In view of the evolution of the Covid-19 epidemic and to limit the risks of spreading the virus, EM Normandie, the HEC Paris Group and ESG-UQAM have decided to postpone the Georges Doriot Days, scheduled for 27 and 28 May 2021 on the Paris campus of EM Normandie.

Organised by EM Normandie, the HEC Paris Group and ESG-UQAM, the 8th edition of the Georges Doriot Days will now take place on 27 and 28 May 2021 on the Paris campus of EM Normandie.

Theme 2020/2021 :
"Entrepreneurship in a time of societal collapse? Roles, responsibilities and challenges."



The objective of this event is to analyse and discuss the links between entrepreneurship and societal collapse. This approach, which is as objective as possible about the roles and responsibilities of the entrepreneur in today's international society, aims to highlight a reality that is often insufficiently detailed, from this perspective, by the academic world. These days aim to feed and enrich the community's debates, by encouraging transdisciplinary work and international dialogue open to different geopolitical universes, with sometimes contradictory visions, reflecting territorialised realities.
