5th MacroTrend Conference on Technology and Innovation: Paris 2017

December 28-29, 2017


92, rue Saint-Lazare 75009, Paris, France

  • Conference History

    In 2012, we organized the December Paris conference on business and business related disciplines, including technology and innovation. The 2012 conference was a great success, attracting participants from over 30 countries. More importantly, we had received many abstracts on topics in technology related research beyond our initially narrow call for papers. Thus, we in 2013, we created a separate technology and innovation conference, which allowed us to explore all important topics related to  technology related research. Over the years the conference expanded and grew, attracting many new participants from different areas of innovation research. We plan to continue to meet in Paris each December, and are truly looking forward to our 5th edition in 2017.
