We invite faculty members and researchers to showcase your work at the online CEEMAN poster session related to the overall theme of the conference. The poster session is an opportunity to display innovations faculty members and researchers have implemented during the last months. Even when these innovations are still at an experimental phase, presenting them to the CEEMAN community will give the chance of finding support and receiving valuable feedback.

14:15 - 14:35 Why Biology Becomes Part of Management Science
Keynote by Dominique Turcq
, Founder and the President of the Boostzone Institute, France
The COVID-19 crisis has put biology on the forefront of news for several months. But the new developments of biology are not just around fighting a virus. Biology is actually becoming a major issue for corporations, leaders, decision makers, people as citizens or as consumers. This science will provoke major changes in business models, product development, people management, legal systems, management models, CSR models, ethical models. Understanding and managing issues linked to biology will become part of the CEO’s new hard and soft skills. Management education has to consider an understanding of biology as a must in all programs.

Keynote by Jan Hagen
, Associate Professor at ESMT, Germany
High-reliability organizations like nuclear power plants, hospitals or airlines are domains, which are not immediately associated with innovation and open leadership culture. However, a closer look at these organizations reveals they are applying principles that can provide inspiration for management in unexpected ways.

More than ever, in our age of globalization, big data, AI, and increasing uncertainty, leaders have to operate with great vision and finest concepts and using their imagination.
