The Globelics community offers a range of interesting events
- The Globelics Conference. The annual conference is a meeting place and incubator for major research projects. Each year the conference takes place in a new location.
- The Globelics Ph.D. Academy that shifts location between the North and the South.
Regional chapters of Globelics have been developed in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Mediterranean region and Europe (Asialics, AfricaLics, Lalics, Medalics and Eurolics). In some big countries national networks have been established (CICALICS-China and Indialics). Some of these regional or national chapters organize their own conferences and Ph.D. academies for research training.
In recent years scholars within the
In recent years scholars within the Globelics Network have begun discussions about how to bring together the innovation system (e.g. Lundvall et al., 2009) and global value chain (e.g. Gereffi, 2014) approaches for the analysis of economic development.
The discussion has evolved during several events organised in Globelics:
- Globelics/Eurolics Workshop on Interactive Learning in National Innovation Systems and Global Value Chains: How to Escape the Poverty Trap, Copenhagen, 22 May 2015;
- The Special Session Global Value Chains and National Innovation Systems, during the Globelics Annual Conference in Havana, 23 September, 2015;
- The Obel Symposium on Innovation Systems, Globalization and Development, Aalborg, 10-12, 2016
A special issue of The European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) (to be published 2017) will bring together these frameworks to build on the discussions towards the creation of a research agenda on innovation and development. The special issue invites contributions from scholars, who have participated in the above seminars and also call for submissions from other interested scholars.

The challenge in mathematical modelling is “. . . not to produce the most comprehensive descriptive model but to produce the simplest possible model that incorporates the major features of the phenomenon of interest.” -Howard Emmons
Mathematical modelling essentially involves utilizing mathematical principles and concepts to describe real world phenomena. The end goal is to better understand these phenomena, glean insights about their behaviour and use obtained insights to control and make behavioural predictions about the phenomenon of interest. Mathematical models are finding renewed applications in disciplines ranging from economics to engineering, natural sciences, social sciences and interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary fields. Some mathematical problems often require the use of more than one tool or modelling technique for accurate analysis and solution. The challenge for modellers is often to determine the right tools and approach to use in solving real world problems.
We would like to invite researchers to contribute to publish both in the planned special issue in AJSTID and book chapters in the forthcoming book to be published by Taylor & Francis Routledge Publishers. Papers should describe contributions of mathematical modelling techniques or methods to solve problems and highlight how significant mathematical modelling limitations were handled. Furthermore the papers must demonstrate sufficient novelty and provide meaningful insights in the solution of practical problems. You are welcome to contribute original papers to be submitted by August 15, 2017.

Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India
Call for Participation in Training Workshop
In the last few decades, technological and organizational innovations have played a pivotal role in transforming the economies and societies of the South-Asian countries, setting them at the frontiers of science and technology advancement. Various policies and institutional arrangements have been restructured and created to achieve global competitiveness and faster economic growth. However, along with high economic growth, there is increasing inequality and exclusion as well as over-exploitation of natural resources. The emerging challenge, therefore, is to accomplish equilibrium between economic growth and social justice, through innovative and sustainable practices.
Drawing inspiration from the existing narratives and discourses, the 4th Indialics Training Workshop is thematised as ‘Innovation for sustainable development: Perspectives, Policies and Practices in South Asia’. This Training Workshop will explore the nature, determinants and direction of innovation and new pathways for meeting future challenges in the context of sustainable development with specific reference to South Asia. We posit that the challenges cannot be seen as isolated from each other but interconnected and requires social, institutional and policy innovations, political processes and the interconnections between these. The training workshop will reflect on challenges and opportunities in fostering innovation for socio-economic development and sustainability.
Key Training Tracks will include:
• Innovation for Sustainable Agriculture (Sub-Themes: Food Security, Farmers’ Innovation, etc.)
• Global Value Chains and Innovation Systems
• Sanitation and Waste Management
