Conference themes and objectives.
Sustainable development is transforming the competitive landscape. It encourages companies to change the way they think about products, technologies, processes, and business models. Nowadays, innovation is also crucial to progress. By linking innovation and sustainability as a goal, entrepreneurs and policy-makers will develop new capabilities to improve the existing business model or creating new ones.
