Research on ‘business models for sustainability’ (BMfS) is developing very dynamically. But many scholars and also practitioners deal and struggle with the question how to define a BMfS.

Do you want to contribute to research and practice of product, technological and business model innovations in the context of the circular economy and sustainability?

The Journal of Business Models recently introduced new thematic sections and hired new Associate Editors. This includes a new thematic section on sustainable business models!

A new and unique book that systematically combines sustainability transitions and business model research.

This special issue aims to contribute to a better understanding of how past, present, and potential future sustainability impacts of start-ups and new ventures can be properly assessed. Full paper submission: 1 July to 31 August 2021.

the beginning of June 2021, the focus was on Halmstad when the University hosted the sixth edition of the international scientific conference New Business Models. You can now download the nicely formatted, 800+ pages strong conference proceedings.

In a remarkable keynote at this year’s New Business Models Conference, Peter Wells talked about business models and sustainability transitions. He also announced our forthcoming edited volume on “Business Models for Sustainability Transitions”.

ISPIM Innovation Conference 2021 is about “Innovating Our Common Future”. Our Values-Based & Sustainable Innovation Special Interest Group offers a rich track, including 18 paper presentations and four fireside chats.

A new feature of the NBM@Halmstad 2021 conference is to offer a pre-conference, half-day doctoral workshop! The doctoral workshop is intended for students who work on new business models-related topics and are at different stages in their PhD studies process.

We hear and use it quite often: ‘sustainable value creation’. But we still struggle to define and apply it. Our latest Journal of Business Models article discusses the What, the Who, and the How of sustainable value creation.

We are happy to announce that many have already registered for NBM@Halmstad 2021! However, due to several requests, we would like to offer an extension for submissions until 14th February 2021.
