THE 3RD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ECONOMICS AND SOCIAL SCIENCES

Innovative business models to revive the global economy

Bucharest University of Economic Studies, Bucharest, October 15-16, 2020

 

 

DEADLINE EXTENDED: JUNE 30, 2020

The recent economic challenges determined by the global crisis due to COVID 19 reinforce the need of implementing new and innovative mechanisms to revitalize countries, people, businesses, and education. During a crisis, countries and business must respond promptly to ensure survival. They need to rethink social contracts, redefine work and consumption, mobilize resources at speed and scale and at the same time rethinking patterns from global to local.

The innovative models for sustainable development aim to ensure simultaneous economic development, social development, and environmental protection, to achieve a higher quality of life for all people and protect all living beings and the planet. The COVID-19 is a major risk for public health with significant negative economic and social impacts on the long run and this will reinforce the responsibility focus.

This conference provides an opportunity for all those interested in Economics and Social Sciences to discuss and exchange research ideas especially in the light of recent crisis determined by COVID-19. We welcome both empirical and theoretical work that is broadly consistent with the conference’ general theme. Especially, researchers, PhD students and practitioners are invited to submit papers on the topics related to new models in entrepreneurship and innovation, sustainability and education, data science and digitalization, marketing and finance etc. that will develop innovative instruments for countries, businesses and education to revive after the crisis.

 

The papers accepted will be published in the conference proceedings, subject to author registration, payment and presentation.  

The presented papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings volume and will be submitted to Thomson Reuters ISI Web of Science (WOS) Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Gilbert Chavez

Title of paper/presentation: Kokorozashi: The Search for Meaning in Business

This presentation is based on the book published two years ago by GLOBS University and written by Dean Tomoya Nakamura and Kenya Yoshino, Japan, which has two common views regarding the meaning in one's life -- the daily experience of work ("ikigai"), and the long-term orientation of achieving a significant goal, or "kokorozashi". To lead a meaningful life requires both aspects -- one cannot continue to strive toward achieving their kokorozashi, without finding meaning and inspiration in their daily efforts, and to create a significant contribution to society means setting out a long-term goal and navigating toward it. Admittedly, one's kokorozashi may change along the way as circumstances require, and personal preferences evolve, but having a kokorozashi will enable one to go farther, achieve more, and feel more engaged over the course of the life time. It will also make one more conscious of what social values they are creating in their work, making a win for not only themselves and their company, but also for society.
