Research Seminars

Virtual seminar: Dr Jia Chen Yang - NEOMA Business School (France)

Thursday, 21 October 2021
14:00 to 16:00
Dr Jia Chen Yang
Virtual event

Topic: Speculations on the exits into the future

RISE Talk (Resilience, Innovation, Strategy and Ecosystems) is an inaugural seminar series funded by ESRC and hosted by the Centre for Innovation and Technology Management (CITM), Durham University Business School. The aim is to facilitate an interdisciplinary discussion and exploration of how conventional theories inform our understanding of the phenomenon of RISE and how the role of RISE can help to address the pressing and complex issues faced by business and society, including governance and systems for sustainable development.

Abstract: The first edition of the report on Limits to Growth appeared under the auspices of the Club of Rome in 1972. During the intervening five decades, the world has edged ever closer to the limits sketched out in that seminal report and its later iterations. How did we get here? Probabilistically, what does the future hold for us? What will be the tools to build the future? The presentation will briefly trace the last thirty years of world development (the post-Soviet era), envision four scenarios of the near future, and speculate on how digital technologies will play instrumental roles in delivering us into each of those scenarios of the future.

Speaker bio: Dr Jia Chen Yang is an Assistant Professor of Strategy at NEOMA Business School. Upon the completion of doctoral studies at HEC Paris (University of Paris-Saclay), he has continued his research in the areas of corporate restructuring and governance and has been teaching courses in these areas in the flagship programs of Programme Grande Ecole and Specialized Master’s at NEOMA Business School. His more recent research interests include development and implementation of ESG strategies of firms in key industries spearheading the emergence of sustainable economy and inclusive capitalism. His works are published in the Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions and the European Management Review.
