MANAGEMENT, MEASUREMENT AND STRATEGIC ISSUES

FERRARA, SEPTEMBER 15-20, 2014
INTRODUCING EDEN

For full information on the EDEN concept and benefits, please click here.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

Keeping up with the same spirit from the successful last doctoral Seminars, we would like to extend the invitation to all doctoral students or young scholars working on topics in the range of visualizing, measuring and managing intangibles and intellectual capital from a variety of theories, practices and relevant research methods including topics on entrepreneurship and innovation in SMEs to present their thesis work at the doctoral Seminar.

The Seminar will be highly interactive and will feature sessions of professional academicians and experienced researchers in the field. The Seminar provides a unique platform for doctoral and young scholar students to present and discuss their research work-in-progress and get instant feedback from experienced researchers in the field. Not only do Doctoral students and young scholars gain the opportunity to exchange comments and views with fellow colleagues, but also they become acquainted with, and explore emerging themes, theory and methodology in visualizing, measuring and managing intangibles and intellectual capital.

We encourage all doctoral candidates at every level to apply and present their work, either in the earlier stages (proposals), work in progress (with preliminary findings) or at advanced level (with or without final results). This is because a doctoral Seminar is a place for knowledge diffusion where young scholars compare and cross-examine their research work in progress, whilst consulting with highly qualified professors/expertise and experienced researchers in a knowledge-rich environment that is both motivating and inspiring but also challenging.

Moreover, the doctoral and young scholar Seminar is organised jointly with the 10th EIASM Interdisciplinary Workshop on Intangibles, Intellectual Capital and Extra-Financial Information which will offer students augmented insight into the prevailing arguments, theories and methodologies in the field.
