The Conference

The dawn of a new age represents an immense challenge for mankind. The era of a creative society is dawning with the global obligation to organise our economic activities in a new and sustainable way and to define our coexistence as a society differently, namely as Society 5.0 - a human-centered society that balances economic advancement with the resolution of social problems by integrating digital space and physical space.

The creation of a liveable, sustainable world in the 21st century depends in a special way on research and the broad diffusion of its results to the general public. The motto of the 2022 event is:

"Creating the future together"

The Society 5.0 conference 2022 is the second of an annual conference serious combining research and practices. It brings together researchers, practitioners, and thought leaders to present and discuss their most recent research results, innovations, experiences, concerns, challenges, and trends and also enables conversations and the exchange of ideas between academics, industry practitioners and the public. Therefore, «Creating the future together» is meant to be an option to provide an informal environment to learn and trigger discussion. After the challenges of the lockdowns and during these times of great change it is as important as ever for us to come together and share what we have learned over the last years.

The Society 5.0 conference «Creating the future together» is going to deal with a large range of opportunities and challenges of the society and business of the future. We encourage contributions from experienced and young researchers and practitioners from industry, and look forward to meeting old and new friends in June 2022.


The conference will be hybrid (online and physical) and held at the FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland from 20th to 22nd June 2022.

The biennial conference series is jointly organized by the Universidad EAFIT (Colombia), the University of Pretoria (South Africa), University of Camerino (Italy), the Business School of the Shenzhen Technology University (China), the Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (Malaysia), Putra Business School (Malaysia) and the FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland.
