About IIBG Academia-Industry Exchange

The Institute of International Business and Governance (IIBG) of Hong Kong Metropolitan University has been organising the Annual Academia-Industry Exchange since 2017. The conferences were widely acclaimed for their contributions to the dialogues between academia and industry practitioners, meanwhile laying down various research agendas in business innovation and sustainability. Building on the success of the past exchanges, IIBG is organising its 5th Annual Academia-Industry Exchange ‘Business as usual: How do we turn the new normal into normal?’ on 3rd and 4th December 2021 to provide opportunities for us to discuss and discover new paths to reconcile post-pandemic recovery and sustainability.

The IIBG 2021 Annual Academia-Industry comprises an academic conference and a practitioners’ symposium. The academic conference on “Business as usual: How do we turn the new normal into normal?” will be held on 3rd December 2021 and it will host competitive sessions and poster sessions. In addition, the practitioners’ symposium on “From Agility to Sustainability: Hunting Talents in the Era of New Normal” will be held on 4th December 2021. Both events will be conducted online.
