EURAM 2019: Call for papers
Borderstep Director Prof. Dr. Klaus Fichter is co-chair of the track “Sustainability, Circular and Green Tech Innovation” of the EURAM 2019.
With the theme Exploring the Future of Management: Facts, Fashion and Fado, EURAM 2019 invites you to participate in the debate about how to explore the future of management. Management is about doing things through people. Who are these new people? The behaviour of organisations vis-à-vis society is increasingly scrutinised and its impact cannot be ignored. Strategy, behavioural sciences, business and society, networks, services and global value chains, entrepreneurship and innovation… these and many other topics can and will be discussed during EURAM 2019.
Short description of the track:
Innovation researchers and practitioners are increasingly interested in reframing ecological and societal challenges as opportunities for innovation. In this track we explore recent advances towards the broader field of sustainability-oriented innovation (SOI) as well as the subthemes of circular and green technology innovation. We are keen to understand these innovation directions on the levels of products, product-service systems, and business models and are particularly interested in a better understanding of the innovation and entrepreneurial processes, as well as the related ecosystems, underlying these innovation outcomes.

The conference will take place from 26 to 28 June 2019 in Lisbon. Scientific articles (full papers) can be submitted until 15 January 2019.
