Next Generation Challenges: Innovation, Regeneration and InclusionInnovation, regeneration, and inclusion are central pillars of the future agenda for strong societies and economies, as they are key to overcoming challenges and driving sustainable growth in a rapidly changing world. It is recognised by researchers and policymakers, as well as by individuals, that it is their responsibility to improve the quality of life while preserving the environment for future generations. Economies and societies must therefore plan, act and create a future that leaves room for future generations.The Next Generation EU instrument, an ambitious recovery plan launched by the European Union, recognises the critical role of the four pillars embedded in green and digital foundations in shaping the future. As we navigate through an ever evolving and complex world, it is crucial to address the challenges that lie ahead. Scientists and researchers have a responsibility to explore, investigate and make the world a better place.The MIC 2024 conference aims to explore the next generation challenges facing different industries, sectors and fields, with a particular focus on fostering innovation, building resilience, promoting regeneration and ensuring inclusivity - it is open to all contributions that address the next generation challenges. The conference also aims to bring together academics, professionals, and experts from management, economics, human resource management, organizational studies, finances, accounting, and other related fields, while providing a unique platform for knowledge exchange and collaboration.
