The What's Next Forum is back! Come join us in a unique one-day networking experience, hosted by the Center for Business Innovation at Porto Business School and featuring exceptional speakers in the key areas of innovation, entrepreneurship, sustainability and digital transformation.
This year’s leitmotiv is Digital Humanism, or how we manage to stay human and focus on the right things in a world where digital technologies offer unlimited distractions.
