22nd Annual Meeting of the German Association of Sport Economics and Sport Management in Munich, May 24-26, 2018

Host
Chair of Sport and Health Management (Technical University of Munich) and German Association of Sport Economics and Sport Management e.V.

Theme of main conference (May 25-26)
Innovation economics and management in sport

There is empirical evidence that innovation and human capital promote economic growth. This is also true for the sports industry. Current research deals with the situational and personal factors that influence innovation as well as innovation outcomes for the society. Further analyses and forecasts are needed in sports, particularly against the background of the European club system, volunteer engagement as well as political and sport-related challenges. The conference aims at capturing the many innovations in sports as well as the antecedents and effects. It also aims at helping stakeholders make predictions for the future.

Keynote
Johann Füller (University of Innsbruck).
