Going online: NBM Conference 2020

The registration deadline has expired.

The COVID19 pandemic has a great impact on us all; what we do, how we live our lives, what we organize. To assure continuity of the 5 International Conference on New Business Models, we have gone fully on-line. We welcome you on July 1 & 2 2020 at a two-day fully digital organized event.

It is based on plenary sessions, multiple technically supported conference rooms with a moderator and a chat function. You can also book a virtual lunch-table for six, meet new people via a digital hangout space et cetera. Stay home, no travel-hassle, reduce your CO2 impact and still join the community. Now that we have gone on-line, there is room for everybody.

Almost five years down the line we have organised NBM @Toulouse( 2016) NBM@ Graz (2017), NBM @ Sofia (2018) and NBM @ Berlin (2019).  Each of the NBM conferences followed a specific theme related to new business models. In hindsight, we see the 1st conference at the Toulouse Business School (TBS, France) as a try-out. The second edition of the conference took place at the University of Graz, Austria, in June 2017. This conference’s focus was on the development of new business models, especially emphasising the creation of multiple forms of value.

In 2018, our community was welcome in Sofia at the University of National and World Economy. The impact of a new generation of business models on society from both a local, regional, national, and international perspective has been the focus. Our visit to Berlin at ESCP Europe in 2019 incorporated change into the discussion. We focused on the contribution of developing new business models to reach the Sustainable Development Goals through sustainable entrepreneurship, innovation and transitions to future-fit societies. Now we are approaching the fifth edition which will take place at the Radboud University in Nijmegen.

The central theme of this conference is the role of business models in transition. During this fifth and final conference of this first series, we also like to look back and learn from our experiences of the past five years. We hope this creates the basis to design a research agenda for the next five years.

Track for Young Academics
In addition to academics and practitioners, we especially welcome students of Bachelor and Master programs to present their work at the conference. For this, the conference provides a specific stage, allowing young academicians to present their research results and voice their point of view based on their research. The research must be related to the relevant questions raised in the Call for Contributions and can also be presented as work-in-progress.
