Contemporary Challenges and Futuristic Approaches for Creating Sustainable Society Robust infrastructure and sufficiency of energy are fundamental imperatives for development of any economy around the globe. There is huge gap between energy needs of developed world and developing countries. Our earth has limited natural resources to fulfill our energy needs; hence we have to think seriously on saving our energy resources for future generations. We need to create sustainable habitats, cities, communities for our better life. To achieve this objective, people, industries, communities and the governments need to work together. The Paris Climate Change Agreement 2015 ensures that all the countries across the world should work together to combat climate change and balance our energy needs for the better world. School of Petroleum Management (SPM), Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, Gandhinagar is organizing International Conference on Energy and Infrastructure Management-2018 (ICEIM 2018) in its 6th edition with an objective & scope to deliberate, discuss and document key contemporary issues relevant to managing energy & infrastructure sector with reference to emerging economies.
The Management School was first established as the Institute of Petroleum Management, Gandhinagar (IPMG) in 2006 by GERMI (Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute), established as a trust and a society by GSPC (Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation), a Government of Gujarat undertaking. Subsequently in 2007, when GERMI established Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, IPMG became the constituent of PDPU and changed the name to School of Petroleum Management (SPM). The school has been set up as a center of excellence to impart formal education and training programmes to students and executives. It offers a wide array of professional courses like MBA, PGDPM-X, MDP and Ph.D. with dedicated fulltime faculty members and best-in-class course structure and facilities. In addition to teaching, the School is engaged in training, research, consulting and dissemination of body of knowledge largely in all the functional areas of management and specifically in energy and infrastructure domain.
