Smart City Institute

The Smart City Institute is an academic institute dedicated to the thematic of smart cities. It is founded on an original partnership between three private companies (Accenture, Belfius and Proximus), a University and its Management School (HEC Liège) and Wallonia.

This academic institute aims at stimulating research, teaching, innovation and entrepreneurship in the field of the “smart city”. The SCI proposes to approach this thematic from a managerial angle (not a technical one) while collaborating with other disciplines (necessary multidisciplinary approach).



The Environmental and Sustainability Management Accounting Network (EMAN), is a thought-leading network of academics and practitioners interested in the exchange and further development of accounting and reporting approaches to support companies in pursuing sustainable development.

Since its foundation in 1997 EMAN has conducted annual conferences and published edited books and special issues of leading journals with new concepts, case studies and analyses on environmental and sustainability accounting and reporting, thus providing researchers, practitioners and conference presenters outlets to disseminate their work.

The global EMAN activities are organized in four regional EMAN sections, each conducting its own annual meetings or conference, EMAN Europe, EMAN Africa, EMAN Americas, and EMAN Asia Pacific.
