Over the last two decades, WICaNeM has become a well-known conference regarding the management, economics and organization of chains and networks in a Life Sciences context. Over the years, representatives of business, government and research discuss the latest issues of innovation and sustainability in chains and networks to build the sustainability agenda for the years to come. It is the 13th time we organize the WICaNeM Conference. Now we have joined forces with the Università Politecnica delle Marche to create a European Platform in Ancona, Italy. This year’s Conference theme will be "Sustainability and Innovation in Chains and Network".
Next to the academic tracks, which will be held during all the days of the conference, on Monday July 2 the discussions will focus on building a sustainability and innovation agenda from an academic and research perspective, while Tuesday the 3rd of July will focus on building the sustainability agenda and the innovations that are needed from a company and business perspective. Wednesday the 4th of July will conclude the conference with a farewell reception.
Wageningen University and Research and the Università Politecnica delle Marche cordially invite professors, applied researchers, managers, consultants, and policy makers interested in the management, economics and organization of chains and networks to present and discuss their most recent advances in science and business. The benefits of participating in this unique Conference are evident: being on the cutting edge of chain and network science, meeting the experts from all over the world and, finally, yet importantly, sharing experiences with old and new friends.
