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.

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.
Month Long Event (august)
The ASIALICS Organising Committee invites
The ASIALICS Organising Committee invites full paper submissions for the 14th ASIALICS Conference to be held in Tehran, Iran 30-31 August, 2017.
The main theme of the conference is Technological learning, innovation and catching-up in the context of international collaborations.
Paper submission deadline: 8 June, 2017
Key note lecture will be given by Prof. Lundvall from Aalborg University, Denmark and Prof. Djeflat from Université des Sciences et Technologies de Lille (Lille-1), France.
The conference will explore, among other things, the modes of technological learning and innovation within the context of international collaborations for successful catching-up. For West-Asia it is important to learn from the experiences of East-Asia’s successful countries while at the same time exploring its own way based on capabilities and conditions.
Original papers pertaining to the issues of technological learning and innovation, capability building, catching-up and even development in different levels (i.e. firms, industries or countries) are welcome.
30 (Wednesday) 1:00 am - 31 (Thursday) 1:00 am
Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran
The 15th International Globelics Conference will be held in Athens, Greece and hosted by the Laboratory of Industrial and Energy Economics (LIEE) at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), the oldest and most prestigious Greek academic institution in the field of Technology and Engineering (established 1837).
As always scholars from all over the world and from many different disciplines will gather to discuss innovation and development, this year under the main conference theme:
Innovation and capacity building in the context of financialisation and uneven development of the global economy: New roles for the state, productive sector, and social actors
The conference invites papers addressing the role of different types of actors such as the State, local authorities, continental entities, knowledge institutions, productive political and social actors in shaping innovation and capacity building so as to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth.
In particular, the conference aims to explore whether we need new approaches to study inequality in the age of globalisation as there are widening disparities within countries, regions and social classes. The conference will also consider the need to tackle new challenges related to innovation and capacity building in addition to the systems of innovation approach.
In addition the conference also welcomes papers studying how systems of policies can be implemented at different levels and across different countries to innovate out of the crisis.
Deadline for submission of paper: May 10th, 2017
Deadline for application for travel support: May 10th, 2017

Innovation for Sustainable
Innovation for Sustainable Development: Perspectives, Policies and Practices in South Asia
Training Workshop: 1st to 5th November 2017
(The INDIALICS Academy 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
• Climate Change Adaption and Mitigation (Sub-Themes: Resilience, etc.)
• Gender, Technology and Innovation
• Innovation in the Informal Economy
• Indicators for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI)
• R&D and Technology Transfer (Sub-Themes: University-Industry Linkages, etc.)
• Innovations in Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals
• IPR, Standards & Regulations in Science, Technology & Innovation (STI)
• Foresights and Futures for Technology
Expression of interests is invited for those interested to participate in training workshop. Training workshop is especially directed for those undertaking M.Phil./ PhD in Science-Technology-Innovation Studies (STIS) and Related Disciplines.
