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!

Procurement in Health Care: Practice and Research

Untitled10th October 2014

PROCUREMENT IN HEALTH CARE: PRACTICE AND RESEARCH
1st International Workshop: R&D in Stakeholder Driven Procurement:Health care, Public sector, Hospitality industry and the Humanitarian sector

Morning session: Status of Health Care Procurement
Afternoon session: Research Workshop

Morning 9-13h:

Procurement in Health Care: Best Practice and Research
Health care is becoming more expensive everywhere in the world. Whether organised as private health care institutions, Public Bodies or mixtures of these, the rise in costs of medical care is wide spread. In this context, most Governments try new institutional arrangements to control expenditure, while at the same time hospitals and care institutions look for ways to reduce costs, although they are at the same time under pressure to improve the quality of medical care.
In this context, we organise a special day on Friday the 10th of October 2014, reviewing both the state of the art of modern procurement practice in hospitals in Western-Europe in the morning  and the latest research findings and practitioner experiences in Stakeholder dependent activities like Hospitals, Public Procurement, Humanitarian activities and the Hospitality sector in the afternoon.
The Department of Supply Chain Management of the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Pannonia in Veszprém, in cooperation with the largest University Hospital of the Netherlands – the University Medical Centre of Groningen – and its Procurement Department will organise the day.
In the morning, after the opening at 9.00 by the Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics, Dr. Lajos Szabó,  guest speakers will share their experience with the participants:
• Prof. Dr. Péter Mihályi, Professor at the University of Pannonia, Faculty of Business and Economics, Head of Department, Department of Finance: Cost-benefit analysis in health care and the current financial state of the Hungarian health care system
• Prof. Dr. Dirk-Jan Kamann, Research Professor at  the University of Pannonia, Faculty of Business and Economics: External dynamics: new challenges and opportunities
• Hans Bax MBA, Procurement Manager of the UMCG and President of the Dutch Association of Purchasing Dept of Health Care (NEVI Zorg): Procurement at the UMCG: challenges and results
• Prof. Dr. Ning Qu, Thorax Surgeon at Tianjin Chest Hospital, International Project Manager at UMCG and Chairman of Sino-European Medical Innovation and Co-operation (SEMICO): Sourcing in China for medical devices? Some results
• Prof. Dr. Zoltán Kovács, Professor at the University of Pannonia, Faculty of Business and Economics, Head of Department, Department of Supply Chain Management, Márta Vörös: Hospital purchasing: a case study

Afternoon 14-18h:

Research Workshop
After lunch, the afternoon will cover research contributions in procurement in sectors were typically various types of Stakeholders are important: examples we think of are the health care sector, public sector, the hospitality sector and the humanitarian sector. We welcome papers on results, proposals and new ideas. Practitioners, Researchers and PhD students will be invited to present their work and/or discuss experiences in the field. We already received contributions on for instance the adoption criteria for doctors, insurance companies and staff when it comes to medical devices, but also a presentation by the Hungarian Armed Forces on supply chains in crisis. While expert researchers and PhD students are invited to present their work and other new ideas that may arise, interested practitioners are warmly welcomed to provide us with their views and experiences. Hopefully, a new international network will arise for future cooperation in this field.
The day will receive the support of the International Purchasing and Education Research Association (IPSERA). The costs of participating for will be kept low (max 10.000 ft or 35 euro for the morning; free for the afternoon).
