The Institute for Politics and Society invites you to a seminar working group for research, development and innovation. The seminar will be held under the auspices of Ing. Ivana Pilného, Chairman of the Economic Committee of the Chamber of Deputies.
The quality of research and development primarily depends on the ability of those who are engage in research to constantly speak about it. They discuss the lack of skilled people, the low quality of graduates from higher education, and a lack of orientation for young people in fields that are essential for the functioning of the economy. Professional orientation and the acquisition of relevant knowledge; however, does not only depend on universities — it starts in primary school. And it depends on the quality of teachers.
The seminar is designed to discuss educational requirements in a time when technical and technological means are changing. The new technical possibilities are changing the entire society.
