He holds a specialist degree in Comparative Politics (univ.spec.pol.) and an M.A. in Journalism. His involvement in international relations is marked by his participation in international scientific conferences, such as "Diplomacy and Communication in Times of Crisis" in Brijuni, Croatia, 2023. Filip's governmental roles have included serving as an Advisor to the Minister at the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, representing Croatia on the OECD Regulatory Policy Committee, and chairing the Working Party on Competitiveness and Growth (Better Regulation) during a Croatian Presidency of the Council of the EU. He also serves as the official representative of the Republic of Croatia on the EU's Fit for Future Platform, actively engaging in shaping future-proof regulations. Additionally, his earlier roles in media and his certification as a security manager highlight his expertise in the communication and security sectors.


Regulations as a policy instrument play a relevant role in achieving broad economic and social objectives that serve the community. However, 55% of EU SMEs have identified regulatory obstacles and administrative burdens as major challenges they encounter. This presentation will outline the various regulatory burdens SMEs deal with as they strive to comply with specific regulations in their day-to-day operations. It will also highlight how innovations in regulatory policy can improve the business climate through regulatory reform. Furthermore, the presentation will cover the models of regulatory management tools and the rationale behind transferring these tools from a supranational to a national level.

The lecture will be held in English language.
