The enclosed list of workskhop subjects (see link workshop programme) contained the subject areas specified in the curricula of „Micro and Macroeconomy”, which is a compulsory subject taught by Dr Piotr Tomski and Dr Marcin Sitek for  „Mechanical Engineering”, „Manufacturing Management”  and „Environmental Engineering” students. Among the novel elements of the workshop were the problems of  industrial location and regional economic development, which were treated  from both a theoretical and empirical perspective. One of the  key parts of the course was given by Prof. N. Reid as the open lecture invited by Prof. Arnold Pabian, Dean of Management Faculty for all students of Management.    The workshop contained 25 hours of lectures, summarized by Case Study tutorials.
