European integration process has given rise to institutional, economic, political and cultural cooperation among countries as well as their integration in a single economic system. At the same time efforts are made to preserve national identity of the member countries as well as their regional diversity. Recognition of the diversity of regions, their distinct characteristics and comparative advantages in a unified Europe is of utmost importance for the accession of the Republic of Croatia to the European Union.
The tourism has been recognized as a strategic strongpoint in the Adriatic part of Croatia, whereas the Panonnian region of Croatia does not have a clear vision of that. It is therefore vital to explore and determine the underlying guidelines for the development. Since they have always been connected with the practical side of life, the polytechnics are the institutions responsible for the future development. In the last twelve years since the establishment of the Polytechnic in Pozega, the development has been focusing on education and the application of knowledge in practice, which has distinguished the Polytechnic as an initiator and an actual development factor.

In order to achieve this objective, the organisation of the 2nd International Conference entitled "Vallis Aurea" is underway. It will serve as a permanent platform for an interdisciplinary approach to resolving issues pertaining to regional development. It covers various areas ranging from theory to practical application and continued promotion based on inventiveness and regional particularities.

Official conference language is Croatian and English.

Conference organisators are Polytehnic in Pozega, Croatia and DAAAM International Vienna, Austria
