The future of our field of research is in the hands of our students. Investing in the next generation of researchers is an important instrument to increase the quality of research. Therefore we are happy to announce that ERNOP is organizing a pre-conference workshop for PhD candidates. René Bekkers (VU Amsterdam), Anne-Claire Pache (ESSEC) and Maria Gallo (NUI Galway) will mentor a selection of PhD candidates who are in the initial stage of their dissertation research. The goal of the workshop is to help PhD candidates design their dissertation plans and provide them with feedback from the mentors and the other participants. Seminar activities will include a combination of feedback sessions and more formal panel discussions designed to help PhD students advance their dissertation workCandidates from all nations and all disciplines are welcome to apply. A limited number of travel and accommodation grants (€250 each) is available for students who have no other funding to attend the workshop.
