Dear Colleagues,

The consortium partners UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Technical University Varna, University of Edinburgh, University of Applied Sciences Burgenland, G-Force and University of Alicante cordially invite you to join the second CloudEARTHi conference. We kindly invite you to submit contributions that focus on current challenges related to sustainable entrepreneurship education and are diverse in terms of methodologies, theoretical standpoints and/or nationalities of the authors.

The conference main theme is:

“Academic Education and its Impact on Entrepreneurship and Sustainability”

Conference sub-themes are:

  • Sustainable society
  • Circular economy
  • Supporting innovation in sustainability
  • Net-zero transition
  • Blue growth
  • Green transition
  • Big Data & AI for sustainable development

The event will take place from May 23rd to May 25th, 2023, at University of Alicante in Alicante, Spain.

CloudEARTHi conference connects academics with businesses, public bodies and NGOs in order to explore how environmental sciences, sustainability, circular economy and the application of big data in business contexts can benefit society. The conference is organised within the CloudEARTHi initiative and funded by the European Union and EIT RawMaterials through the EIT HEI initiative. It is the second of a conference series on Innovation Capacity Building in Environmental Sciences, Sustainability and Circular Economy in Higher Education Institutions and their Entrepreneurial Ecosystems.

To maximise the impacts and include all the stakeholders, we decided to plan the conference as a hybrid event. The hybrid format will allow all to contribute to the discussion regardless their busy agenda or limitation of their budget. Our registration allows for online or in person participation. The conference papers will be collected in an online publication and feature the articles and contributions selected. Conference registration and attendance are free of charge (Thanks for the European Union and the EIT HEI initiative).

Our aim is to maximise the impact as we can, therefore we invite students (master and B.Sc levels) to contribute. A special session for the students will be prepared in order to bring their ideas into the spotlight and allow discussion with policy makers, business leaders and academics.

Please note the following important dates and deadlines:

  • First student session of how to write an abstract Feb 15th, 2023
