What does the future hold for people, organizations, networks, societies and economies? What challenges will redefine the overall landscape? What is going to turn into yesterday’s news or is prone to become tomorrow’s MUST? What can we do about it? These are just a few questions which dare us to start Preparing for Tomorrow, Today. Today, meeting tomorrow mirrors articulate visions, irreplaceable resources, strong engagement and open minds, all of them embodied by farsighted leaders. Going by the book in an exclusive manner has fallen short to be the norm, foregoing the imperative of change becoming the norm itself. The only admissible standard for tomorrow is innovating today on solid, yet flexible grounds.
Revolving around these pivotal frameworks, the eighth edition of Strategica International Conference – Preparing for Tomorrow, Today – aims to become an agora for academic debates on multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary topics, envisaging novel conceptualizations and operationalizations of the future in all its social, economic, technological, cultural, thus multidimensional facets. We therefore invite worldwide scholars to contribute to the debates on ever-evolving issues liable to call forth innovative research and practical directions and to spark off farseeing mindsets!
We hoped this October we would enjoy good conversations, good wine and good laughs together in Bucharest. But the evolution of the pandemic is uncertain and the authorities are reserved when speaking about the relaxation of the social distancing measures during the second part of the year. Travel restrictions and health concerns might still be a hot topic this autumn.
As our community’s safety and wellbeing are of utmost importance to us, we made the decision to embrace digitalisation more tightly: STRATEGICA 2020 becomes an online videoconference.
Both keynote speakers and participants are invited to present live their speeches, but from remote locations. The agenda for the digital events will be friendly and dynamic. Surprises are on their way too!
