Doctoral Colloquium 2022
13-14 June 2022
Exchange and Expand
Exchange knowledge, expand your networks and generate conversations with leading management and organisation studies scholars!
Experienced management scholars will share their knowledge about undertaking doctoral research and pursuing a career in academia. They will also help open your horizons and discuss alternative career paths including a practitioner in a chosen industry, an entrepreneur utilising research base, and a policy maker in an international organisation. Learning from those scholars and asking them all the questions you have always wanted to ask is a great opportunity. Do not miss this opportunity to learn about the tacit knowledge underlying a PhD process and to get useful insights on how to complete a PhD in a successful way and how to develop a career trajectory transitioning out of your PhD.
Express and Connect
This is your opportunity to showcase your research and your scholarly mission to different audiences; to connect with an international network of academics and further beneficiaries and users of research; expressing your talent and win the EURAM 2022 Doctoral Colloquium Best Paper Award! Our scientific committee will select the winners of the EURAM 2022 Doctoral Colloquium Best Paper Award among all accepted submissions. This is an excellent opportunity to advance recognition of your research and you as a researcher engaging in this highly intellectual and noble work!
Engage and Stay with us
Identify your way of joining the EURAM community of researchers!
You will get guidance on how to become part of our EURAM research community. We will, for instance, invite you to become part of the European Early Career Community (EECC) and the EURAM Strategic Interest Groups (SIGs). The SIGs are the “heart and soul” of our association and SIG representatives will join in – not only with their scientific expertise as mentors and/or speakers – but also with insights on the further development of EURAM that may be of great value for you as early career researchers. Join us, connect with us, and stay with us by attending our main conference and other events throughout the year. Help us shape the future of EURAM and the future of management and organisations together!

Why Apply for the Doctoral Colloquium?
Have a glimpse of the recorded sessions from the DC 2021 Online Doctoral and consider the inspiring testimonials of those who have already participated in a previous edition of the DC:
2019 was my first EURAM conference and it was an incredible experience. Not only did I get to hear from seasoned academics but I also got the opportunity to have my work reviewed by my peers. The doctoral colloquium was the perfect platform for me to share my research and receive very constructive feedback from my mentors and other PhD students. The mentor groups met twice, the first time to discuss the student papers and to offer feedback. The second meeting (the next day) was for the student to ask further questions or to seek clarification on the feedback given after giving it some reflection. At the end of the doctoral colloquium, I had connected with peers from across the world in very diverse fields of research within management. These chats over the breaks allowed me to give elevator pitches on my research to different audiences and based on how it was received, I learnt to adapt the pitch based on who I was talking to and their area of research interest. It was a very rewarding experience.
The Programme was organised and delivered with the current and future needs of PhD students in mind and echoed the values of the EURAM community. The mentoring sessions were extremely useful, highly supportive and provided a reflexive opportunity to develop and grow. Meeting other PhD students from around the world was also a particular highlight.
I really enjoyed the EURAM 2019 Doctoral Colloquium! I met some great people from all over the world and received valuable guidance from senior academics. The mentoring sessions were very helpful. The Colloquium helped us create an international network of researchers, while the organizers were amazing; they made us feel welcome from the very beginning till the end!
EURAM is a forward thinking, innovative and most of all supportive group of scholars… being part of the EURAM DC has helped me think about my research in new ways and it has really boosted my confidence.
I found the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium a great forum to get feedback on my work, learn from others, and make new friends. The feedback that I received both from my mentor and from the other students in my group was relevant and helpful, and has given me some great ideas on ways to move forward with finishing my dissertation and with publishing my work. The organization of the event was exceptional, the sessions very interesting, and the speakers engaging. I’ve already recommended the event to people in several schools with whom I have contact, and hopefully will be successful in encouraging more students from a diversity of programs to attend.
To participate on the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium is a great opportunity to meet other researchers on the same stage that we are and share expectations, knowledge and experiences. On the other hand, the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium gives us the opportunity to hear several fabulous academics about their perspective of how to develop a good and sustainable research while we get feedback on our work. The EURAM Doctoral Colloquium really represents a good opportunity to think on our approach and to define our research.
I’d like to thank the Doctoral Colloquium organizers for an outstanding work. The Doctoral Colloquium program was very enriching, and contributed significantly for my growth both as an academic and as a practitioner. It widened my professional horizons and contributed to my awareness and involvement in the management scholar community EURAM Doctoral Colloquium
