In his opening remarks, the Rector said that today and in the future, are the days when globalization and disruption are part of everyday life. Our pendulum is moving in change on a very large scale, dynamics of uncertainty, complex and sometimes even ambiguous situations. "In that context, research can be a 'weapon' to enter the battlefield. Research involving policy makers and stakeholders. Research involving fellow academics, business circles, the community as beneficiaries and the government as the regulator. Research that doesn't just stop at thoughts and ideas, but is designed to have positive and constructive economic value for all parties," said the Rector.
The Rector hopes that this forum can become a discussion space for fellow academics, observers, reviewers and of course stakeholders related to post-pandemic Green Economy issues.
