The University for Continuing Education Krems welcomes you to join the second Conference on Data Economy Law (DELCON 2) on June 10, 2024. Together with the Georg August University of Göttingen (Germany), Masaryk University (Czech Republic) and Kazimieras Simonavicius University (Lithuania), this year’s conference is focusing on the tension between European AI regulation: between legal certainty and open innovation. Relevant issues from related legal areas will also be addressed.

The modern data economy is full of new legal challenges and requires broad-spectrum know-how and legal skills. From the use of automated systems (e.g., artificial intelligence) over big data applications to the protection of personal information – various legal issues arise in the modern data economy.

DELCON 2 focuses on these challenges and wants to provide a platform for legal researchers as well as relevant stakeholders to talk about current issues and possible solutions. The conference also accompanies the LL.M. on Data Economy Law. This program was jointly created by all members of the conference consortium and started in the fall 2023 in Krems. Our most promising students will have the chance to present their research on their master’s thesis to the audience.

For the year 2024, DELCON will be held under the following lead topic: AI Regulation in Europe: More Rules than Innovation? While EU takes the Lead in AI Regulation, Innovation Concerns grow

The available spots for the conference are limited. Registration is free of charge and includes coffee and snacks during the breaks as well as the conference lunch.

The conference will be held in English.

On Tuesday, a conference titled “Implementation of the Unmanned Aircraft Regulations: Opportunities and Challenges” was organized by Air Navigation to share experiences and discuss how unmanned aircraft (drone) traffic will be managed with the introduction of the U-Space management system.

“The U-Space service system will be deployed and tested in the summer of 2024 and will allow drone pilots to monitor the airspace in real time and air traffic controllers to receive information about and manage drone flights to authorize them to fly.

During the conference, we learned about countries’ experiences in providing U-Space services to ensure safe drone flights.

Presentations were made by Air Navigation, the Agency for Transport Excellence, U-Space system manufacturer Frequentis AG, drone operators, and manufacturers.

On October 3rd, representatives of Kazimiero Simonavičiaus University participated in a scientific-practical conference “The Role of Higher Education in Creating Leadership Opportunities for People with Disabilities and Older Adults” held at the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania.

KSU’s Rector Prof. Dr. Jolanta Bieliauskaitė greeted the attendees and emphasized that, regardless of age, physical barriers, or disabilities – we can and should learn leadership from each other. This conference provides an opportunity for higher education institutions to better understand the challenges faced by people with disabilities and older adults, and to address their needs.

Speakers at the conference included representatives from the Ministry of Education, Science and Sports, the Department of Disability Affairs under the Ministry of Social Security and Labor, various Lithuanian and foreign higher education institutions, employers, and representatives of organizations uniting people with disabilities and older adults. Presentations discussed higher education accessibility for people with disabilities, the educational and study needs of older adults, the development of social inclusion and business competencies, and the relevance of inclusion for elderly individuals. Participants from foreign countries shared their successful project experiences. At the conference, a report titled “Inclusion of Adults with Fewer Opportunities in the Education System” was presented by KSU lecturer Prof. Dr. Tomas Butvilas.

On September 21-22, 2023, the Rector of Kazimiero Simonavicius University, Prof. Dr. Jolanta Bieliauskaitė, participated in the annual Central and Eastern European Network of Jurisprudence (CEENJ) conference, organized by the Law School of the University of Padua (Italy).

The Central and Eastern European Network of Jurisprudence was established in 2005. It brings together scholars of legal theory, philosophy of law, and other legal scholars from Austria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Latvia, Poland, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Hungary, and other countries. Prof. Dr. Jolanta Bieliauskaitė is a member of this network’s International Advisory Board.

The Rector has not only delivered presentation but also invited legal scholars from various countries to collaborate with Kazimieras Simonavicius University and discussed the possibilities of organizing this conference in Vilnius in 2025.

On September 12-15 an international scientific conference dedicated to N. Luhmann’s system theory, “Environments. Observed with Social Systems Theory” was held. It was organized by the Next Society Institute of Kazimieras Simonavicius University and the Inter-University Center in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

During the conference, speakers from more than 30 different countries’ higher education institutions explored the multifaceted concept of “environment” in the context of social systems theory and presented the latest interdisciplinary theoretical and empirical studies in the fields of ecology, politics, economics, communication, law, education, and sociology.

The Rector of Kazimieras Simonavicius University, Prof. Dr. Jolanta Bieliauskaitė, together with the leaders of the Next Society Institute, selected the paper “The steering function of the state in techno-economic transformations for sustainability ” delivered by Lukas Fuchs from the Eindhoven University of Technology as the best conference presentation. His work captivated the committee with its precise argumentation, theoretical foundation, and innovative insights.

The EURAM 2024 Conference will be held at the School of Management of the University of Bath (United Kingdom) on June 25–28, 2024.

The theme of the 25th annual conference is: “Fostering Innovation to Address Grand Challenges”.

Technological innovation has always been a significant enabler of value creation, improved competitiveness, and economic growth. It has also contributed to the taming of the impact of long-standing Grand Challenges, most notably, ageing society, environmentally unsustainable economic growth and health impacts of climate change.

The high opportunity cost of not addressing these long-standing and new challenges begs the question: how can innovation help solve major challenges without creating new ones? To answer this question, business organisations, their key stakeholders, governments, and the academic community can collaborate to develop new solutions and ensure that innovation is responsible and ethical. This may require moving beyond “traditional” forms of innovation to include organizational, business models, and social innovation. Thus, there are fruitful opportunities for management scholars to deliver impactful research on the managerial, organisational, and policy challenges inherent in developing the requisite innovations.

During the conference, the panel discussion “Business Schools in Motion – New Frontiers for Management Education in a Changing World” will be moderated by the Head of the KSU School of Business Innovation and Communication, Deimantė Žilinskienė.

About the panel discussion: In view of today’s grand challenges, societies need to go through radical transformations. Business schools can play an important role in supporting and guiding this process. To be able to do so, they also need to change themselves. The panelists of this symposium hold leadership positions at different business schools, some in the center of Europe and some at its periphery. Together with the audience, they will discuss the future development of business schools and the changes that are already under way at their institutions. They will share insights from their own experience and explore new directions for collaboration.

Conference organizers welcome scholars to submit their research to the 2024 EURAM Conference, which focuses on fostering innovation to address long-standing and new Grand Challenges. Members of the KSU community are invited to join and suggest topics for their presentations. First Announcement of Call for Papers: 26 September 2023. Deadline for Paper Submission: 11 January 2024.
