    Corporate Responsibility Research Conference, CRRC 2019

    'Rethinking Value Creation for Sustainability' September 11-13, 2019 Tampere, Finland


    Conference website and abstract submission:

    The conference will be organised and hosted by the Tampere University (Finland) in association with the Sustainability Research Institute at the University of Leeds (UK) and Kedge Business School (France).

    The conference theme 'Rethinking Value Creation for Sustainability' invites us to challenge our understandings of value and value creation. The focus of the conference is on the ways business and other organisations provide solutions to the current sustainability challenges. In private and public organisations and other institutions, value is created in novel ways that may not yet be fully apprehended or conceptualised by research. Thus, the focus of the conference is on those activities and practices that precede the current theoretical conceptualisations of value creation for sustainability in and around organisations. We seek contributions address the idea of rethinking value creation for sustainability from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

    As in previous years, we will run our PhD workshop on the first day of the conference. The main conference will start on September 12, 2019.
