MAY 10th

Due to numerous requests from authors the Globelics Secretariat has decided to extend the deadline for submission of papers to the 15th Globelics Conference in Athens with 10 days. The new deadline is May 10th, 23:59 Greek time.The conference will explore, among other things, the challenges for innovation and capacity building in the context of financialisation and uneven development of the global economy. Special attention will be given to the role of different types of actors such as the State, local authorities, continental entities, knowledge institutions, productive political and social actors in shaping innovation and capacity building so as to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth. In particular, it aims to explore whether we need new approaches to study inequality in the age of globalization as there are widening disparities within countries, regions and social classes. The conference will also consider the need to tackle new challenges related to innovation and capacity building in addition to our systems of innovation approach. The conference also welcomes papers studying how systems of policies can be implemented at different levels and across different countries to innovate out of the crisis.


We encourage scholars at scientific institutions, universities, enterprises and public sector institutions to take this opportunity to present their work to leading scholars in the field of innovation and development. We especially encourage young researchers to submit papers.
