November 15 to 17
Havana city, Cuba
The increasing economic significance of networks has fueled rapid growth in research at the intersection of management and economic disciplines. EMNet conferences serve to promote communication and awareness among researchers in economics and management and provide a forum to present current research and to discuss issues of common interest, such as relevant developments in organizational economics and management. The content of EMNet conferences include all forms of networks, such as franchising, joint ventures, licensing, financial networks, virtual organizations, strategic alliances, cooperative networks, clusters, venture capital relations and other forms of hybrids.
The eighth international conference on ECONOMICS AND MANAGEMENT OF NETWORKS will be held in cooperation with the University of Havana (http://www.uh.cu/) from November 15th to November 17th, 2018, in Havana, Cuba. The purpose of the conference is to provide an international discussion forum for research in economics and management of networks.
Theoretical, conceptual and empirical papers from all areas in economics and management of networks (franchising, retail and service chains, cooperatives, financial networks, joint ventures, strategic alliances, licensing, clusters, public network management and governance, public-private partnerships and new network forms in digital economy) are welcome.
