We had scheduled the DRUID21 conference for June 14-16, 2021 at Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, Canada.  Unfortunately, with the COVID-19 health crisis still unresolved, we have been forced to postpone DRUID21. Dates and location will be announceed as soon as possible. We are working hard to make it for October 2021 in Copenhagen.

The event in Toronto will be rescheduled to a later year.



The DRUIDph21 Academy Conference, scheduled for January 20-22, 2021  at University of Aalborg, Denmark, has been cancelled due to the global health crisis. The next DRUID Academy  conference will be held in 2022.



The global health crisis makes us unable to hold the DRUID20 conference as planned June 15-17. Given the current uncertainty as to the duration of the crisis, we are not planning any other DRUID events in 2020. In the 25 years of its existence, this is the first time DRUID has cancelled or even shifted an event, and we send our sincere apologies to those of you who have submitted papers or kindly volunteered to review papers for us.

We had looked forward to celebrating our silver anniversary with an extraordinary professional and social program in Copenhagen in June. Instead, we send our sympathy to those around the world having suffered and those who continue to work hard to minimize further damage as the health crisis unfolds.

The DRUID21 conference will be held June 14-16, 2021 at Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, Canada.  The DRUID21 Academy PhD training conference will take place January 20-22 in Aalborg, Denmark.

Until we see you again at DRUID, you may want to revisit the videos from earlier DRUID Debates and DRUID Keynotes:
