ABOUT THE SUMMIT

On June 20-22, 2023, CARISCA will host the third annual Supply Chain Research Summit in Ghana. The 2022 summit attracted over 450 participants from 26 countries and featured more than 80 presenters.

In 2023, we are moving the summit to Ghana’s capital, Accra, to accommodate even more supply chain scholars, students and professionals. As in 2022, the 2023 Summit will be a hybrid event, held in person at the Fiesta Royale Hotel in Accra, Ghana, and virtually via Zoom.

New this year is a track on practitioner and policy discourse on African supply chains.
