Navigating the Future of Management
10-12 July 2019
The Business and Social Sciences School of the Universidade Europeia will promote its first international scientific conference addressing the subject of "The Future of Management". It is our goal to face the future of management considering its major functions – Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Information Systems, Operations, Quality, Research, Development, and Innovation – and the present and future changes on the scientific and technological panorama.
Big data, 3D and 4D prints, virtual currency, genetic therapies, energy sources – without cost and inexhaustible –, intelligent transport, the new generation of logistics, quantum computing, robotics and its growing impact on the implementation of tasks, nanotechnology, the E-learning, the genome, the organoid and the substantial increase in life expectancy are at the root of the future changes and It is up to educational institutions, and particularly universities, to develop prospective exercises, tracing contrasting scenarios and therefore predictive approaches able to illuminate the future while promoting more flexible decision-making systems and improving the ability of enterprises to adapt.

This axis invites investigations that address topics related to Health Informatics, Business Intelligence and Data Analytics, and Situational Awareness & Decision Support System (DSS & SA) [Read more]
4. Marketing: what are the new opportunities and responsibilities for the future?
This axis focuses on investigations related to the scientific trends on the role of marketing as a change agent in the context of Management. The challenges of the contemporary world directly affect market relations, between brands, stakeholders, and consumers, and thus the Marketing Management. Advances in the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) [Read more]
5. Research on Future Impacts, Development and Innovation
The axis "Research, Development, and Innovation" aims to address research topics [Read more]

7. Human Resource Development and Knowledge Stream
Knowledge is already the future and also a determining factor for the survival of organizations, as well as the professional career of individuals. To instigate the development of intellectual capital in organizations involves technology, structure, innovation, networking, synergies but above all talent. In this stream we seek to attract contributions that address the potential evolution of the HR and Knowledge areas in the next few years. [Read more]
