2nd EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award


2nd EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award

In 2015, the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) launched a new Award to acknowledge individuals who have made exemplary contributions in interdisciplinary research. EIASM believes that Interdisciplinarity is needed to ensure that theory-building, empirical research, education and institution-building in management integrate knowledge and progress in an era of increasing specialization. This is essential to further develop management as a field that is able to advance theoretically, to provide relevant knowledge for students and practitioners, and to ultimately help to deal with the grand and highly complex challenges of contemporary society.

The award is meant to honour the work of exemplary scholarship and/or institutional leadership. This may be shown in promoting specific cross-disciplinary streams of research, in developing new interdisciplinary theories or methods, in applying ideas, theories or methods from other sciences, in interdisciplinary education or pedagogical innovations, in applying interdisciplinary ideas in practice, in facilitating dialogue across disciplines or sciences, in exceptional service for academic societies or associations, or in serving as an example for others in promoting interdisciplinarity, diversity and/or pluralism across management studies.

The Board of EIASM calls for nominations for the second award to be made by email to EIASM’s Managing Director Nicole Coopman ( by December 31st 2016. Nominations should include a letter from the main nominator stating the grounds for the nomination together with at least three letters of support from other nominators, and the CV of the nominee.

An announcement will be made in the Spring of 2017, followed by the hosting of a special event featuring a talk by the winner made to members of the EIASM Academic Council in Brussels in September 2017. The winner will also receive a €5,000 monetary prize.

EIASM / FNEGE Workshop on Research Outreach and 2020 Challenge



EIASM / FNEGE workshop on
Research Outreach and 2020 Challenge

Paris, 6-7 April 2017

Dear Colleagues,

Research impact today goes beyond academic publishing. Management research has significant policy impact (public policy, industry, NGOs, students) and research is increasingly diffused through media (traditional media and social media). Horizon 2020 initiatives are a big challenge both for researchers and practitioners.

EIASM in collaboration with FNEGE would like to discuss with you how we can support research outreach to support Horizon 2020.

Why research outreach?

  • In today’s academic world, research impact is wanted by academic institutions as well as research funders. Traditional academic output (papers, books, etc.) still represents the academic core production and is a pre-condition for other types of impact.
  • Most stakeholders do not consume traditional academic output but rather focus on practice/policy oriented outputs.
  • Diffusing research in media is necessary but not sufficient to have policy impacts. Simple press releases by research institutions have limited impact.
  • Research outreach policy impact is inherently long-term.

For whom is this workshop useful?

  • Research faculty members who seek enhanced knowledge, skills, and networks related to research outreach
  • Mid/Senior academics
  • Final year PhD students
  • University outreach officers and related personnel working with research outreach
  • Journalists interested in business and social science

What will the workshop cover?

  • How to improve the impact of research both within academia and to non-academic actors (e.g. diffusing research) 
  • How to improve the impact of research more broadly with economic/political and social decision makers
  • Showcase of tools used in the management of social media and traditional media
  • Roundtable discussions and workshops with researchers experienced in in the management of social media and traditional media
  • Roundtable discussions and workshops with journalists and policy makers used to consume, report, and act on business research

The workshop will take place at the Ecole des Mines in Paris on 6-7 April 2017 from lunch to lunch. Located on boulevard Saint-Michel in the centre of Paris.

More details will be provided soon regarding the programme as well as practicalities for registering to the workshop and participation costs.

We hope that in the meantime you will already have pencilled the dates 6-7 April 2017 in your agenda.

Important notice: If you intend to participate or if you want to get more involved with supporting us – or even if you just want to present your ideas – please take a few moments now to send us an e-mail at: We would be most pleased to hear from you and will reply promptly.

EIASM Workshops & Conferences 2017: Upcoming Submission Deadlines

24th Innovation and Product Development Management Conference (IPDMC)
Reykjavik, Iceland, June 11-13, 2017

IPDMC has established itself as the leading annual international conference in the domains of innovation management and new product development. Papers presented at the meeting come from multiple disciplines. Adjacent areas such as technology management, entrepreneurship, marketing of innovations, creativity, and design are significant parts of the programme. The conference has become the focus of important networking among innovation and product development management researchers, for PhD students and junior faculty as well as senior faculty. It is the annual event for researchers in the field, and serves as the annual meeting of a virtual society, with participants who enjoy coming back to meet colleagues. The ambiance is known as friendly and supportive.

