    Panel discussion: Industry 4.0

    Description of the discussion panel:
    According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the global number of industrial robots in operation is estimated at over 1. 5 million units, and the average annual growth rate of sales of these devices are at around 15%. At the same time, some countries of the region, including Poland, are losing their competitiveness in terms of the number of industrial robots per 10 thousand employees (according to IFR, the European average is 85 industrial robots, whereas in Poland there are only 22 robots). During the panel with the participation of Mr. Andrzej Sołdaty, the initiator of the establishment of the governmental Foundation Future Industry Platform, we will try to find an answer to the question of what model of public financing about solutions that may help accelerate changes in industry. Using the experience from the implementation of the initiative of the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology, we will look at the role that funds must play in initiating changes that improve the competitiveness of industrial production. Additionally, representatives of the Lublin University of Technology, Lublin Science and Technology Park and business are looking for answers to the questions of how and where to start changes in companies, as well as how to change local industrial ecosystems.

    Panel discussion: More about the culture: participation and vernacular culture

    Description of the panel:
    Post-modern phenomena common in the broad cultural circulation of Western Europe are still perceived in the East as unworthy of public support. Despite these difficulties, young artists and cultural animators in Eastern European countries are active on a thriving and world-class level, arousing admiration among their Western colleagues. Activities in the area of music, visual arts, new media or street art, despite the lack of institutional support, are gaining international recognition. We will try to diagnose the state of culture created vernacularly, show its most interesting achievements and work out recommendations that will allow to change harmful stereotypes influencing the evaluation of artistic activities resulting from the lack of understanding of their essence and significance in the context of global social changes taking place in the 21st century.

    Panel discussion: Building an event audience in practice

    Description of the discussion panel:
    Audience development is (in a big simplification) a marketing of art, which goes far beyond the “sale of events”. Its task is to activate community around the activities of organization, build relationships with audience and animate and develop its interests. So it is all about both increasing the size of the audience, as well as learning and building its needs. Another important factor here is to take care of the already gained audience, as well as to consciously reach for the new one. The term audience refers to all the recipients of activities of an organizations dealing with culture and art: participants, guests, readers, listeners, viewers, school and university students, partners, sponsors and so on.
    Within this panel, we want to discuss the experience of event organizers connected with building the event’s target groups and partner networks. We will also deliberate on the relationship that is built between the event concept and the city where the event is to be organized.

    Presentation: Poland-Russia: is it fatality of hostility? Towards a new picture of history. Presentation of the project and its effects.

    Description of the discussion panel:
    The panel will allow to present a publishing house for history teachers in Poland and Russia. Two volumes of this publication, prepared in cooperation with IESW with the Institute of Universal History of the Russian Academy of Sciences, published both in Polish and in Russian, concern history from the fourteenth to the nineteenth century. The whole was prepared thanks to the grant obtained at the National Science Center. Polish and Russian historians, as well as history teachers, worked together on the publishing house. Each of the texts of the publishing house was written jointly by a Polish and a Russian author. The publishing house is an important step towards a better understanding by the Russians of Polish historical sensitivity and a better understanding of Russian sensitivities by Poles.

    Panel discussion: The Eastern Partnership - the future of the Eastern policy instrument in view of the new budget and the reform of the European Union

    Description of the discussion panel:
    The aim of the panel is to initiate discussions on the future of the European Union's main Eastern policy instrument, the Eastern Partnership. It is a key project of cooperation between the European Union and the countries on its eastern border, initiated in 2008. Since then, the situation in the European Union, but also in the Eastern European countries, in particular Ukraine, which is involved in the conflict with Russia, has undergone fundamental changes. The subject of the discussion will therefore be to assess the achievements of the Eastern Partnership initiative to date, to diagnose the problems and challenges affecting the countries of the Eastern Partnership and the European Union, and to formulate perspectives for the instruments of the Eastern policy of the European Union, especially the above initiative.

