Conference History


Our first conference on global policy research trends was in February of 2013 in Paris, France. The following  two years, we met in Monaco. In 2016, we moved the conference to Nice, and moved the date to early summer.


Conference Mission


Our first conference focused primarily on International Business and Global Policy issues. Our mission continues to be related to global policy research issues, particularly to recent trends in academic research, with strong emphasis on practical policy implications


Conference Topics


The primary focus of the conference is related to academic research trends with global policy implications. Specifically, we are interested in abstracts discussing the issues in business research trends (trade, tourism, financial markets, regional studies, marketing, management, and other), as well as studies in medicine, science, technology, with strong practical implications on global policy issues.  Thus, there are two general tracks: Track 1: Business; Track 2: Science (Technology, Medicine, Applied Science)