Unlike in previous years, the 2017 IPDMC does not have a specific theme. This is intended to signal the inclusive nature of the conference and the community of innovation and new product/service development researchers who participate. Submissions covering leading-edge topics and new trends are welcome.

If you are interested in presenting a paper at the Conference, please submit your extended abstract of about 500 words by November 4, 2016 (24:00 - midnight CET).

More details on the IPDMC and its doctoral seminar are available on the event website

The associated Doctoral Workshop will take place on Saturday, June 10, and Sunday, June 11, 2017, at Reykjavik University, in Reykjavik, Iceland.

We invite all doctoral students from these domains worldwide to attend this doctoral workshop. PhD students in early and middle stages of their PhD research project are particularly encouraged to participate and present their research proposals, preliminary results and their reflections on issues related to theory, methods and analysis.
Upon successful completion of the seminar (full attendance), the participants will be given a certificate and granted 2 ECTS.

9th Workshop on Interpretive Consumer Research
Stockholm, Sweden, April 27-28, 2017

The biennial EIASM Interpretive Consumer Research Workshop will be held in Stockholm. The workshop attracts established and emerging scholars mainly, but not exclusively, from Europe. We are interested in examining the symbolic, socio-cultural, historical, ideological and experiential aspects of consumption and we draw our theoretical inspiration from a wide variety of research traditions from the social sciences, arts and humanities. A key feature of the event, that makes it different from a typical conference, is that we strive to maintain the workshop spirit. This means that it is relatively small and intimate and offers an opportunity to discuss ideas in an informal, friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Submission deadline: December 19, 2016

Report on the 6th Workshop on Expatriation

The sixth version of the EIASM occasional series of Workshops on Expatriation was held in Sicily last September. The programme was Chaired by Jean-Luc Cerdin of ESSEC; Vesa Suutari of Vaasa University; Chris Brewster who is now linked with Henley Business School, Radboud University, ISCTE – ISCTE-Instituto Universitário de Lisboa and Vaasa; and Jaime Bonache from Carlos III, though currently working (as an expatriate) in Germany. 

As in all previous versions, the thirty or so participants included a good mix of experienced academics and newer researchers all with an interest in the subject of expatriation. The Chairs encouraged a positive and helpful response to all papers, so the programme was focused on exchanging ideas and helping each other get published.

Special thanks are due to Vincenzo Pisano of the University of Catania, and his colleagues, for their tremendous Sicilian hospitality.

The participants thoroughly enjoyed Sicily, the programme and the comradeship of the workshop.

Best papers are due to be published in a forthcoming edition of Thunderbird International Business Review.

The next workshop will be in around three years’ time.

Report on the 5th Workshop on Talent Management

Talent management is increasingly identified as a critical factor for success in the corporate world. Yet, academic research on the area has developed more slowly and is still lagging behind practice. The 5th Workshop on Talent Management therefore continued along the lines of the previous workshops in providing a forum for academic debate by bringing together leading as well as emerging scholars working from a range of disciplines with the intention of developing theoretical and empirical work that can contribute to this rapidly growing field of study.

The workshop, hosted at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) on 3-4 October 2016, gathered close to 60 researchers and had a packed full programme with 37 paper presentations along four tracks. Professor Dana Minbaeva and Associate Professor Sara Louise Muhr, both from CBS, chaired the event together with Professor Hugh Scullion from NUI Galway and Professor David Collings from Dublin City University in coordination with Professor Vlad Vaiman, California Lutheran University (Coordinating Chairperson).

Lucien Alziari, SVP, Group HR and CHRO at A. P. Mæller Maersk delivered the first keynote speech from a practitioner’s point of view and identified AI and robotics as one of many challenge to the field of talent management. A topic that Paul Evans from INSEAD, also addressed when predicting the rising importance of technology in the area of talent management in the years to come. The second  keynote, presented by Professor David Allen, Rutgers University, however, challenged the workshop participants to think of talent management in relation to social network theory. Proposing the idea that identification of high potential talent is a function of homophily and network centrality, Professor Allen showed how positions other than leadership could be pivotal to an organisation. If, for instance, looking into trusted advice ties the result may very well be – as was the case for some of the professor’s own research – that an employee at the very bottom of the formal organisational chart is actually the preferred go-to person. The presentation on social networks therefore suggests that there is more to talent than just performance and potential, since there is also a risk that advancement becomes a question of who you know rather than what you know. Perhaps an issue to be discussed at next year’s workshop in Barcelona.

The 6th Workshop on Talent Management will be held in Barcelona, Spain, October 2-3, 2017.
