About Conference

The current developmental scenario envisages growth in a sustainable manner by transcending the principles of sustainability across different sectors. Innovation in entrepreneurship and management practices, leading towards the circular economy has come into currency among academia, industry, and policymakers with an over-arching objective of addressing environmental problems through trans-disciplinary research. Accordingly, there is a need to address the conceptual relationship among entrepreneurship, management, circular economy, and sustainability to understand the perceptions, opportunities, and challenges ahead. Sustainability is defined as the balanced integration of economic performance, social inclusiveness, and environmental resilience, to the benefit of current and future generations. The concept of sustainable economic development has its own continuous evolution in terms of defining dimensions. There is a need to emphasize reorientation of extant growth strategies, entrepreneurial models, management perspectives, and policy measures. To ensure a sustainable future, reconciling economic growth, social development, and conservation of the natural environment, better understanding of the global perception of sustainable development is important. Sustainable development is a multi-disciplinary process that encompasses all disciplines and topics such as science, innovation, technology, research and development, information technology and e-commerce, economic development, health, FDI and MNCs, international debt and aid, trade, politics, war, natural disasters, population growth, terrorism, and so on. Hence, sustainable development is not merely a concern of developing countries rather all countries, irrespective of their level of development, and current or past scientific and technological achievements. In 2015, world leaders agreed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, 17 goals to be achieved by 2030. These goals range from good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, decent work and economic growth, clean water, and sanitation. These goals are a catalyst for innovation and entrepreneurship across the planet, mobilising the ideas, and passion of young and old.
