2nd Bielefeld International Conference on Applied Business (BiCAB) on “Sustainability innovations in times of crisis”

12 May 2023

The Faculty of Business of Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences will organise the second instalment of its annual international conference in 2023. It will take place on 12 May 2023 (9.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.) and will have the following title:

“Sustainability innovations in times of crisis”

The whole world is currently struggling with many crises at the same time. The global climate catastrophe, as one of the crises that must be overcome , as one of the crises to be overcome, is a particularly great challenge, as it can only be contained through global cooperation, which, due to its rapid increase in speed, must be implemented quickly. This makes it all the more important to find cross-border innovations in sustainability issues. Sustainability innovations should be understood broadly, i.e. economic as well as social and ecological sustainability innovations (or also combinations) can be addressed. In times of crisis means that innovations that contribute to sustainable development are created with limited resources. The conference aims to offer a platform where international academics as well as practitioners can discuss these issues. In this way, solutions are sought that can withstand multiple crises, e.g. creating environmentally friendly solutions that pay attention to climate protection despite the energy crisis, or developing HR concepts that retain employees without costing more despite the economically difficult company situation.


We would like to invite you to attend the conference as a speaker and look forward to your scientific contribution.
