The organizing is an evolutionary phenomenon, distinctive because of laws of existence and maintaining all structures in all processes of their functioning.
As such, it is a civilizational phenomenon also that occurs as a component of human, individual and social activities and as a factor in the overall development of man and society.
On the other hand, as a deliberate human activity, organizing involves seeking solutions to problems that occur on the way to achieving specific goals.
No goal can be achieved without appropriate or necessary, or at least minimal organization of conditions, factors and processes needed for goal achievement.
However, the modern era requires new types of leaders and managers, and new forms of organization; demands those who are willing and able to lead the company / corporation / state, in a distinct competitive environment, with all the good and bad sides brought by the globalization of world economy.

The organizers of LIMEN conference have recognized the problem that nowadays exists in most modern organizations: so much management and too little of leadership.

Being a leader means having a certain social impact in order to maximize the efforts of others aimed at achieving the defined objectives.

LIMEN Conference Partner Institutions
The Center for Advanced Studies in Management and Economics (CEFAGE-UE), part of the Institute for Advanced Studies and Research, University of Evora, is a Portuguese research unit created in 2006 by a group of researchers from the University of Evora. Still hosted by this university, CEFAGE has currently also branches located at three other institutions: Universidade da Beira Interior, Universidade do Algarve and Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Faculty of Science and Technology).
The main priority of CEFAGE is to promote high-quality research in Economics and Management. In 2007, in its first evaluation by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), CEFAGE achieved the highest grade: Excellent.
The Department of Law, Economics and Sociology, University of Magna Graecia, Catanzaro, Italy was established in 2011. It aims to provide a significant and constant contribution to the advancement of scientific knowledge in different and heterogeneous areas.
The objectives of the Department of Law, Economics and Sociology, University of Magna Graecia are the improvement of the quantity, quality and visibility of scientific production, the promotion and strengthening of internationalization processes, the encouragement of interdisciplinary integration, group scientific activity and specialization, support for training and research.
The Faculty of Economics, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Czech Republic, represents a significant educational and research institution that establishes an independent and creative environment supporting the knowledge of economic disciplines, the creation of innovations, and transfer and capitalization of knowledge based on the mutual cooperation of teachers, students, and representatives of the business sphere and public institutions from South Bohemia, the Czech Republic and from abroad.

European Professors of Industrial Engineering and Management (EPIEM) is a growing European-wide network, connecting researchers and professors at European universities within the academic IEM field. The goal of EPIEM is to initiate and to foster collaboration between IEM academics across Europe to enhance the field of IEM.
Ideally, an “EPIEMer” conducts research to become a great and inspiring teacher for “ESTIEMers” in order to help them to start a successful career in academia and/or industry. EPIEMers believe that a person who conducts research, is “able to think in an analytical way within complex correlations and environments“. Consequently, as this person thinks complex issues efficiently and effectively through to the end, he or she is competent e.g. to teach at Higher Education Institutions, to complete a PhD and/or to manage an (industrial/technology) firm successfully.
