Eu-SPRI Early Career Conference (ECC) 2024

Enhancing innovation ecosystems for a sustainable world in times of dramatic change: A policy challenge



We are pleased to announce the 2024 EU-SPRI ECC ConferenceEnhancing innovation ecosystems for a sustainable world in times of dramatic change: A policy challenge” that this year will take place in Bari on 30th and 31st October 2024, jointly organised by Politecnico di Milano – School of Management (IT), University of Twente (NL), and Politecnico di Bari (IT).

Global warming, pandemics, unprecedented technological progress, and wars are fundamentally reshaping how innovation ecosystems can contribute to a more sustainable world. While the advancement of platforms and AI technologies is expanding the scope of innovations and entrepreneurial opportunities, concerns persist regarding the potential negative consequences of these powerful tools. Moreover, as innovation becomes more open and less constrained, there is a noticeable trend towards de-globalization, resulting in polarized and more closed economic systems.

The conference invites scholars and practitioners to reflect on the policies and strategies to enhance innovation ecosystem initiation, unfolding, and emergence for sustainable purposes, particularly in times of dramatic change.
