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 17th annual EIASM Workshop on Family Firms Management Research is co-organized by Cork University Business School, University College Cork, and the Centre for Family Entrepreneurship and Ownership, Jönköping International Business School and takes place in Cork, Ireland. This event continues the tradition of successful academic gatherings 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), Nantes (2019), and online with the support of the EuFBC Network (2021). 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.
As we emerge from the disruption of the pandemic, albeit still in turbulent times, we look forward to our family reunion where we will connect and rekindle relationships within our family business scholarly community. As families in business emerge from the human crisis of Covid 19, reflections on how they responded to and managed may result in family firms taking stock of their resilience levels. What unique characteristics, resources and capabilities were leveraged by family businesses to survive, rebuild and move forward?
The 17th EIASM Workshop on Family Firm Management Research represents a unique opportunity for engaging in discussion, reflection and learning as we reconnect and advance our knowledge on families in business. While submission of papers related to the central theme, “Family Reunion – Reconnecting and Rebuilding”, is particularly encouraged, the workshop continues it’s tradition to accept articles relevant to family firm management and add value to the development of the family business field. For example, we welcome papers exploring the intersection between Family Business and Entrepreneurship, Strategy, Gender, Ethics, Sustainability, Innovation, Digitalization, Internationalization, Governance, Accounting, Control, Marketing, Practice, Emotions, HR, Careers.
