Building a Contemporary Research Community

This online conference provides an accessible way to connect and interact as a research network. We will host a number of different session types designed to make the most of online social knowledge processes including presentations, workshops and networking opportunities. We want to continue to work towards improving the standard of the local and international community of researchers, scholars, and practitioners by introducing them to the latest trends, developments, and challenges across a range of fields with the theme
"Digitalisation in Transformation: Bridging academia and Industry".
Theme and Special Focus
Innovation and transformation are arguably two of the most important elements when it comes to long-term success. When faced with marketplace changes, industries that stick with their traditions and fail to innovate or transform will almost certainly face challenges they may not overcome. The current pandemic is a prime example, forcing thousands of companies worldwide to change the way they operate in an unprecedented manner. Innovation and Transformation are relevant across all disciplines; Business, Media & Communication, Science & Technology, Psychology, and others, and will be the theme of this year’s conference with a focus on bridging the gap between theory and industry practices.
