Evaluation of a Set of Measures to Stimulate the Country's Economy After the Exposure to the COVID-19 Virus: Lithuanian casePublicationIn the wake of the economic changes brought about by the global COVID-19 pandemic, both states and organizations unifying them, have taken urgent action to mitigate the socio-economic impact and support economic recovery. Nevertheless, not all designed and implemented emergency measures have achieved the desired results. The purpose of the research is therefore to examine the effectiveness of these measures. Due to the limited amount of data, time period, and other conditions, only Pearson and Spearman correlation analysis was used to achieve the goal. Summarizing the results of the study, it can be stated that the biggest influence on the country's economy in the short term was the choice of measures to stimulate the country's economy after COVID-19 virus, rather than the restriction of movement or the number of COVID-19 patients. However, the wage subsidy used by most countries in the world has been identified as the best means of stabilizing the economy in the short term. 1 The emotional engagement of climate experts is related to their climate change perceptions and coping strategiesPublicationresearch article ;Böhm, GiselaJournal of risk research. Abingdon : Taylor and Francis, 2020, vol. 00, no. 00., p. 1-17The study aimed to reveal the role of emotions in Lithuanian climate experts’ perceptions of climate change (i.e., their beliefs about the causes and risk perceptions of climate change) and fill the gap in scientific knowledge about the coping strategies that climate experts tend to employ in order to deal with climate-change-related emotions. To investigate climate experts’ emotional reactions to climate change, we applied a four-factor model comprising morality-based other- and self-related as well as consequence-based retrospective and prospective emotions. The results indicated that the climate experts showed great variation in their emotional reactions; two clusters of experts emerged–those who were emotionally engaged and those who were disengaged with regard to climate change. Emotionally engaged experts were more likely than their disengaged counterparts to emphasize anthropogenic climate change, to believe that the consequences of climate change would appear both locally and globally, and to consider the consequences to be uncontrollable, dreadful, and morally unacceptable. Emotionally engaged and disengaged climate experts agreed on the extent to which they evaluated climate change as societally disputed. Additionally, experts working in the government were more emotionally engaged with climate change issues than academics. Finally, in order to deal with climate-change-related emotions, emotionally engaged experts were more likely to invoke problem- and emotion-focused coping strategies, whereas the two groups of experts did not differ in their tendencies to avoid climate change issues. 1WOS© IF 2.583WOS© AIF 2.496Scopus© SNIP 1.383
- research articleJournal of management and training for industries. Kitakyushu : Institute of Industrial Applications Engineers, 2019, vol. 6, no. 2., p. 1-16This paper reviews and analyses the role of power and culture management theories on the implementation of human-centric innovation ecosystems in organizations and corporations from an institutional aspect. The practical aspects and characteristics of management theories paradigms are discussed, for highlighting the development of specific-based strategies that an organization adapts in order to harness the right kind of talent or human capital to foster and support innovation ecosystems. The relevant literature findings are organized in three sections, namely the evolution of management theories paradigms leading to the development of innovation management theory, the role of organizational power and culture in the fostering an innovation-based system and environment internally, and to a greater extent, the impact of this power and culture on the development of human-centric innovation ecosystems. The findings reveal that rather than focusing on the technological and financial aspects of innovation ecosystems, power and culture within the organizational context essentially contributes to the extent to which innovation is properly supported and implemented, the changing dynamics involved and actors in those ecosystems. It is, therefore, important to choose the culture of the entrepreneurial model methodology, best practices and techniques and approaches in order to influence ecosystems found in organizations within the domain of management theory.

;Yatsenko, OlhaМіжнародна економічна політика. Київ : ДВНЗ Київський національний економічний університет імені Вадима Гетьмана, 2018, № 1(28)., p. 1-31Розкрито питання двосторонньої торговельної інтеграції внаслідок реалізації поглибленої і всеохоплюючої зони вільної торгівлі між Україною та ЄС, яка дала змогу країнам перейти від партнерства і співробітництва до політичної асоціації та економічної інтеграції. Охарактеризовано ретроспективу становлення двосторонньої співпраці та осно- вні положення четвертого розділу «Торгівля і питання, пов’язані з торгівлею». Встановле- но, що торговельно-економічні відносини в рамках реалізації Зони вільної торгівлі з ЄС створюють низку переваг та загроз. Доведено, що наслідком торговельної інтеграції стала модернізація торгової політики України та визначено її основні домінантами: зростання то- варообороту між країнами та зростання частки європейських країн в структурі зовнішньої торгівлі України; зменшення ввізних мит; покращення умов доступу до ринку; гармоніза- ція законодавства; встановлення тарифних квот; істотне зниження нетарифних бар’єрів у торгівлі; домовленості країн стосовно удосконалення роботи митниць; гармонізації системи технічного регулювання; системи стандартизації, метрології, оцінки відповідності та рин- кового нагляду; санітарних та фітосанітарних заходів; посилення захисту прав інтелектуа- льної власності. Здійснено прогнозування та моделювання зовнішньоторговельного обороту між Україною та ЄС товарами в цілому, та товарами АПК зокрема, на основі використан- ня гравітаційної моделі. Зпрогнозовано позитивну динаміку зростання товарообороту вна- слідок реалізації ПВЗВТ між Україною та ЄС. Визначено, що для агропродовольчих това- рів сценарій більш оптимістичний, що пояснюється домінуванням торговельних преференцій для цієї галузі. Обґрунтовано зростання залежності економічного зростання України від експорту.

