Introduction

Transformative changes within the socio-technical system are imperative to tackle global challenges and foster sustainable growth for long-term wellbeing. Addressing systemic challenges necessitates shifts beyond individual product or service innovations to, demanding large-scale systemic transformations. Essential for addressing societal transformations are fundamental shifts in innovation cultures, management and governance practices, and mindsets. Future directions for developing solutions for future-proof societies emphasize the following:

Topics

 

  • Multi-faceted Innovations: Solutions must encompass both technological advancements and service-based innovations, intertwined with broader social and systemic changes.
  • Collaborative Engagement: Collaboration among diverse stakeholders from industry, public sector, third-sector organizations and citizens is paramount to harness synergies and address complex challenges effectively.
  • Systemic Understanding: Developing and disseminating innovations requires a holistic understanding of the socio-technical system, encompassing dynamic interactions between companies, policymakers, and citizens.

The RESER 2024 conference is a forum for the presentation and discussion of innovative studies on services to ensure the active development of service research. Scholars and practitioners of management, marketing, engineering, economics, sociology, geography, or any other discipline are invited to submit papers that explore and develop a multidisciplinary understanding of various service issues. Papers can include literature reviews, conceptual papers and empirical studies using qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods. In line with the above, we organize the conference around the following seven themes, but papers on related topics are also welcome.

  1. Future-oriented approaches in building sustainable society: Foresight
  2. Co-creation in societies and ecosystems as an engine for change
  3. Smart cities and resilient infrastructures
  4. Empowering citizens and communities
  5. Service innovation for a sustainable societ
  6. Future directions in technological development
  7. Governance for sustainable solutions

All detailed topics in the call for papers.
