SAP Academic Community Conference APJC 2022 Research Workshop
Digital Transformation and Sustainable Development Goals in Asia-Pacific
CALL FOR PAPERS
In 2015, world leaders adopted the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) at the heart of the 2030 agenda for sustainable development. The agenda and goals serve as the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, representing an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.
SAP and the SAP University Alliances (UA) Asia Pacific, Japan and Greater China (APJC) are committed to using our extensive resources and expertise in digital transformation to make a positive global impact.
The UA seeks to gather scientists, technology leaders and researchers from across the region and work with various partners on research projects that creates solutions towards better health and well-being, economic empowerment, responsible supply chains, circular economy, reduction of emissions, equality, and inclusive education. We also promote research that explores the implications of technologies on risk, compliance, efficiency, and innovative business models that are necessary to thrive and sustain development in an increasingly digital economy.
