FESSUD Final Conference, Brussels

FESSUD Final ConferenceA two-day event on Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development:
– Tuesday 27 September will be dedicated to a reflection from a research perspective.
– On Wednesday 28 September, we will open the debate from a policy perspective.

More information >>>

The FESSUD project will close 5 years of research about financialisation of our economy. It will present its main findings and policy recommendations for a financial system better serving the economy, society and the environment.

FESSUD brings together expertise from 14 leading universities across Europe and South Africa and PLS as the only civil society organisation to look afresh at how the financial system affects the world around us. This project has studied the growth and impacts of the financial system in Europe and offers recommendations to make the financial system work for society, the economy and the environment and not – as has sometimes been the case – the other way round.

The FESSUD project targets a wide public going from policy makers to representatives of the business sector, through civil society, to academics and citizens from the EU and beyond.

24th IPSERA Conference Amsterdam 28 March – 1 April

The 24th Conference of the International Purchasing Education and Research Association (IPSERA) was hosted by VU University Amsterdam and organised together with the University of Pannonia, Veszprém.  More than 200 participants from more than 20 countries presented and discussed more than 145 conference papers during three and a half days, which included a Doctoral Workshop and a special Educators Conference as pre-Conference events.
The Welcome reception on Sunday evening was in the Council Hall of the City of Amsterdam, where the Chief Procurement Officer of Amsterdam, Hans Dussel, welcomed the participants with an interesting presentation about social targets and economic targets in city procurement.
On Monday, two key note speakers presented after the official opening of the Conference in the VU University Aula. Professor Jan Fransoo (TU Eindhoven) dealt with the academic key note, while Stijn Kiens – Head Logistics Doctors without Borders (Médicins Sans Frontières) – had a fascinating presentation about the operations of setting up supply systems in crisis areas. „Effectiveness, rather than efficiency” and „independence rather than efficiency” where some of the criteria used in deciding who to partner with, how to maintain neutrality and most of all, how to help those in need. The main motivator was „outrage”. Outrage about what happened to certain tribes, nations or minorities. Stuff to make you think about things…
The remainder of the days was filled between 8.30 and 17.00 with hard work: presenting, discussing, meetings, Assembly, the usual conference activities. The evenings were spent on social activities, a buffet dinner in the wonderful Zuiderkerk on Monday and on Tuesday the Gala Conference Dinner in the famous marble hall of the Royal Institute of the Tropics. Here, the various awards for best papers were handed out, and the numerous bursaries that IPSERA has for promising young talents. The IPSERA Best Paper went to Nadine Kiratli et.al. (Maastricht University) for her paper on Team Creativity. The IFPSM Best Paper with managerial implications went to Cees Gelderman et.al. (OU Heerlen) for his work on the role of Critical Incidents in designing Globalisation Strategies. The Nevi Zorg Best Paper in Health care procurement went to Fredo Schotanus et.al. (university Twente) for the work on Cooperative procurement.
A special award was given for the first time in the history of IPSERA:  the Life Time Achievement Award. It was awarded to Prof. Attila Chikán, for his work in the field of Purchasing and Supply Management.
Altogether, it was a very successful conference and I would like to thank my Team members of the local Organising Committee for the very good cooperation!

Faculty’s delegation at the ITB Berlin

Berlin_2011_csoportEight Faculty members of the Tourism Department took part in the 3-days-long very informative and inspiring Convention days of ITB Berlin in March. The ITB, the world’s largest tourism trade fair lasted 5 days in Berlin and attracted guests from all over the world. Over 11,000 exhibitors from 188 countries were eager to offer their services by helping consumers to find the best lodging, plan personal destination trips and take advantage of a variety of tours and activities. About 170,000 visitors attended the fair this year. The visitors were offered the opportunity to learn about current travel trends of the travel industry.  This year’s main topics were sustainability, innovation, eco-mobility, social responsibility and new opportunities in social media in connection with tourism. Our small group divided itself in order to be present at most of the professional programmes and after arriving home we shared our experience with each other and with our colleagues who could not participate at the fair. For me, this program was a special experience, so I suggest all of you to take part in this unique event where “the top knowledge is free of charge.”
