11th Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge Conference (Formerly GIKA). Challenges and Opportunities for Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge: How are Technology, Information and Marketing affecting the Interconnected World?

June 23-25, 2020

According to the law on data protection, you have to register on the ACIEK platform every year, that means that the mail and password generated in previous conferences are not valid.


 The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the academic community in multiple ways, with canceled in-person events and even classes. We are also aware of our responsibility in taking precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our participants. This is why this year we have decided to do the ACIEK Conference virtually.

 All presentations and papers will have the same chances of being published in the affiliated journals of the 2020 Conference in this virtual format as they had in previous in-person ACIEK Conferences. You will receive feedback and review comments in July/August after the 2020 ACIEK Conference.

Hence, to facilitate the administration of the conference, we still encourage you to complete the registration as soon as possible. Should you have any question, please contact OKRE, cristina.bonet@okreobservatory.com
