Call for papers for the International Technology Management Conference
The 24th International Technology Management Conference is a place where research, science and innovation is called for original ideas, papers, debates, initiatives and projects. Researchers, innovators, industrialists, engineers and practitioners are invited to share their expertise in this year’s conference topic: Era of Connectedness: The Future of Technology, Engineering & Innovation in a Digital Society.
Sustainability has evolved into a guiding principle for business in the last years. Considering an integrated economic, environmental and social perspective can trigger new ideas for R&D and innovation and thus support the creation of environmentally sound products and solutions.
However, from both theoretical and practical perspectives, many questions arise on the implementation of sustainability principles, such as:
- How can sustainability aspects be integrated into traditional innovation management concepts?
- Which methods and tools are required to foster innovations contributing to sustainability goals or enabling a circular economy?
- How can social innovations be designed which are also economically viable and environmentally friendly?
- How does the triple-bottom line concept of sustainability relate to or change the existing perception of entrepreneurship?
Innovation and entrepreneurship researchers could address these questions and where practitioners can give valuable insights from their experience. Contributions should address all management levels from business strategy over processes, methods and tools.
You will find the detailed description of the session here.
The call for papers is open until March 15th 2018.
