As Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Dr. h.c. Jörg Becker reminded us in his keynote in this event Progress Comes into Life through the Exchange of Ideas by Albert Einstein.

Nowadays we face with a remarkable number of issues to be resolved as the world changes toward a post-COVID-19 future, as well as an important range of opportunities to develop new approaches, expand new industries, and establish new realities.

This first international virtual research Ideathon took place over the weekend, on December 11-13, 2020. Brought into life by Dr Victor Taratukhin and organized jointly with Janus Initiative, HSE University, Münster University, European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS) and SAP University Alliances, the event counted with almost 90 participants working in 21 teams from 13 countries, such as Austria, Belarus, Canada, Germany, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Mexico, Peru, Russia, The Netherlands, Tunis, United Kingdom and the USA.
