Professor Ioannis Theodossiou of the Business School was recently invited to join a team of academic and industry moderators as part of the first ASECU teleconference.
The Association of Economic Universities of South and Eastern Europe and the Black Sea Region (ASECU) anticipates that the pandemic crisis we are facing may hasten and intensify (rather than generating) the evolution of underlying structural, systemic bottlenecks and inefficiencies. The purpose of the conference was to reveal and explain the systemic crises triggered by contemporary pandemia, as well as working out strategic and tactical solutions for eliminating the damage caused and turning the responses towards sustainable development for humanity and the planet.
The conference was segmented into three session focusing on Macroeconomics, Business and the Societal Aspects of the Pandemic Crisis which Professor Ioannis Theodossiou was moderating.
