Best Season's Greetings from EIASM !

On behalf of the EIASM Board and Staff, sincere thanks to all faculty members and delegates who have contributed to the success of the EIASM workshops and EDEN seminars in 2016.

EIASM Academic Council meeting 2017 on Interdisciplinary Research

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.

At the Acadamic Council meeting, which will take place in Brussels on 3rd April 2017, we will be honoured and pleased to present the 1st EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award to Professor Barbara Czarniawska, awarding her exemplary contributions in interdisciplinary research.

Professor Czarniawska’s talk will be followed by a Question & Answer session and an evening dinner. We will also take this opportunity to brief you shortly on EIASM’s activities and offer you a chance to express your views and needs.


13:30           Coffee at EIASM
14:00           Welcome by EIASM President, Chris Chapman
14:10           Keynote speech by Barbara Czarniawska

15:40           Update on EIASM activities

EIASM / FNEGE Workshop on Research Outreach and 2020 Challenge



EIASM / FNEGE Workshop on

Research Outreach and 2020 Challenge 

Paris, 6-7 April 2017

Organizers: Gerardine Doyle, Jean-Fabrice Lebraty, Karl Wennberg

Speakers/panelists include:

Michel Kalika, Université de Lyon 3
Marcel Bogers, Copenhagen University
Marie-Leure Djelic, Sciences Po
Jean Philippe Denis, Université Paris Sud
Ciaran Duffy, Senior Scientific Officer, Enterprise Ireland
Pär Mårtensson, Stockholm School of Economics
Fernanda Arreola, ESSCA École de management
Richard  Soparnot, ESSCA École de management

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 in the Ecole des Mines in central Paris, 6-7 April 2017, from lunch to lunch. (Lunches and the reception on April 6th are included.)
Address: MINES ParisTech / PSL Research University 60, boulevard Saint-Michel, 75 272 Paris Cedex 06 - France
