It is time to create economic and social capital through dialogue and synergy between society, business and the humanities – time to rethink, reform, re-engage and re-empower the humanities.
The seminar aims at fostering a constructive and forward-looking debate about how humanists and managers can collaborate to unfold the human resources of the job market, add value and create responsible growth and innovation. We invite you to join the discussion with humanists, economists and successful managers from The Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, The United States, Great Britain, France and Japan addressing the challenges, opportunities and future of the Humanities.
The key note speaker is the prominent and ambitious British philosopher and art historian: John Armstrong
