SEIGOP 2023 Conference at James Cook University, Singapore addresses key global challenges
The SEIGOP 2023 Conference aimed to create a platform for academics, researchers, industry practitioners and students to share their research on sustainability, organisational psychology, and more with other global experts.
The inaugural Sustainability, Economics, Innovation, Globalisation and Organisational Psychology (SEIGOP) 2023 Conference took place at James Cook University (JCU), Singapore from 1–3 March, attracting various experts to discuss the latest research and innovations in these key areas.
The conference brought together leading academics, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to share their insights on the challenges and opportunities associated with sustainability, economics, innovation, globalisation, and organisational psychology. The event was organised by the Centre for International Trade and Business in Asia (CITBA) at JCU, Singapore.
Over the course of the three-day conference, participants engaged in lively discussions and shared their latest research findings and innovative solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing businesses, governments, and societies around the world.

At its core, the conference had a huge emphasis on sustainability, with a focus on the role of businesses and organisations in promoting sustainable practices and reducing environmental impacts. Several experts presented their research on topics such as the circular economy, sustainable supply chains, and green technology.
The conference also addressed the economic challenges facing businesses and governments in the context of globalisation, with discussions on trade policies, international relations, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy.
Innovation was another key area of focus, with presentations on topics such as digital transformation, emerging technologies, and innovation ecosystems. Experts discussed how businesses and organisations can foster innovation and adapt to rapidly changing technological landscapes.
Organisational psychology was also a significant area of discussion, with presentations on topics such as employee engagement, leadership development, and diversity and inclusion. Experts shared their insights on how organisations can create positive work cultures and foster high-performing teams.

In addition, a formal launch ceremony for the Journal of Tropical Futures was held as part of the event. Important themes from the conference, such as sustainable business and management, and economic development, are interwoven and explored in the journal. This enabled contributors to share matters impacting the sustainability of the Tropics and their peoples, and shine a spotlight on significant and overlooked issues in the region.
Professor May Tan-Mullins — Dean International at JCU in Singapore, and Advisor to the Organising Committee — said, “The SEIGOP 2023 conference provides a platform for experts from around the world to share their insights and collaborate on solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. By bringing together experts from diverse fields, we hope to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and facilitate the exchange of innovative ideas and best practices. It was a truly exciting event, and we look forward to the productive outcomes that will emerge from this conference.”
