Economics and management of innovation and entrepreneurship

In the context of the post-2007 global financial crisis, new frameworks and tools need to be analysed and developed, such as circular and resilient economy, systemic and interactive innovation, bio-based products, and multi - actor approaches.
Moving towards a more competitive economy and  a resilient society requires a deeper understanding of current trends and the development of new tools for innovation management. Similarly, the global business revolution draws on digital innovation and the adoption of disruptive technologies, new business models,  and strategies based on creative thinking and deeper understanding of the growing volumes of data and information available.
