During last week, ReSChape was represented by Rosanna Fornasiero and Frida Betto from CNR, at the conference PRO-VE 2023 – 24th IFIP / Socolnet Working Conference on Virtual Enterprises Valencia, Spain.
Rosanna was invited to talk at the Scientific Panel “Research Challenges for resilient and responsible Collaborative Network”
- Chairs: Xavier Boucher and Luis M. Camarinha-Matos
- Panelists: Rosanna Fornasiero (Italy), Arturo Molina (Mexico), Hervé Panetto (France), Ricardo Rabelo (Brazil), António Lucas Soares (Portugal) and Paul de Vrieze (UK).
The panel took place on the 28th Sept at 14.30 h during the conference and put together experts from different countries to discuss the future of research on collaborative networks to place the emphasis on human-centric systems and the need to address societal challenges in a responsible way.
In an era with more and more disruptive events, including political, economic and social risks are based on collaborative systems with a high degree of resilience. As frequent disruptive events become the “new normal”, it is necessary to advance toward transformative resilience. The panel helped to define the research topics to design and manage collaborative ecosystems that can strive and become responsible and resilient.
Frida presented some preliminary results from the ReSChape project included in the paper “Social Sustainability and Resilience in Supply Chains: The Role of Collaboration to Face Risks “ written together with Andrea Zangiacomi, and Rosanna Fornasiero.
During the presentation Frida talked about a set of social trends such as those related to demographic change, urbanisation and new consumption patterns that put supply chains at risk of disruptions. Through a systematic literature review, this work provides an overview of the risks for supply chains derived from the analysed social trends. Moreover, through the proposal of a preliminary conceptualisation model, it will be explained how collaboration practices can support supply chains in the mitigation of the identified risks by developing resilience and sustainability.