    Panel discussion: Migrants at school

    Description of the discussion panel:
    Migration, whether related to education, job search or as a result of armed conflicts or natural disasters, has become a natural phenomenon in Europe. They are naturally accompanied by the appearance in schools of children from another education system, or, as in the case of Ukraine, of children expelled from war zones and occupied. The UK has around 25 000 pupils per year from the new EU Member States. Today in schools in Lublin there are several hundred students of immigrants, including two classes in a school for children and young people with hearing loss and hearing loss. There are more than 2. 5 thousand migrant pupils in Kraków. The number of pupils from other education systems is growing rapidly. The largest number of Ukrainians in Polish schools is also Vietnamese. In recent decades, many students from Korea and refugees from Chechnya have passed through Lublin's schools. The rapidly growing number of students from other education systems and from our schools continuing their education abroad surprised schools not only in our region. Teachers praise the fact that new pupils are diligent and ambitious, but schools are also poorly prepared to deal with pupils with poor language skills. The Panel Migrants at School is to be an opportunity to discuss standards and practice of education of migrant children, including refugees. We want to share Poland's experiences as well as consider how the countries of the region should prepare for student migration. Together we answer the question: How to prepare our schools for migrant pupils and how to adapt our education systems to prepare them for schooling in another country.

    Panel discussion: Marketing communication of tourist services

    Description of the discussion panel:
    Are marketing activities only a domain of large corporations? Are own logo and leaflets enough to promote one’s services? What does it mean to be consistent with the brand? Do cities need their own brand? During the third panel discussion within "Tourism" thematic area, we will address the above and many other issues. We will discuss what day-to-day building and implementing brand are based on what are we afraid of and how long does it take to move from the very idea to the graphic design and commitment.

    Panel discussion: Statistical information as a development factor

    Description of the discussion panel:
    Information plays an extremely important role in the functioning of modern economy and modern society, and is also widely used in the area of international cooperation. At present, hardly any initiative of an international nature can be taken unless it is based on knowledge of reliable and comparable data. Thus, the particular importance of statistical information is related to its role as a factor stimulating development by ensuring access to reliable, reliable and objective information. The aim of the panel is to discuss the growing demand for data on socio-economic phenomena and processes in cross-border and international configurations, as well as the challenges related to the need to ensure international comparability of research and statistical data.

    Panel discussion: Culinary dimenssion of trips

    Description of the discussion panel:
    In recent years, an increased interest in tourism based on cuisine and culinary has become noticed. Of course, it is not an enough incentive to to take a trip, but yrt is often one of the main factors that builds satisfaction of a stay. Television stations broadcast variety of programs on culinary tourism. Bookstores are full of culinary books and magazines, while blogs on cooking are breaking traffic records in the Internet. There are also more and more culinary workshops and similar events to available attend. In spite of the growing, far and wide propagated fashion for regional products and return to old Polish flavors, spices and recipes, still only few places can be perceived as local tourist attraction based on culinary tourism. This means a place considered as a must-visit in order to follow the atmosphere of the city, its historical and modern heritage.
    The subject of the third panel discussion within the "Tourism" thematic area is devoted to good practices of building the concept of gastronomic facilities referring to the "place of its origin" effect. During the deliberations, we will wonder if the culinary routes are indeed popular among tourists. We will also tackle following issues: Who is the participant of culinary events? Is it possible to stand out in the market by promoting local traditions? What is the barrier and what is the potential for development?

    Panel discussion: 100. anniversary of regaining independence: past or future?

    Description of the discussion panel:
    The year 1918 brought fundamental changes on the map of Europe. In our region, independent states, including Poland and Lithuania, were established, in Russia the Bolsheviks established their power, while the attempts to create an independent Ukraine and Belarus ended fiasco. The centenary of independence celebrated in Poland is an opportunity to reflect on the past as well as the present and the future. History still affects the contemporary relations of the region's states. Sometimes it is an aggravating influence, and at the same time it builds a common identity. Panellists will therefore reflect on the benefits and abuses of history, and will also attempt to diagnose the present day.
