NSBM, being the pioneer catalyst of the higher education field in Sri Lanka, is marking its presence yet again with NSBM’s first International Conference on Business Innovation (ICOBI 2018). 

ICOBI is scheduled to be held on Saturday (25 August) at the NSBM Green University Town. Many revered academics and other dignitaries are to grace this event and support NSBM in their attempt to craft a responsible research culture. 

Sri Lanka’s only Nobel co-laureate Prof. Mohan Munasinghe has been invited to deliver the keynote address at this international conference taking ICOBI to admirable heights. Science, Technology, Research, Skills Development and Vocational Training and Kandyan Heritage Minister Dr. Sarath Amunugama will also be present to inaugurate this event.

The conference will support over 40 research articles by both local and foreign researchers and academics. The international papers span many countries like China, Ireland, the United States and India, making ICOBI an international phenomenon.

Staying true to NSBM’s vision and drive towards green living and sustainability, the theme of the conference is Business Resurgence and Green Living. Each of the papers presented at ICOBI conforms to this timely theme and joins a vibrant global discussion on green innovation.

NSBM has organised this international symposium in a period where green living is gradually but steadily becoming a lifestyle choice for Sri Lankans. Therefore, the platform created by ICOBI for discussion on green living and sustainability will offer massive support for green researchers in their academic endeavours.
