Innovation in an Era of Disruption


We are very excited to be hosting the R&D Management Conference 2021 which will be held online from Tuesday 6th-Thursday 8th July, 2021. We invite the submission of Extended Abstracts and Posters presenting academic research of a theoretical or empirical nature relating to the conference theme: Innovation in an Era of Disruption.

The global Covid-19 crisis has made many companies realise that they cannot operate as they have in the past. Crises create opportunities for both economic, social and environmental innovation manifest in the growing sharing economy and areas related to sustainability, clean technologies, energy and methods of production. 

We are striving to make this year’s conference as immersive an experience as possible, providing ample opportunities for the community to share their research ideas, network and socialise together. This year we are introducing e-poster sessions, where participants are welcome to submit e-posters on any area of R&D Management relevant to the conference theme. We are also promoting a number of Special Issues.
