Some of the topics covered include international trade and investments, life insurance, female entrepreneurship, economic recession, and many others. Discussions were facilitated by a panel of highly knowledgeable and respected academics. Between oral and poster presentations, ICRBME offered attendees endless learning opportunities, which is one of the many reasons it received such positive feedback. Members of the academia, non-profit and research organizations, and business representatives discussed industry trends, identified common challenges, and used their diverse backgrounds to brainstorm creative solutions.The free tour of the magnificent city of Rome rounded up the experience of the participants as they got to marvel at the architecture, indulge themselves in local cuisine, and discover other aspects of the local culture.The success of 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 events makes us confident that the 8th round is a must-attend conference.
