Bright Fridays | 2019-2020 Research Units Round

31 JANEIRO/ JANUARY 31ST  – 18H00 Local/Place: NERLEI – Associação Empresarial da Região de Leiria TEMA/THEME: “O conhecimento ao serviço do Desenvolvimento Sustentável” “Knowledge at the service of Sustainable Development”  Tertúlia científica mensal do Politécnico de Leiria, de acesso livre, onde investigadores se juntam para discutir e partilhar ciência com a sociedade. Free access monthly lecture organized by Polytechnic of Leiria, where researchers gather to discuss and share science with society. Sinopse/ Synopsis: O Desenvolvimento Sustentável constitui um desafio de importância extrema no contexto atual. A recente aposta da nova Comissão Europeia no European Green Deal, tal como os esforços no âmbito da ONU, não só representam a importância política do tema, como abrem múltiplas oportunidades de trabalho em áreas que se cruzam com as unidades de I&D do Politécnico de Leiria, como o uso racional de recursos ou a economia circular, com particular ênfase na necessidade de colaboração interdisciplinar. A tertúlia proposta pelas unidades INESCC-DL e CARME, procura assim explorar não só o que pode ser o cruzamento das respetivas competências, mas também o que pode advir da colaboração com a restante comunidade científica do Politécnico de Leiria, com as empresas e com a restante sociedade. Sustainable Development is a challenge of extreme importance in the current context. The new European Commission’s recent commitment to the European Green Deal, as well as UN efforts, not only represent the political importance of the issue, but also open up multiple job opportunities in areas that intersect with the R&D units of the Polytechnic of Leiria, such as the rational use of resources or the circular economy, with particular emphasis on the need for interdisciplinary collaboration. The workshop proposed by the research units INESCC-DL and CARME, seeks to explore not only what may be the crossing of their respective competences, but also what may come from the collaboration with the scientific community of the Polytechnic of Leiria, with companies and with the society in general.

GECAMB 2020 – Postponed

The Higher Institute for Accountancy and Administration of Aveiro University looks forward to welcoming you to the 9th GECAMB Conference on Environmental Management and Accounting to be held at the University of Aveiro, on 5th and 6th of November 2020.  Despite greater opportunities provided by technology and big data, the last decade has seen a loss of faith in business information. In fact, the need to ensure the organization sustainability, as well as the planet sustainability makes transparency and accountability issues crucial for environmental management and accounting. In this context, the theme of the conference is “Modernization and Accountability in Social and Environmental Management and Accounting”.
The Conference will provide a space for academic discussion of social and environmental accounting issues by giving participants the opportunity to share emerging and advanced topics that seek to explore contemporary accounting practices and concepts including but not limited to measurement, accountability, transparency and governance, ethics, assurance, extended external reporting, modern slavery and cybersecurity.
The Plenary Speakers include: Professor Massimo Contrafatto, University of Bergamo, Italy; Professor Enrique Bonson, University of Huelva, Spain; Professor Teresa Eugénio, Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, Portugal.
