The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe. The grantee is University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Faculty of Economics.The aim of the project is to compare the readiness of the V4 countries to the consequences of population aging.The Faculty of Economics continues in project H2020 POWER4BIO: emPOWERing regional stakeholders for realising the full potential of European BIOeconomyThe POWER4BIO project aims at increasing the capacity of regional and local policy makers and stakeholders to structure their bioeconomy and to support the emergence of a thriving bio‐based sector. Adequate knowledge and best practice exchange and networking within and among regions, across the EU.

The Faculty of Economics continues with solving four projects supported by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic and two projects supported by The Czech Science Foundation (GAČR). 
The Faculty is involved in solving the project Diversification of the Impact of the Bioeconomy on Strategic Documents of the Forestry-Wood Sector as a Basis for State Administration and the Design of Strategic Goals by 2030 supported by The Ministry of Agriculture. The main objective of this project is to assess the wider strategic context of forest bio-economics and to formulate strategic objectives and recommendations in the conditions of the Czech Republic. The proposed strategic objectives and recommendations of the strategy will be based primarily on the results of scientific research and on the views, recommendations, and experiences within the European Union and the Czech Republic. Given the time frame of current strategies (such as the Czech Republic 2030), these targets will be formulated by 2030.

The Faculty of Economics organizes or co-organizes a number of scientific conferences/events/workshops according to the research program. Topics closely connect with economics, company management, and socio-economic factors of regional development. Conferences may broaden the network of our scientists and help them to make themself and their research visible to a broad audience.

The International Scientific Conference INPROFORUM is a traditional event held by the Faculty of Economics, the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (USB). It is focused on the research achievements in the fields of Innovations, Enterprises, Regions, and Organizations. Aim of the Conference is to respond to the symptoms in the current phase of the business cycle, not only the economy. Discussion can be led to possible causes and impacts of fluctuations in all fields, for example economic, business, social, legal, spatial, institutional, environmental, etc.
