2023 EDSI Annual Conference

Join us for our 13th annual conference

June 4 – 7, 2023 – Nantes, France
Audencia Business School

Building Resilience for Sustainable Transition

The necessity for the development of new business models to combat the looming energy crisis, prepare for digital disruption, improve supply chain transparency and security, ensure diversity and inclusion, mental health and physical well-being in workplaces, generate a challenging new environment for managers across all the functional areas of an organisation. With increased risks along the supply chain, building resilience has become a pivotal topic for sustained organizational survival and growth. The conference will provide a forum for academics as well as practitioners to present research papers and discuss opportunities to improve effectiveness and innovation in organisations. The underlying intent will be to generate insights into the radical changes that organisations are faced with and develop innovative decision-making models for responsible organisational performance.

Audencia in Nantes, France

Founded in Nantes in 1900, Audencia – from the Latin audientia, meaning “listening”, and audacia, meaning “daring” – was first accredited by EQUIS in 1998 and is ranked amongst the top European business schools.

In 2004, Audencia joined the UN initiative uniting companies, the business world and civil society around 10 universal principles for labour and environmental standards and human rights. We were the first business school in France to join the Global Compact.

Since then, we have been developing and disseminating our expertise in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and integrating it into our research, teaching and internal management.
