The 18th International Symposium SymOrg will welcome Circle U. partners and their vision for students – to become more innovative and sustainably driven!

The history of SymOrg and what is happening this year

Between June 12-14, 2022, the Faculty of Organizational Sciences, University of Belgrade, will organize the 18th International Symposium SymOrg in Belgrade. For over three decades, SymOrg has been a meeting point for both the academia and practice – companies, the public sector, and other relevant organizations and institutions – all with the aim of promoting the most recent theoretical and practical research results in management and IT.

The focus of this years’ SymOrg is Sustainable Business Management and Digital Transformation. Since the Symposium is being held two and a half years after COVID-19 appeared, organizers encourage researchers to analyze key topics and challenges in the light of the current pandemic, explore viable alternatives, and indicate implications for the post-pandemic world. 

Great opportunity for all researchers

As part of the Symposium, researchers will have the opportunity to present the newest results of their research. This emphasizes the organizers’ goal to promote and strengthen research work and present original results and great achievements of motivated researchers.

This year, the focus will be on research regarding the following topics: Blockchain Technology in Business and Information Systems; Business Analytics; Sustainable Management; Digital Transformation; E-Business; LEAN Business Systems; Human Resources, Communication and Marketing in Post-COVID Era. 

Circle U. Panel

Academic staff and business representatives often ask themselves how to engage students to become more innovative and sustainably driven. The Circle U. Panel will definitely give some insights and significant answers to these doubts, while referring to promoting sustainable development and innovative thinking by students and professors within the European Alliance of Universities.

The panel is intended for teaching staff, business representatives, start-ups, and students. The main idea is to present successful practices at the Faculty of Organizational Sciences and exchange different perspectives of participants from other countries, with the contribution of students who will share their experiences from international competitions in solving case studies.

The Circle U. Panel is a combination of domestic and international best practices for improving knowledge and skills in solving business problems, emphasising sustainable student-led innovation and encouraging critical thinking.


The Circle U. Panel will bring together domestic and international experts, experienced professors and students, who will share their experiences and exchange ideas for future sustainable and innovative projects.
