Call for papers


9th edition: October 21-22, 2021 – Bucharest, Romania

The Faculty of Management from the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration (SNSPA) and the Romanian Academic Society of Management (SAMRO), with the support of the National Bank of Romania, announce the Call for Papers for the ninth edition of the International Conference STRATEGICA, to be held in Bucharest, October 21-22, 2021. The agenda for the event will be friendly and dynamic.

As the evolution of the pandemic is uncertain and the authorities are still reserved when speaking about the relaxation of the social distancing measures during the second part of the year, STRATEGICA 2021 will be an online conference. Participants could choose to present live their speeches from remote locations and a flexible program/format will be considered. Nevertheless, we hope to see you all in Bucharest, since the networking and the pleasure of direct discussions are unique.

Shaping the Future of Business and Economy

What does the future hold for people, organizations, networks, societies, and economies? What challenges will redefine the overall landscape after the global pandemic?

These are just a few questions that dare us to start Shaping the Future of Business and Economy. Adaptation has been outflanked by agility whereas reaction has been overtaken by proactive attitudes in the quest for sustainable competitive advantages in fluid and unexpected times. The unprecedented rhythm of change and disruptions at all levels triggered by the pandemic will be explored in specific tracks during the hybrid format Strategica conference.

The ninth edition of Strategica International Conference – Shaping the Future of Business and Economy – aims to become an agora for academic debates on multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary topics, envisaging novel conceptualizations and operationalizations related to the disturbances generated by this unexpected pandemic, determining social, economic, technological, cultural, thus multidimensional changes. 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!
