International Conference on Entrepreneurial Competencies in a Changing World (ECCW 2020)

The ECCW 2020 conference took place at a time of restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason, the online conference method was used via the ZOOM application. Thanks to digital technologies, the conference was attended by representatives of organizing institutions, scientists from several countries and representatives of business practice. The conference administration team was present at the ITB premises in České Budějovice (CZ), from where it ensured the smooth running of the conference.

The conference was organized within the project Stabilization and Development of SMEs in Rural Areas (TL01000349) with support of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic.
