The phenomenon of the New Economy intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic. The latter one has emphasized the necessity of reshaping the very structure of the economy, reformulating business models, financial systems, and economic policies. Dissemination and widespread use of new technologies has become crucial, especially in the face of multifaceted problems of economic social, ecological, and political nature that governments, regulators, entrepreneurs, and individuals have to face in the post-pandemic world. At the same time the very technologies – especially those connected with broadly understood digitalization – changes significantly. They have provided new opportunities but have raised at the same many questions about the sustainability of such new solutions, consequences and costs they could bring.
Digitalization, among other things, provides access to an integrated network of unexploited big data with potential benefits for society, economics, and the environment. The development of smart systems connected to the internet of things can generate unique opportunities to strategically address challenges associated with the sustainable development goals (SDGs) to ensure an equitable, environmentally sustainable, and healthy society. The flexibility of digital services, however, can also lead to path dependencies that are difficult to reverse or otherwise correct unless they are discovered at an early stage. The use of a systemic risk-benefit perspective could shed light on the links and interdependencies between digital technologies and the environmental, economic, and social dimensions of sustainability.
The main aim of the conference is to share knowledge and expertise on the New Economy in the context of post-pandemic reality, technological changes, and its application to the economy, fastening digital transformation and the rising importance – also or even mainly due to climate change – of sustainable development.
The sixth edition of ICOFEP will be divided into three major tracks: economics, finance, and management.
