The 15th International Globelics Conference

The 15th International Globelics Conference will be held in Athens, Greece and hosted by the Laboratory of Industrial and Energy Economics (LIEE) at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), the oldest and most prestigious Greek academic institution in the field of Technology and Engineering (established 1837).

As always scholars from all over the world and from many different disciplines will gather  to discuss innovation and development, this year under the main conference theme:

“Innovation and capacity building in the context of financialisation and uneven development of the global economy:
New roles for the state, productive sector, and social actors”

The conference invites papers addressing the role of different types of actors such as the State, local authorities, continental entities, knowledge institutions, productive political and social actors in shaping innovation and capacity building so as to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth.

In particular, the conference aims to explore whether we need new approaches to study inequality in the age of globalisation as there are widening disparities within countries, regions and social classes. The conference will also consider the need to tackle new challenges related to innovation and capacity building in addition to the systems of innovation approach.

In addition the conference also welcomes papers studying how systems of policies can be implemented at different levels and across different countries to innovate out of the crisis.
