Continuing its longlasting collaboration and partnership with the Free Market Road Show (FMRS) Team and being a proud member of the growing FMRS Family, Sarajevo School of Science and Technology (SSST) is hosting another Free Market Road Show Conference. 

The Free Market Road Show (FMRS) 2018 is taking place on Wednesday, 9 May 2018, at 11:00 am, at SSST, Hrasnička cesta 3a. Ilidža, Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina.  

Under the general topic of European values, in cities across Europe and beyond, the Free Market Road Show 2018 is bringing together opinion leaders, policy experts, scholars, officials, diplomats and other interested parties to discuss the core values upon which the modern society in Europe was built and which are now being tested.This is why this year's FMRS is engaging in the discussion on the common shared values in Europe and particularly how younger generations can unite and participate in this important discussion.

The new talk and debate format offers a chance for an open discussion on these values and problems, allowing arguments to be challenged from different points of view.

By challenging all participants with controversial arguments, the 2018 Free Market Road Show aims to prepare the ground for a third way, apart from the offered status quo and populism.


- Agenda

The FMRS 2018 at SSST consists of two panels and covers both global and local perspectives of the general topic of this year's FMRS. The first panel is held in English and hosts international speakers and prominent guests: Dr. Barbara Kolm, director of the Austrian Economics Center and president of the Friedrich A. Hayek Institute in Vienna and Mr. Alvino-Mario Fantini, journalist and editor-in-chief of The European Conservative. The second panel is held in local languages and hosts local experts who are focusing on the topic of fiscal devaluation, which has been identified as the local hot topic for this year's FMRS at SSST. It is a pleasure to host even the Prime Minister of Federation Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Fadil Novalić.
