PANEL DISCUSSIONS I - Cooperation in green technologies, industry, sustainable development, science and research
Ecological innovations constitute a chance to give a major push to sustainable development accenting mitigation of production’s negative effects on the environment as well as to more effective and responsible use of natural resources. Moreover, eco-innovations also constitute a chance for enterprises: costs reduction, new growth opportunities, building a good name with the customers. This topic has been therefore gaining on importance for administrations of both China and CEEC with the aim to speed up implementation of such innovations, be it through supporting research, development and investments, or removing economical and legislative barriers and raising public awareness of the importance and purpose of eco-innovations. DISCUSSION TOPICS: 1. What is your notion of (eco-)innovations from the business perspective and what innovation examples do you see as important for your industry or enterprises in general? 2.

PANEL DISCUSSIONS III - Education and exchange of experience in culture and sport
What CEEC usually meet from Chinese culture is cuisine, documentary films about Chinese cultural heritage or tea. There is still quite a significant room for transfer of other symbols of Chinese culture, be it language, literature or calligraphy. On the other hand, transfer in the opposite direction has been spontaneously going on and there has been a huge demand for European cultural heritage, modern art and literature. The same applies for sport. “Our” summer and winter sports are becoming more and more popular in China. Football already is a phenomenon, which is followed by tennis, biathlon and recently ice hockey. DISCUSSION TOPICS: 1. How could cultural exchange and trade between China and CEEC be intensified? 2. Is it possible to effectively offer and sell audio-visual and literature works between China and CEEC? What are examples of success? 3. Can “European” sports become popular in China?
