Abstract

Almost each country has potential for ensuring the sustainability of its economy if it avails itself of the opportunities offered by a nationally customized green economy strategy. To move towards a green economy, it will, however, have to introduce innovative technologies, techniques and processes. In particular, it will have to modernize its obsolete production and transport infrastructures and construction and cultivation methods. Green technologies can also contribute to the green economy because they have the potential to create new business opportunities, markets and jobs. This paper i) reviews the main environmental challenges and opportunities for the greening of the Košice region economy; ii) assesses the country’s innovation policies and the challenges and opportunities for the introduction of green technologies; iii) provide policy recommendations on adopting and applying innovative green technologies more efficiently. The strategy for adopting and applying innovative green technologies, also in Košice region, should carefully consider the current status of policy measures, challenges and opportunities which the country faces. Success depends not only on the improvement of each individual sector in region, but also on how these separate elements interact. Therefore, a wide range of consultations and interactions with stakeholders, such as the government authorities, business community, civil society, academics, researchers, scientists, financial institutions, etc., are essential to facilitate this interaction.
