Project
The Visegrad region has accomplished one of the highest economic growths on the EU level in recent years, and highly skilled workers can be seen as the core on which the healthy economies are being built. With local economies being significantly knowledge and innovation based, and thriving in dense urban centres, the coworking industry is undergoing rapid growth. There have been dramatic changes in how knowledge workers collaborate and work, and how these spaces attract the top talent in the Visegrad region. Not only that Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava and Budapest have seen the intense growth of coworking spaces in recent years, but these cities are becoming popularised among knowledge nomads. The year-long project deploys a transnational study that will share the insight on the correlation between the growth of coworking environments in these four Visegrad cities, and the talent attraction and retention of highly skilled individuals in the region with the active role of local coworking spaces. Investigating entrepreneur-friendly environments and human resource strategies for talent attraction within these shared and towards collaboration orientated workspaces could have a positive impact on the regional economy.
