Cracow Summer School Workshop 2010

  1. 1. Cracow Summer School Workshop Poland, July 2010 Current Economic Developments & Policy Challenges facing CE Europe Invitation The Growth Research Unit [GRU] at the Cracow University of Economics is a group of international academics and/or policy makers specialised on the behavioural variance of capitalist systems in the transforming economies of CE Europe and SE Asia. Our strength areas of teaching and research interests are focused on the strategic determinants of growth and the extent of their impact in influencing economic and social change. We would like to invite international students to join our summer school programme in Southern Poland, which will run for seven days and which is made up of three specialised workshops and includes a built in company field trip. The three workshop modules that will be provided are: Growth & its Determinants, Finance & Banking and Trade & Investment. Each of these modules will draw closely on related fields such as welfare distribution, labour market change, public & private finance, policy, foreign direct investment, its location and its impact on the development of regional production and trade. Each module will run for a period of two days and has been designed to provide students with a comprehensive insight into the development and operation of these areas of economic activity in the former socialist countries of CE Europe, while at the same time addressing some of the key decisions and policy challenges that these countries will be facing in the years ahead. This three-part programme integrates a company field trip, which will enable students to gain an on-the- ground insight as well as some orientation as to the scale of economic progress achieved to date. Optional Visits In addition to the seven-day workshop, students can also choose to join one or both of our optional excursions. The first of these is an afternoon trip to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, which will take place on Friday July 9th before the workshops programme gets underway on the Saturday. Students may also opt to join a planned weekend trip to Zakopane in the Polish mountains - a resort that attracts ski enthusiasts in the winter and which is popular for tourists, hikers and sports enthusiasts in the summer. This trip has been organised to take place at the end of the programme, departing Cracow on Saturday 17th July and returning on Monday 19th. Please remember that these trips are purely optional and are not included in the main programme. We hope to have the pleasure of meeting you!
