Online  New Business Models Conference  1&2 July 2020

The COVID19 pandemic has a great impact on us all; what we do, how we live our lives, what we organize. To assure continuity of the 5 International Conference on New Business Models, we have gone fully on-line. We welcome you on July 1 & 2 2020 at a two-day fully digital organized event.
It is based on plenary sessions, multiple technically supported conference rooms with a moderator and a chat function. You can also book a virtual lunch-table for eight, meet new people via a digital hangout space et cetera. Stay home, no travel-hassle, reduce your CO2 impact and still join the community. Now that we have gone on-line, there is room for everybody.
Despite these radical changes the conference fee remained an all-time low due to support of the Dutch National organizations for fundamental (NWO) and applied (TNO) research. Do not hesitate and join us. No longer in Nijmegen at the Radboud University but in a ‘virtual’ conference location. This a unique experience to many, if not all of us. But as the saying goes: “We have never tried this before, so we think we should be able to organize this”.

Seminar  4 October 2018, Nijmegen (NL)

An increasing number of people live and work in cities. As a result, livability, sustainability and, recently, circularity have become important themes. To integrate these themes into an existing urban environment requires a transition: citizens, companies, and governments must join forces to develop new ways to collaborate in order to enhance sustainability, circularity, and inclusivity. This leads to socio-economic models of multiple value creation such as a cleaner and healthier city, a livable city, the city as a supplier of raw materials, or an ‘edible’ city. Consequently, we can characterize these models as Urban Business Models (UBMs). Organizing these new value creation models can be observed across Europe. How these models can be organized in a smart, effective way requires opportunities for thought and advancement.

On 4 October 2018, teams from all over Europe are invited to join us at the Radboud University in Nijmegen for a two-day seminar. Our aim during this conference is to exchange experiences, share our knowledge, and expand our networks. If you are in charge (or know of) a project that fits this profile, you are invited to apply for participation in the seminar. Please note that there is a limited number of places available.The seminar takes place as part of the Nijmegen European Green Capital 2018 festivities. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Netherlands provides support.  It is an initiative of Jan Jonker, Professor Corporate Sustainability at the NSM(RU), specialized in sustainable business modelling and the circular economy.
