The purpose of the FINDER Research Excellence Workshop is to develop the publication strategies and research skills of doctoral students in the fields of digital innovation. To allow for interactive discussions and feedback between participants in a friendly environment, the number of participants will be limited to 20. Overall aim of this workshop is to provide doctoral students with the opportunity to submit a paper on a subject related to digital innovation. The workshop will be moderated by several scholars affiliated to the FINDER program and beyond, a.o. from Radboud University, VU Amsterdam, TU Eindhoven and the University of Groningen.

In small group sessions, managed by an experienced faculty, each paper will be allocated a senior scholar as a discussant and authors will receive feedback from peers and other participants. Thus, participants will be required to read and review the papers from other participants of the session. Papers should focus on the participants’ doctoral research. Both theoretical and empirical papers are welcomed, as long as they are closely related to the dissertation topic. Students are welcome to use the opportunity to present their dissertation proposal.

Selection of papers will be done through the submission of extended abstracts (four pages plus two pages references) or full papers no later than Friday January 24th, 2020 by email to Linda Buis – r.buis@fm.ru.nl (Project Management Office FINDER – Fostering Innovation Networks in a Digital Era). Update: Only  2 places left – don’t miss out.
