ARTEM Organizational Creativity International Conference seeks to rethink paths on creativity to move organizations towards sustainability.
The objective of this international conference is to bring together academics, managers, professionals and doctoral students in areas such as engineering, arts and management to tackle the topic of organizational creativity in its different dimensions.

Cross-field approaches that merge management techniques with aesthetics sensibility, engineering solutions with management perspectives, or management analysis with artistic tools could contribute to the provision of solutions that cater for the simultaneous need of financial soundness, organizational stability and sustainability. The organizers especially welcome contributions that cover such approaches, exploring new frontiers for the practice of management in organizations.
