The global pandemic overshadowed every other policy issue in 2020. Although it is still far from being over, it already has a profound impact on the European economy and society. The most important question is, how will the policymakers and business leaders respond to this crisis? What fiscal, monetary and business actions can resuscitate the European economy? What impact will it have on the workforce and business models? It has become clear that companies that had embraced digitalisation are far more flexible and better adjusted to function in a disrupted world. Will this serve as a catalyst for further digitalisation? And how will this crisis impact climate policy? Will it be moved to the sidelines or will the positive environmental impact of the pandemic serve as an inspiration?


By utilizing the traits of strong leadership and bold vision to navigate us through these fragmented times, GLOBSEC Tatra Summit holds to its tradition of presenting a prominent guest with the GLOBSEC European Award. Recognised at a high-profile Gala Dinner, the guest of honour will deliver an inspiring Annual Speech on Europe offering valuable insights on the challenges which will shape Europe’s future in the years ahead. The GLOBSEC Business Award recognises extraordinary European business leaders who made significant contributions to economic growth, sustainability and competitiveness. Through this award, we aim to show our utmost support, respect and admiration towards the business community and their contribution to upholding the European values on the global stage.
