Digital transformation is opening new opportunities for the management of purchasing and supply chains, making “big data” available and offering analytical tools to manage them, but also allowing networking and sharing innovative ideas. This enables both the disruption of existing practices and technologies, as well as new ways to tackle sustainability challenges, e.g., through better transparency and control of supply chain risk.

The conference will provide a forum for academics and practitioners to present research papers and discuss opportunities to improve effectiveness and creativity in organizations through the design of innovative purchasing and supply chain strategies (i.e., procurement innovation). The underlying intent of the conference is to gain a better understanding of strategic radical changes and innovations with environmental, ethical and responsible organizational performance.
