Overview & agenda

The new economy has raised a number of challenges for organizations and individuals around the world. The technological transition has fundamentally changed many business models, as well as the competences required from employees. With the appearance of “Black Swans”, including most recently the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine, these challenges have been further reinforced, raising many questions about the resilience of countries and firms and the role of technology therein. 
The objective of the conference is to discuss solutions to current challenges through the lenses of several disciplines. Thereby, both international executives and scholars will share their perspectives.
