Summary/Abstract: It was my great pleasure to be invited as a keynote speaker, and I am delighted to have been asked to provide a prologue of this highly interesting and topical international event held in Slapanice, organised by the Department of Public Economics at the University of Masaryk, Czech Republic. The event attracted many high qualitys cientific papers from a range of international speakers, including those from established and early career research academics and postgraduate and doctoral students. The level of debate during the day allowed all delegates, but especially students, to clarify conceptual, theoretical and empirical understandings of the subject of public administration and management. It was also very encouraging to see the attendance of many non-academic delegates who work in the field of policy and practice. Their involvement enabled all those present to align research with the practicalities of implementing some of the scientific findings.
