    Shaping the future of work and business education


    Conference: June 19-23, 2023, Greece (Athens & Island of Soros)


    Digital technologies are leaving a lasting impact on the way we work, live, and communicate. These rapidly emerging technologies are radically transforming areas of cognitive and physical work, enhancing efficiency, and opening new opportunities and new challenges. As a result, management roles are evolving in constantly renewed directions. In this digital era, managers are called to work alongside intelligent machines that perform many cognitive tasks hitherto performed exclusively by humans. Academic and industry leaders need to work together to debate and exploit the potential of digital technologies today and shape the future of work and business education to foster digital and leadership skills in preparation for future challenges. A new style of leadership is required, where digital savviness is essential, together with an increased focus on collaboration, transparency, entrepreneurship, diversity, and inclusion. Additionally, risk awareness and risk management become top priorities, and new ethical challenges are presented, making stronger the need for collaboration between industry and academia. 


    This conference is unique in that it will bring together academic leaders, academic researchers, and industry leadersto discuss new results on management and leadership in the digital era, as well the impact of digital on business and on education. The conference will feature selected papers presenting innovative research results and their business impact, as well as discussion papers and panels by academic leaders and industry leaders on their vision about the future of Business Schools and business education in view of the opportunities in the digital era. Authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to publish their papers in a volume published by Springer.

    1. Leadership and Governance in the Digital Era
