Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The new economic environment requires, not only a change in production systems, but also a cultural change, with innovation and quality being the foundations for a new management model. The development of sustainable organizations and, above all, the creation of business networks for the realization of sustainable values represent an important opportunity to design new business models, where sustainability, innovation, quality, and respect for the consumer can work together in a perfect synergy, based on an approach that can be related to the concept of Circular Economy. This is a significant set of research topics for the scientific community.
