Business and Society: from ambition to impact

at the 2017Annual IABS Conference



Our 2017 conference theme is ‘Business and Society: from ambition to impact’. We reflect on how our teaching, research and service activities assist business and society to move from ambitions to achieve positive impact on the social, environmental, and economic dimension.

The conference is an opportunity for us all to learn, contribute and grow. We focus on developmental, not yet completed, research. Join us in Amsterdam, The Netherlands during June 29 - July 2, 2017.

The IABS 2017 conference:

  • Provides a forum for scholarly work in various stages of development
  • Enables participants to network with others sharing similar research and teaching interests
  • Offers the opportunity to participate in various formats
  • Takes place in the beautiful capital Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Building upon the success of last year's conference, we will have the second Donna Wood writing camp on June 26th-28th, directly before the conference.  Especially for PhD students and new faculty members, we will make sure the writing camp has good support and guidance by renowned academics.
