The 34th Annual Scientific Meeting theme is “Humanizing technologies for a better society. Purpose-driven innovation to empower people”. Our annual meeting will be dedicated to better understanding the complex relationship between people, communities, and technologies. The overall objective of the discussion is to propose and analyze new models of innovation, technology development, and adoption conceived to mitigate the unintended consequences of innovation, to better respond to societal grand challenges and to accelerate the transition towards more sustainable and inclusive economic and industrial paradigms. There is a pressing need to rethink and reshape the current model of innovation, driven by the idea of super-performance and super-functionality of technology and the imperative of profit maximisation for shareholders, and move instead towards a more balanced model, centred on the social dividends of technology that fully reconciles the human, social and environmental implications of industrial production with the economic and financial ones. The conference aims to anticipate a near-term future in which sustainability and innovation will converge in a unique, single and undetachable meaning, enabling deep-purpose business models and sustainable growth.

The following research streams are particularly relevant to this extent:

  • Models and approaches aimed at introducing a human-centred perspective into innovation models
  • Innovation approaches aimed at contrasting inequalities, taking care of disadvantaged individuals and in general enabling smart responses to societal challenges
  • Social innovation and social-tech
  • Data for good
  • Innovation, competition and industrial dynamics for collective well-being
  • Finance for human-centred and inclusive innovation
  • Models and methods for the design and management of regenerative and resilient industrial supply chains
  • Collaborative and distributed manufacturing models enabled by digital platforms for more sustainable production systems
  • Person-centred digital factory model

A list of proposed thematic tracks is also contributing to the program:

Two different types of paper may be presented:

1) ‘Competitive’ papers, namely fully-developed papers, ready for submissions to journals/books, describing clearly research objectives, research hypotheses, and empirical/theoretical analysis;

2) ‘Work-in-progress’ papers, namely early-stage papers, still not ready for submission to journals/books, describing motivations and pitching possible research hypotheses.


IMPORTANT! The submitted PDF/WORD file SHALL NOT include the authors' names. In case of acceptance, authors will be required to upload the final version including the authors' names.

A blind review process will be adopted for the evaluation of all submissions.

Each author can submit up to three papers but will be allowed to present just one (every accepted paper must have a different presenter).
