British Academy of Management E-business and E-government SIG

Norwich Business School, University of East Anglia - 28/29 January 2016

The aim of the workshop

The aim of the workshop is to provide a platform for doctoral students and early career researchers to present their work, receive constructive feedback from experienced academics, and to network with fellow research colleagues. The workshop will be run in two parallel streams. Each participant will have an hour allocated to present his/her research and engage in in-depth discussion with the facilitators as well as fellow colleagues focusing on participant research related issues. In addition, keynote speeches, before and after each stream, will provide up-to-date perspectives on research, focussing on all stages of the research process including theory development, relevant methodologies and a number of career-related topics.

There is no fee to attend the event, but registration is required.

The Society for the Advancement of Management Studies has kindly made a number of travel bursaries available, while the Norwich Business School, University of East Anglia will also sponsor and host the workshop.

This workshop is part of a series of 5 workshops in Ebusiness and Egovernment. Click here for details.
