The 2022 Gothenburg International Research Workshop on Sustainable Economic Growth and Decent Work for All

Event Information

Date

Thursday 25 August – Friday 26 August, 2022

Location

The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg

Event Type

Academic Workshop

The 2022 Gothenburg International Research Workshop on Sustainable Economic Growth and Decent Work for All will take place on August 25-26, 2022. Researchers from around the world are invited to present, discuss and network related to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8 in Agenda 2030.

At the core of SDG 8, is the great challenge of obtaining economic growth without compromising the environment while also ensuring full employment and respect for labor rights. Economic progress must be inclusive and in harmony with the planetary boundaries. The COVID pandemic has put enormous pressure on development, the geopolitical landscape has severely deteriorated with imminent risks of escalation of conflicts, we are nowhere near the reductions needed to avoid a climate collapse, and the great majority of indicators of ecosystems and biodiversity are showing a rapid decline. The existing economic system is unsustainable and the need to pursue further research in areas such as sustainable economic growth, resource efficiency, full employment, occupational health and safety, and policies for just and well-functioning labor markets is critical. For the same reasons, it is critical to synthesize existing research and urgently transfer that knowledge to society.

There will be keynote presentations by among others: Jan Steckel and E. Somanathan.

The deadline for abstracts is June 15th.

EFMD Annual Conference: What Brought Us Here Might Not Get Us There

Target group:

The EFMD Annual Conference has been designed for all those interested in management education and development. It brings together EFMD members, companies, educational institutions and other associations, offering various perspectives and discussions on the conference theme.

Conference theme:

What brought us here might not get us there! After more than 2 years of turmoil, reassessing of where businesses and business schools came from and where they want to go appears more relevant than ever. The programme will therefore look at this theme starting with the individual – what does transformational leadership look like? – then look at organisations – how does the current and future world of work look like and how do we have to adapt it? – and finally look at the wider societal context around issues such as the climate emergency, sustainability goals and the wider global context, where equally a rethink of strategies and actions may become imminent.
