Initiated as a pilot academic event, Strategica international conference has soon sprung as a fine-grained and fruitful community of scholars and practitioners eager for hot topics and cutting-edge research. Every year, Strategica has attracted more and more participants from 25 countries and 4 continents, fostering transnational and intercultural knowledge and value networks. In my view, Strategica arises as the corollary of the Center for Research in Management since its inception and opens new avenues towards academic collaboration and scientific development.
