Letter of the President

Dear EURAM members, friends and colleagues,

We are approaching the end of an intense year. It is finally time to rest and take a break to recharge energies and to spend some time with our loved ones.

At the same time, we need to remember that some important deadlines are rapidly approaching.

The next Annual Conference will be held in Dublin (15-17 June 2023) and will be organized by the Trinity College. The deadline to submit your paper to the 2023 EURAM Annual Conference is the 10th of January. As every year, the Annual Conference represents the physical meeting place where all EURAM members can both present and discuss their scientific research outputs and organize formal and informal meetings with friends and colleagues. As the number of tracks and symposia proposed for the Conference was very high, there are positive expectations that the Conference will be a great success.

The deadline for PhDs applying for the Doctoral Colloquium is the 17th of January. As usual, the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium will be organized just before the Annual Conference, the 13-14th of June. This event represents a great opportunity for junior colleagues to meet their peers from various countries, and to develop skills and competencies to boost your future professional career.

Other important submission deadlines for all EURAM members are:

  • 7th edition of the Best Book of the Year: the 27th of January 2023;
  • 5th edition of the EURAM Grants Scheme: 9th of March 2023;
  • 5th edition of the EURAM Edith Penrose Award for trail-blazing scholars sponsored by INSEAD: the 10th of April 2023.

The year 2023 is a special one for EURAM as our journal – European Management Review (EMR) – will celebrate its 20th anniversary. I remind you to support the two editors in chief (Anna Grandori and Michael Morley) and the entire editorial team by reviewing, submitting, reading, and citing the journal.

I hope to meet you all next year at the EURAM Annual Conference and Doctoral Colloquium that will be held in Dublin in June 2023.

In the meantime, let me wish you a happy holiday season and a fantastic new year!

We are pleased and proud to announce that the EMR new Aims & Scope and new Editorial Structure are now published on the journal home page:



The spirit of the pursued renewal,  described also in our Editorial, has been oriented at combining global outreach and community commitment, highly established and emerging scholars and subjects, international relevance and European legacy, and to raising quality especially and distinctively through a strong linkage between management and the social sciences: in the words of colleagues accepting to join in Editorial roles “an elegant intellectual enterprise across the world with European roots” (new joining Editor), “it sounds like you’ll be doing something unique and interesting here” (new joining Editorial Board member, USA).


Looking forward to your contributions!!

2023 Responsible Research in Management Award

Submission Deadline:  January 31, 2023

Attention all researchers:  The Academy of Management invites nominations (or self-nominations) for the 2023 Responsible Research in Management Award (RRMA) by January 31, 2023.  The RRMA recognizes published research that yields credible results, guides practice, and benefits society.  Empirical research published since 2019 is eligible for the 2023 award.

Since its founding in 2018, this award has assembled a canon of “responsible research” – 13 books and 70 articles that are academically credible, societally useful, and have helped to make the world a better place.

Although there are incessant calls for research that is relevant to practice, RRMA is the only award for socially valuable research whose selection signals affirmation by practicing executives that the study’s findings are actionable.

[SIG 06 – INNO – Innovation]

Valerie Merindol and David W Versailles (who co-head the newPIC chair at Paris School of Business) are glad to inform about the publication of the book “Open labs and innovation management, The dynamics of communities and ecosystems” in Routledge series in Innovation, Organizations and Technology (Jan 2023).

The book proposes 10 chapters to understand how open labs, innovation spaces, and collaborative spaces contribute to ecosystems. Contributors to the book are affiliated with the newPIC chair at PSB (France) and with MOSAIC research center at HEC Montréal (Canada).

The book draws on extensive field research (5 years, 40+ cases, 200+ interviews, direct observation) in France, Canada, and Spain. Chapters analyze how actual management of innovation impacts the dynamics of communities, how it shapes the co-evolution between open labs and their ecosystems, and how the management of the physical space impacts the mission of the lab and its role in the ecosystem.

The book is written for scholars in innovation studies and management science. It also informs teaching, public policy making, and professional practice. The book is available from Routledge and Amazon in paper and ebook formats.

More information from http://books.newpic.fr

The authors will organize a “lab” on the book at EURAM 2023 annual conference.

Scholarship and Doctoral Theses

[SIG 13 – SM – Strategic Management]

A doctoral thesis entitle “Strategic management of human resources from the perspective of employees: contributions of well-being at work and the human resource management system” was recently presented by Sónia P. Gonçalves in Portugal.  The doctoral work presented in this thesis arose as a response to the challenges posed by research in Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) concerning the need to deepen the mechanisms associated with the relationship between Human Resource Management (HRM) in the form of resource management practices and individual and organizational outcomes. Well-being was shown to be a central mediator, and HR system’s strength and HRM practices’ implementation by line managers emerged as antecedent mediators in sequential mediation processes.

New Master in Ethics at the University of Lucerne (Switzerland)

The University of Lucerne has decided to launch a new Master’s program in “Ethics” in the fall of 2023, which is new and unique in Switzerland. The new program is aimed at all Bachelor’s graduates from universities, universities of applied sciences and universities of teacher education of all disciplines. The ethics master’s program lasts 2 years and is conducted in German.

After a first part on fundamentals, students can choose from three specializations in a second part of the program, all three allow them to deepen their scientific knowledge and open up promising perspectives on the job market:

  1. Business, Finance and Corporate Ethics.
  2. Health Ethics
  3. Ethics of digital transformation.

Numerous topics of public discussion have an ethical dimension at their core. Ethical issues also play an increasingly important role in everyday professional life. Not only in healthcare and research, but also in companies, private and public institutions. Accordingly, the need for ethical orientation and for specific ethical expertise has grown in recent years. In order to meet this need, but also to address the concern to assume more ethical responsibility as individuals and as a society, we are now offering this Master’s program in “Ethics”, which is unique and innovative in Switzerland.

The new program is offered by the Institute of Social Ethics ISE in cooperation with all faculties of the University of Lucerne. Prof. Dr. Peter G. Kirchschläger, head of the Institute of Social Ethics ISE, is the director of studies of the new master program “Ethics”.

Innovation in Teaching Methods

Bellevue University DBA Course Developer Dr. Julia Cronin-Gilmore and Course Designer Dr. Tracy Gies Develop an Innovate Teaching Method

Since over fifty percent of students are visual learners, an innovative approach was developed to replicate a published research study as a storytelling video. Students at Bellevue University completing qualitative research learned about one approach each of five weeks (narrative, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnographic, and case study research), viewed the storytelling video, and as part of a discussion question described the strengths and limitations of the study. At the end of the course, students completed a survey using a 5-point Likert agreement scale reporting how the storytelling cases improved their knowledge, focus, recall, engagement, and using storytelling in a course. Initial results showed a positive correlation between the videos and student understanding and engagement.
