TU Dublin Hosts Inaugural Disruptive Thinking Conference

15 Dec, 2020

TU Dublin recently hosted its inaugural Disruptive Thinking (DiT) conference in collaboration with the University of Limerick, the University of Pau and the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya on Tuesday, 16 December 2020.

For its first event, the conference organisers received over 100 research papers, with 41 included in the programme. Conference organisers received exceptional papers from a combination of academics, researchers, and practitioners sharing their ideas. The event took place online, enabling attendees to come together during these challenging times.

Dr Lucía Morales from the School of Accounting and Finance organised the event in collaboration with Prof. Bernadette Andreosso-O’Callaghan (UL), Prof. Jacques Jaussaud (University of Pau) and Dr Daniel Rajmil (UOC).

Speaking about the event, Dr Lucía Morales, said, “DiT (Disrupting Thinking) endeavours to offer a forum that encourages innovative and disruptive studies. We are facing serious challenges concerning the global economic, educational and social divide and we need to foster events that encourage academics, researchers and practitioners to question our reality and to work towards a more equal and balanced socio-economic system. We are hoping that DiT will consolidate as a forum open to all disciplines that seek to question the way that our social and economic goals are evolving”.
