The objective of this two-day “Business and Society Research Seminar” (formerly “CSR Research Seminar”) is to bring together doctoral students, emerging scholars, and more experienced academics to present and discuss their research projects and receive feedback. We will explore commonalities as well as differences in each other’s research approaches and themes in an inspiring, sociable, and convivial academic setting. Similarly to previous editions of the seminar, the two-day research event will be composed of plenary, thematic, and workshop sessions dedicated to research methodology and publication strategy. Furthermore, we will put an emphasis on collaboration and dialogue with practitioners. All sessions will involve fellow PhD students, emerging scholars, and more experienced researchers.
