Please download the PhD workshop call for proposals.


Pre ERNOP conference workshop for PhD students with an interest in philanthropy.

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. Participants briefly present their research plans and discuss them with each other.

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.


12 July, 2017


The pre ERNOP conference workshop for PhD students will take place at the conference venue at Copenhagen Business School.


Candidates from all nations and all disciplines are welcome to apply.

Candidates in an early stage of their dissertation research (e.g., preparing a dissertation proposal, working on their literature review or a first paper) will be prioritized.

A limited number of travel and accommodation grants (€250 each) is available for students who have no other funding to attend the workshop. For more information, please contact Barry Hoolwerf at .


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.
