Strathclyde to host R&D Management Conference 2021: call for contributions


The R&D Management Conference 2021 will be hosted online by the University of Strathclyde in July this year and the call for contributions has gone out with a deadline of March 17.

The theme of the conference is "Innovation in an Era of Disruption" and will take place from July 6-8 and will be chaired by Professor Beverly Wagner and Dr Juliette Wilson (Marketing), along with co-organisers Dr Natalie McDougall (Marketing) and Professor John Liggat (Pure & Applied Chemistry). Dr Aliakbar Jafari (Marketing) and Dr Lawrence Dooley (UCC) are arranging the PhD Colloquium. The organisers are looking forward to bringing international academe and industry leaders together to enjoy a series of parallel tracks surrounding the theme.

The conference will also offer Keynote Presentations from word class experts, including Steve Radar (Nasa’s Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation), Gavin McClafferty (Subsea 7), Professor Tim Minshall (Institute for Manufacturing, Cambridge University), Dr Riccardo Fini (Imperial College London) and Professor Ellen Enkel (University of Duisburg-Essen). There will be a number of Meet the Editor sessions and the opportunity to contribute towards several forthcoming Special Issues. The virtual social calendar will also offer ample opportunity to network.

The call for abstracts, e-posters, workshops, tutorials, seminars and masterclasses is now open – with the deadline of March 17 fast approaching. For further information please email or check out the website here
