IAMOT 2018

We welcome you to attend the 27th Annual Conference of the International Association for Management of Technology. 

The primary focus of the conference is to bring together researchers, scholars and industry participants from around the world to share their experiences and latest research results in all aspects of: technology management, technological innovation, engineering economics, industrial development, sustainability.

Birmingham, United Kingdom

Birmingham is a vibrant city and full of history. As the "cradle of the industrial revolution" the city played a pivotal role in the development of modern industry and commercialisation of production. Being home to the "Lunar Society", a group of free thinking scientists and industrialists, Birmingham has always had innovation and technological development at its heart. At the same time the city has made a huge transition from its industrial heritage towards a more modern and sustainable economy. Today it combines the legacy of manufacturing with modern services, a cosmopolitan population, great gastronomy, and excellent transport links.
