    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Inno­va­tion is the intro­duc­tion and cre­ation of some­thing new, in the form of an idea, skill, prod­uct, ser­vice or process, that helps improve an orga­ni­za­tion or soci­ety. The Annual Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Inno­va­tion and Entre­pre­neur­ship (IE) hopes to intro­duce a wider view of inno­va­tion as new meth­ods of cre­at­ing value, and to focus on research that study inno­v­a­tive processes, orga­ni­za­tional prac­tices, sys­tems, sup­ply chain design and other mech­a­nisms that are related to oper­a­tions in practice.

    This con­fer­ence aims to explore poli­cies, mea­sures and mech­a­nisms for pro­mot­ing inno­va­tion and entre­pre­neur­ship in var­i­ous areas.

    Con­fer­ence Highlights
