5th Multinational Enterprise and Sustainable Development:  Call for Papers – Deadline extended

When: December 7-9, 2017

Where:  Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, USA



Dear Colleague,


Submission Deadline: At the request of many of our colleagues,   the submission deadline is  OCTOBER  15, 2017 for proposals, papers and preliminary abstracts, and extended to November 1,   for non- reviewed papers and best practices presentations.


Please join us for the 5th Multinational Enterprises and Sustainable Development conference.  This world-leading conference brings together peer-reviewed research and practitioners for two and half days of discussion on this vitally important topic. It is co-organized by the Georgia Tech Center for International Business Education and Research of the Scheller College of Business, ICN Business School ARTEM, the CEREFIGE consortium of the University of Lorraine, and the Georgia Tech Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business.


The theme for 2017 is “Sustainable Development Goals: What can MNEs do?”  The role of the private sector has never been a more central question in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals in a more complex innovation-driven  policy environment.  While originally focused on MNEs, the conference has evolved to include  SMEs, start-ups,  and also extended  its research interest to NGOs.   The conference will feature keynote presentations by leaders of both business and the community of researchers.  The best papers from the conference will be selected for publication in special journal issues and an edited book.


Presenters attend free.  Contact organizing committee for any support.  We look forward to host you on the beautiful campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology for the best in research and best practices in the technological heartland of the South.
