Call for Abstracts

The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging for leaders and all economic agents who have to adjust their usual way of dealing with legal, business and economic activities. The current situation sheds light on the increasingly global interdependence, and the need for institutional synergies and a better understanding of cooperation and discussion between researchers, educationists, marketers, and policy makers.