;Arribas, Iván ;García, Fernando ;Guijarro, Francisco ;Oliver, JavierInternational journal of strategic property management. Vilnius : Technika, 2016, vol. 20, no. 1., p. 77-87Mass appraisal, or the automatic valuation of a large number of real estate assets, has attracted the attention of many researchers, who have mainly approached this issue employing traditional econometric models such as Ordinary Least Squares (OLS). However, this method does not consider the hierarchical structure of the data and therefore assumes the unrealistic hypothesis of the independence of the individuals in the sample. This paper proposes the use of the Hierarchical Linear Model (HLM) to overcome this limitation. The HLM also gives valuable information on the percentage of the variance error caused by each level in the hierarchical model. In this study HLM was applied to a large dataset of 2,149 apartments, which included 17 variables belonging to two hierarchical levels: apartment and neighbourhood. The model obtained high goodness of fit and all the estimated variances of the parameters in HLM were lower than those calculated by OLS. It can be concluded as well that no further neighbourhood variables need be added to the model to improve the goodness of fit, since almost all the residual variance can be attributed to the first hierarchical level of the model, the apartment level.

Vilnius : Technika, 2012, vol. 18, iss. 4., p. 567-587It is the intention of the European Union to create a growing and sustainable European economy by 2020, a much more moderate target than the 2010 target of becoming the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world. This intention has to be supported by an adequate Optimization and Decision Support System. Therefore, MULTIMOORA is proposed. MULTIMOORA is a quantitative method, which compares multiple and optimum objectives, expressed in different units, as much as possible on a nonsubjective basis. In opposition to similar methods MULTIMOORA does not need normalization, being based on dimensionless measures. Importance of an objective can eventually be given by the stakeholders concerned. MULTIMOORA is composed of three approaches: Ratio System, Reference Point and Multiplicative Form Methods, all of the same importance and each controlling each other. Twenty two objectives, 10 originating from statistics and 12 from statistics and forecasts, important for the future, characterize the 27 EU-Countries economies as a preparation for 2020. Which of these countries are the best prepared for 2020? A Dominance Theory, summarizing the three obtained ordinal numbers per country, ranks the 27 countries for that purpose.

Principles for each type of investment management have been newly formulated; the factors affecting the level of investment performance have been analyzed in detail as well. Management principles of main cash flow, capital and mixed investments have been revealed, taking into account the factors affecting the influence of the usefulness of investments. Both the impact of indeterminacy for the management of particular types of investments and opportunities to respond to this indeterminacy provided has also been analyzed. On the grounds of the study accomplished, the analytical indicators to evaluate and compare the profitability of each type of investment have been improved. Application of common knowledge operator and disruptive thinking perspective in case of mobile operating system marketPublicationresearch articleJournal of international sientific publication : economy & business. [Elektroninis išteklius].- 1 elektron. opt. diskas. Sofija : Info Invest, 2010, vol. 4, pt. 3., p. 521-531Paper is a case study of mobile operating systems market, where mobile operating system makers share a distributed knowledge of mobile operating system basics and different levels of information about consumer expectations. According to the basic logics, it is reasonable to expect that if it is commonly known that a choice A is better than a choice B, any agent i will prefer the choice instead of an inferior one. In case the mobile operating system makers some chose a completely different outcome which is rather based on disruptive thinking instead of common knowledge. Development of architecture of embedded decision support systems for risk evaluation of transportation of dangerous goodsPublication[Sprendimų paramos sistemos įterptinės architektūros plėtotė pavojingųjų krovinių transportavimo rizikai vertinti]research article ;Dzindzalieta, RamūnasTechnological and economic development of economy. Vilnius : Technika, 2010, vol. 16, no. 4., p. 654-671The combination of web service protocols (e.g. SOAP) with session initialization protocol (SIP) enables P2P accessibility by introducing sensor’s listener and context retriever as programming components in the developing communication architecture of servers and users. We are using an appropriate interface structure (components, scenarios) for service control, and integrate data-mining, knowledge-based techniques for recognizing a concrete situation of the moving object. The integration of distributed information systems and the means of wireless communication systems (i.e., programming components, protocols, sensors, and devices) are needed. The paper describes an approach of designing the architecture of the system that uses wireless technologies for monitoring dynamic objects with implementation of probabilistic methods for evaluation of risk of possible types of scenarios of accident events which can occur in transportation of dangerous goods. Some wireless protocols are used in establishing the object’s geographical coordinates, monitoring and fixing the state behavior of the moving dangerous transportation objects. Personal finance risk managementPublicationresearch articleJournal of international sientific publication : economy & business [Elektroninis išteklius].- 1 elektron. opt. diskas. Sofija : Info Invest, 2010, vol. 4, pt. 3., p. 551-561The article presents an analysis of a relevant problem of the contemporary global finance system, i.e. personal finance risk management. The current financial crisis has unveiled the incorrect financial management strategies. They are especially evident when referring to the perception of risks in personal finance area, and the ability to properly manage the aforementioned risks. During the economic boom, the seemingly appealing investment decisions were made without taking into consideration the risks potentially associated with them, what resulted in many people losing their money and even remaining largely indebted to financial institutions. Therefore, currently, as the economics is on the wa)' to recovery, it is of the utmost importance to form the correct criteria for personal finance risk management.
