The aim of the activities of the Centre of Excellence for Cybereconomy (CEC) is to develop and maintain new value-added research that provides theoretically grounded new knowledge for the 21st century economic changes of "Industry 4.0" and beyond, which can be used in practice by businesses and other stakeholders and contributes to the promotion of relevant domestic policymaking by analysing domestic and international trends.
Research – CEC's main research areas are: the economic and social implications of the application of artificial intelligence or robots, new business models, analysis of economic and social processes, industry processes, and promoting the preparedness of the domestic economy for change by exploring global processes and their potential domestic implications. In their work, they seek to combine macro-meso-micro level analyses and explore the interactions between them.
Dissemination – In addition to research, the CEC team is active in applying to national and international research calls, regularly organises conferences, and professional workshops and participates in prestigious scientific and educational events with speakers. In that way, the centre actively contributes to the stimulation of relations between the academic and business sectors, as well as the flow and the utilisation of knowledge.
