On June 20-22, 2023, CARISCA hosted the third annual Supply Chain Research Summit in Ghana. The summit attracted over 600 participants from 59 countries and featured more than 90 presenters.
In 2024, we are moving the summit to Kenya's capital, Nairobi, to accommodate even more supply chain scholars, students and professionals. As in 2023, the 2024 Summit will be a hybrid event, held in person at the Strathmore University, Nairobi, Kenya, and virtually via Zoom.
