects of our economic as well as other realities and led to a sharp downturn in the economic activity, while shaking up a number of other social systems as well. The war in Ukraine is just the last of several violent attempts to resolve conflicts. The extent of the human tragedy, as well as the global effects of war, will have a profound effect on the global economy and consumers. And amidst these turbulent changes, the European economies are searching for answers on how to ensure a high level of well-being for its ageing citizens by growing smart and growing green while facing the many challenges in the global economy.
We cordially invite academics, researchers as well as postgraduate students, irrespective of their institutional or geographical affiliation, to submit theoretical, empirical, applied, or policy-oriented research papers addressing the challenges of societies, corporations, and individuals related to the key conference topics, as well as other relevant economic and business topics.

Conference format. The conference will be held over one day and will be divided into parallel sessions by subject area. Each session will consist of at least 3 papers, with the presentation, the discussant’s remarks, and an open discussion.
