Competitive Renaissance through Digital Transformation

  • Global Challenges

    Nowadays’ worldwide challenges posed by economic, environmental, societal and-health-related conditions are calling governments and organizations to act with urgency. Nations, companies, and ecosystems need to rethink and re-build their competitiveness to address the enormous challenges they are faced with (McKinsey, 2020). While the Renaissance emphasized the magnificence of human potential, a ‘new renaissance’ of the Italian and European system must leverage digital technology to ‘augment’ human talent and organizational capabilities.

  • Immediate Response

    To respond to existential challenges posed by climate change, key attention should be paid to the interplay between technological innovation, globalization, and environmental sustainability. Given this, we call for research papers providing a contribution to the debate on how digital technologies can enable a sustainable renaissance of organizations’ competitiveness.



  • Conference Topics

    The conference will be arranged around three tentative tracks

    1. Conference Theme Track
    2. SMEs, Resilience, and Digital Transformation Track
    3. Digital Innovation and Sustainable Renaissance Track

Why attend?

Publication opportunities

The conference is in partnership with the following journals and related publication opportunities: European Management Journal - Management Focus Section, tentatively published by end of 2021
MIS Quarterly Executive - Special Section on the theme of the conference for qualifying invited papers
Technovation - Special Issue, tentatively published by the end of 2021

Connection with practitioners

Much of academic effort is spent studying theoretical phenomena. When this is brought to bear on timely topics of interest to executives, academics can serve as the leading edge of the reinsurance spear. This objective can only be achieved by engaging deeply with executives. We want to lead in this effort and invite papers that bridge the gap between academia and practice.

On-site safety

The conference is scheduled in presence, ensuring the best standard in terms of health safety.
In case of issues due to the pandemic situation, we'll consider to move online and/or "blended" (partially in presence, with possibility to follow online). CISCO will support us as official technical partner in offering the best 'smart' experience possible to all attenders.

Closing Speech & Concluding Remarks

Visit to KOSMOS museum

Visit to KOSMOS museum

In the city center, just behind the Department of Economics of Management, hosted inside Botta Adorno’s Palace, one of the most beautiful patrician residences, stands the museum Kosmos, a word that in ancient Greek means “order”. This building boasts to have hosted illustrious figures such as Napoleone and Vittorio Emanuele II. Recently renewed, the museum is very interactive and contains more than 500 natural artifacts flanked by multimedia games, videos, and interactive stations dedicated to children.
