EMIC ("Emerging Markets Inspiration Conference") was founded in Stockholm in 2016 and it runs yearly since then. EMIC has emerged as a small yet significant multidisciplinary idea conference focusing on future trends. EMIC demands no paper nor conference fee but interesting yet to be researched or published ideas.
