            Productivity, efficiency and performance

            Innovation, entrepreneurship, risk and uncertainty

            Economic impact of the visitor economy

            Employment, labour mobility and gender

            Corporate social responsibility and governance 

            Sharing economy and destination competitiveness

            Decision making, behavioural economics and competitiveness

            Competitiveness in times of crisis

            Competitiveness and sustainability
