Czechia and Germany - Ready to Face Tomorrows's Challenges Together?
By invitation after application

In an ever-evolving global landscape, Czechia and Germany find themselves standing at a juncture where cooperation and strategic alignment are imperative to confront the multifaceted challenges that lie ahead. Both countries boast robust economies with a significant reliance on the automotive industry, making them deeply interdependent in the face of economic disruptions and shifts in market demand. As stalwart democracies, they share common values and commitments to the principles of freedom and the rule of law, but also face internal and external pressures that test the strength of their democratic institutions. Embedded in the European context and geopolitical upheavals, the framework for action and cooperation demands a flexible approach. Additionally, the rapid pace of digitalization poses a formidable challenge, requiring both countries to adapt to technological advancements while ensuring cybersecurity and data protection. Moreover, the urgent need to combat climate change places a shared responsibility on both countries, as they strive to transition towards more sustainable and environmentally conscious industrial practices.

How can both countries balance their economic interests with their commitment to sustainability? Will both countries be able to cope with the risks stemming from dependence on third countries in supply chains? How can Czechia and Germany collaborate to enhance education and skills development in their countries to meet the demands of the 21st-century workforce and address the challenges posed by rapid technological advancements and digitalization? How can both countries contribute and benefit to and from the European community, as well concerning the European elections 2024? How will both countries deal with the geopolitical challenges arising from the aggressive policies of Russia and China?
