Conférence DTA23

26 March 2024

How do disruptive technologies enable resilience in organisations and individuals?

Research and Faculty

The EM Normandie Business School Métis Lab, the Fabrique du Futur and the Innovation Research Network (RRI) are launching the third edition of the DisrupTechs Agora conference, DTA23, on 26 and 27 June, whose main topic is resilience.

Recent events such as the Covid crisis or the war in Ukraine have shown how technologies can play an unprecedented role in the ability of societies and individuals to overcome obstacles. The rise of artificial intelligence, the meta-verse and the blockchain in turn open up dizzying prospects, as these tools can in turn play a destabilising role.

The DTA 2023 conference is led by Patricia Baudier, professor-researcher at EM Normandie Business School, with the support of the school's Chair of Digitalisation and Innovation in Organisations and Territories and the EM Normandie Foundation. This event proposes to participants to discuss the relationship between resilience and disruptive technologies in different business sectors and to study the links and synergies between resilience and digital technologies. Digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality and blockchain technology, can help organisations become more resilient by using resources efficiently and making quick decisions to reduce the negative impacts of adverse events.

On the afternoon of 26 June, a round table discussion will bring together General Jean-Daniel Teste (Aerospacelab), Cornelia Findeisen (Deputy Director Le Havre Seine Métropole), Patrick Duvaut (Vice-President of the University of Paris Saclay) and Fernando Valariño (Associate Director Computer Vision Centre, Associate Professor UAB) on the EM Normandie Business School Paris campuses. They will discuss the role that disruptive technologies can play in dealing with unexpected events and sudden changes, but also the place of the human being in the face of these technologies. 

Innovation remains an asset in a changing environment but can create uncertainty at a time when we are looking for stability and reliability. What place should be given to these disruptive technologies? Are they a source of agility or rigidity? Do they make individuals and organisations more reliable? What is the place of open innovation in this context, and, by extension, how can we enable individuals and organisations to be more agile in dealing with it?
The 27th of June will take place in hybrid mode with a research seminar open to researchers only, focusing on the relationship between resilience and disruptive technologies in different business sectors.

The event is free and open to all, upon registration.


The event will take place in hybrid mode (face-to-face as well as online) on 26 and 27 June 2023 on the EM Normandie Business School Paris-Clichy campus: 30-32 Rue Henri Barbusse, 92110 Clichy.
