Paper Development CID Group Seminar - Business and Sustainability

Paper Development CID Group Seminar "Business and Sustainability"

The Marketing Department at Kozminski University cordially invite to Paper Development CID Group Seminar “Business and Sustainability” - 19.09.2023  

The focus of the CID Seminar is to explore the critical role that businesses play in promoting sustainability and how business relationships can be leveraged to achieve justifiable outcomes. Conducting research on business relationships and sustainability is essential to understand the dynamics of processes and practices. The findings can help develop new strategies and policies that promote sustainable practices while maintaining healthy relationships with stakeholders. The CID Seminar will provide a platform for exploring new ideas, sharing research findings, and collaborating to develop strategies for promoting sustainable business practices. The diverse perspectives and insights will facilitate a comprehensive understanding of the topic and generate new ideas for further research. The second goal of the CID Seminar is to support authors by providing constructive feedback on the further development of full-text articles to be submitted to journals of significant international reputation.   

The seminar is patronaged by two journals:

Oeconomia Copernicana  (MEN: 100 points)
