FINT 2025: Genoa, Italy

13th FINT Conference: Trust Within and Between Organizations

In an increasingly interconnected world, the challenges facing individuals, organizations, and governments are systemic and complex to manage. The Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, rising political polarization, and recent armed conflicts highlight how today’s global system is particularly fragile and vulnerable. At the same time, new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and blockchain are profoundly reshaping internal processes of organizations, business dynamics, and relationships. Faced with the social, economic, digital, and political tensions that characterize today‚Äôs competitive landscape, trust takes on an unprecedented role to successfully navigate uncertain, dynamic, and hostile environments.

There is a need to develop our trust theory and knowledge, both within organizations and externally, to ensure that we overcome these important new challenges and pursue goals such as environmental and social responsibility, decent and sustainable work, addressing global supply chain vulnerabilities and potential disruptions, and innovation in the management and provision of services (e.g., health and defense) to foster collaboration and manage vulnerability even in the face of increasing complexity.

The 13th FINT Conference – Trust Within and Between Organizations – offers a unique and inspiring opportunity to discuss within the community how best to address these important changes that have occurred in recent times. The 13th FINT Workshop will be held in Genoa, Italy, June 18-20, 2025, in the beautiful setting of the Rolli Palaces. Genoa is a city that knows how to surprise with its cultural richness, gastronomic traditions, and the diverse landscapes on offer. A place that offers much more than what can be expected from those who travel with curiosity, openness, and a desire to explore.

Considering how the topic of trust can cross multiple disciplinary boundaries, the FINT workshop encourages proposals and submissions that aim to observe trust through different theoretical lenses and different empirical perspectives, based on qualitative or quantitative investigations, reflecting different careers, disciplines, phenomena, and methodologies.
