This workshop has now taken place.
Under the researcher links scheme offered within the Newton Fund, the British Council and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) will be holding a workshop on the above theme in Tianjin, China on 27 – 29 October 2018.
The workshop is being coordinated by Professor Jingjing XU (University of Plymouth) and Professor Bo LI (Tianjin University), and will have contributions from other leading researchers.
We are now inviting Early Career Researchers (ECR) from the UK to apply to attend this workshop. ECRs are defined as researchers who are within ten years of receiving their PhD (or with equivalent research experience). All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the Newton Researcher Links programme. The application form should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline of 12 August 2018.
The rapid development of internet technology has seen supply chain participants invade each other's territory, e.g. suppliers invading retail channels through social networking platforms, and retailers competing with suppliers through developing their own brands. While this leads to the emergence of a large number of innovative consumption patterns it also brings more environmental problems.
Research and refinement of operations management and policy in different supply chain channels, through adopting different environmental protection and green innovation strategies, is a key challenge for businesses. This workshop will expand upon the National Natural Science Foundation Project “Research on coordination and decision of supply chains considering the members’ risk-averse behaviour under suppliers’ encroachment”. It will explore the problem of green operation management and help supply chain enterprises develop more effective environmental policies.
