International conference 'Shaping Ethics in Academia and Society: Practices in the Baltic Sea Region'
The Academic Ethics Centre of the Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) organizes an international conference in Vilnius, Lithuania.
This conference is an opportunity for academics, managers, consultants and practitioners from around the world who are involved in ethics management and/or compliance management to come together for sharing best practices and experience with addressing ethical issues within academia and related society and, in the same vein, to contribute to relevant managerial solutions. As organizations are in quest of comprehensive definitions and effective ethics management, broad discussion, understanding cultural differences (notably in the Baltic Sea Region) and experience exchange in ethics management from different perspectives are needed and worth to support. A primary goal of the conference is to encompass formation of ethical behaviour and embedding of ethical principles in academia as a waypoint in a continuum between family; high school; higher education; research, business and labour market as well as society in general.
