Palácio Ceia

The Universidade Aberta, the Universidade do Algarve, the Universidade de Évora, the Escola Superior de Hotelaria e Turismo do Estoril and the Instituto Politécnico de Setúbal are pleased to announce the IV International Forum on Management.

As in previous editions, we intend to gather in this event researchers and professionals whose work has sustained the development of research and practice in the different areas of Management and related areas. It is, therefore, an excellent opportunity to share your work by submitting proposals for symposia, presentations and posters. Your participation will be decisive for the diversity and quality of the IV International Forum on Management: “Organizations in the digital age - challenges for sustainability”.

The IFM is a forum to be held from 5 to 7 March 2020, in Portugal, at the Universidade Aberta. It is assumed as a reference event at an international level, which aims to be a space for reflection and sharing of knowledge, perspectives and approaches, contributing to the dissemination of scientific knowledge, development of good organizational practices and formulation of public policies.

The executive committee is working to welcome you to the Universidade Aberta in Lisbon and provide you with some moments of scientific exchange and sharing, as well as offering you some pleasant moments to socialize.

In Lisbon, you will find a modern European capital that combines history with innovation and technology. It is the westernmost capital of the European continent on the Atlantic coast, which will win you for its gastronomy, cultural animation, climate and landscape. We are waiting for you!
