Pre-conference PhD Workshop

European Research Network On Philanthropy

11th International Conference

 When: June 28, 2023

 Where: University of Zagreb, Croatia

ERNOP is organizing a pre-conference, full-day, workshop for PhD candidates. Bernard Enjolras (Institute for Social Research, Oslo), Arthur Gautier (ESSEC Business School, Paris), and Michaela Neumayr (WU Vienna) will mentor a selection of PhD candidates in different stages of their dissertation research.

In this workshop, PhD candidates will get the chance to present their research project and receive feedback. A few weeks before the event, participants will be asked to hand in a working paper (short or full paper) from their research project. To apply, we invite candidates to provide an abstract (500 words) of their project and a short summary (300 words) of the main topic they want to discuss at the workshop. We will share all summaries and working papers in advance of the workshop.

Every PhD student will get 30 minutes (10 minutes presentation + 20 minutes discussion) and focus on one or two aspects they want feedback on from their peers and faculty members. At the end of the workshop, a Q&A session will be proposed, and faculty members will offer guidance on key issues faced by PhD students (e.g., writing their thesis, dealing with reviewers’ feedback, preparing their job search, etc.).

Guidelines for application:

Please submit your application for participation here by February 12, 2023. You will be notified of acceptance by March 12, 2023. The application (one file) should contain:

  1. A short (250 words) motivation letter by the applicant, explaining what the candidate expects to learn from the workshop.
  2. An abstract (500 words) of their research project.
  3. A short summary (300 words) of the main topic they want to discuss at the workshop.

Participation is free of charge, but admission is limited, and registration is required.
