International Conference on Business, Economics & Sustainable Development (ICBESD 2018)

Venue : TERI SAS
Date : 22-23 February 2018

Summary

In view of the changing scenario of risks, environmental and otherwise, it has become imperative for a paradigm shift in business and economics. We need a development that will have zero impact on environment and should not be at the cost of posterity: sustainable development. In fact, business is being increasingly viewed by all the stakeholder groups involved as a powerful force in promoting the cause of sustainable development. The future lies with firms that internalize stakeholder inclusivity, resource efficiency, and environmental conservation as key elements in their core business strategy and process. However, it is easier said than done.
A plethora of research works are already in place to take up the challenges. Sustainable business or business sustainability is no more that unknown in our economic vocabulary. The efforts have received a new fillip with the declaration of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) - the 2030 Agenda by the UN.

In this backdrop, the Department of Business and Sustainability, TERI University, the pioneer institution of international importance in sustainability research, has resolved to provide a platform to the likeminded researchers by hosting its annual international conference: ICBESD2018.

The conference aims to bring together stakeholders including academia, industry, government, to discuss the need, challenges, and roadmap to approach long-term viability of business without compromising on profitability, competitiveness, and sustainable development.

Short-Term Training programme on Data Science Applications for Sustainability

Venue : TERI University
Start Date : 10 July 2017
End Date : 12 July 2017

Summary

With the concept of a digital world taking precedence, our lives are being incessantly mapped and recorded in the digital realm. This, among other things, has led to availability of plethora of data that needs to be analysed in order to discover hidden patterns that are far from random. This is done through the field of Data Science. There are several definitions of data science available. Data science is considered to be an amalgamation of statistics, computer science, and application in various sectors. Large datasets of spatial and temporal information are assembled and manipulated in order to improve the understanding and management of complex systems. At its core, data science involves assemblage, management, and analysis of large spatio-temporal datasets for their translation into information that can eventually be used by decision makers for policymaking. Although data science is used in different domains, such as marketing, management, natural resource management, climate change studies, finances, development economics, among many others, an understanding of connection between the field of data science and sustainability is still limited.

Both the field of sustainability and data science being fairly new fields, there are a limited amount of academic resources that have been written about synergy between the two topics. A few academicians and professionals, however, are already working in data science applications for sustainability. Keeping this in mind, there is a need to strengthen the knowledge base by conducting capacity-building training programmes. The application of data science on sustainability can be examined through the triple bottom line/pillars (environment, social, and economic) perspectives.
