BACKGROUND

European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) is an international network for management research and teaching that includes more than 50.000 management scientists from all over the world. EIASM’s mission is to enhance high quality in research and doctoral studies in management and related disciplines. The 16th annual EIASM Workshop on Family Firms Management Research is co-organized by Cork University Business School, University College Cork, and the Centre for Family Enterprise and Ownership, Jönköping International Business School and takes place in Cork, Ireland. This event continues the tradition of successful academic gathering that took place in Jönköping (2005, 2007 & 2012), Nice (2006), Naples (2008), Hasselt (2009), Barcelona, (2010), Witten (2011), Helsinki (2013), Bergamo (2014), Lyon (2015), Zwolle (2016), Bilbao (2017), Larnaca (2018), and Nantes (2019). The workshop provides excellent opportunities for researchers to share their experiences, receive high-value feedback on each other’s work, and to form new research collaborations. The workshop consists of plenary sessions and research paper presentations.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Family businesses are a dominant player in the organisational landscape, many of which have been around for a long time.  Research has demonstrated that some variations of this organisational form are more resilient than others.  How do our long standing family firms learn to adapt positively when faced with adversity?  Such adversity can arise from the family system, the business system or the economic landscape. The central theme of 16th EIASM Family Firm Management Research Workshop is ‘Resilience in family firms’ , but we welcome research papers and case studies with a focus on a broad range of thematic topics addressing the sustainability and longevity of family firms.  Potential submissions can address the following topics, but are not restricted to those:
 
    • Individual, team and organisational resilience in family firms.
    • The role of the family in family firm resilience.
    • Developing resilience in family firms.
    • How does family involvement in family firms contribute to resilience?
    • Building resilience as a long-term strategic initiative for the family firm.
    • Innovation and resilience in family firms.
    • Socioemotional wealth and resilience.
 
In addition to featuring state of the art research papers and case studies, the workshop will offer keynotes.
