About the Conference

Continuing the series of the previous twelve successfully organized international conferences in the last two decades. Traditionally organized by the Faculty of Economics – Prilep, the Conference strives to gather academicians, researchers, managers, industrial participants, policymakers, practitioners who work with both technical and non-technical aspects of digital transformation, as well as postgraduate and doctoral students to share their knowledge and recent research findings on how omnipresent processes of digitalization impact and change economy and businesses, and how they influence, transform and reshape our society.

The actual economic, environmental, sociological, and health-related circumstances are putting substantial pressure on governments, organizations, and enterprises throughout the world to respond quickly. To meet the immense problems they face, countries, communities, businesses, ecosystems, and even individuals must rethink their roles and responsibilities, and rebuild their competitiveness. Modern economic systems must use digital technologies and ICT solutions more than ever before, to boost individual skills, personal capabilities, and organizational capacities, emphasizing the greatness of human potential.

Given the imminent threats imposed by many factors, including climate change and pandemics, the interaction of technological innovations, globalization, and environmental sustainability receives significant emphasis. Firms with a worldwide presence and those which are part of complex value chains that often exceed national borders face new possibilities, but also they encounter new problems to be solved when doing business using digital and sustainable technologies. Moreover, digitalization has already profoundly affected all aspects of our modern way of thinking, living and working.

In light of all these considerations, we invite research articles that contribute to the discussion of how digital technologies and digitalization might enable and foster societal, cultural, economic, and/or political transformations and changes in various areas for human wellbeing, and how they might underpin the long-term revival in organizational competitiveness, taking into account both SMEs and larger enterprises, as well as a new generation of entrepreneurs.
