INESS in Prague

The capital of the Czech Republic became a detached "workplace" of INESS in the week from 22 to 27 May 2023. Up to three INESS members participated in the Europe Liberty Forum 2023 conference, organised in Prague by the Atlas Network in cooperation with the Czech Liberal Institute

This travelling conference, which is attended by hundreds of participants not only from Europe, but also from America, Asia and Africa, was again this year preceded by side events. Richard Ďurana took part in the three-day Transatlantic CEO Summit, organised by Atlas Network for 16 selected CEOs of European and American Atlas Network think tanks.

Among the topics discussed were e.g. polarisation and cancel culture, post-covid lessons and current issues in some countries. Monika Budzák attended a two-day Fundraising 360 training focused on developing collaboration with partners and funders. Starting Thursday, both of them, together with Radovan Ďuran, participated in the above-mentioned Europe Liberty Forum 2023 conference.

On Saturday, at a meeting of the Rising Tide Foundation and the Austrian Economics Center, he and other participants brainstormed about the future format, structure and challenges of the Free Market Road Show (you can read the report from the last one, hosted by INESS in April, here). 

In preparation for the international round of the Economic Olympiad, Monika Budzák met with partners from other countries. In total, more than 77,000 competitors have already joined the Olympiad worldwide this year.
