Letter of the President

Dear EURAM colleagues and friends,

I hope the new year started well and everything is fine with you and your family!

The 23rd Annual Conference ‘Transforming Business for Good’ – that will be organised by the Trinity College in Dublin (15-17 June 2023) – attracted a very high number of submissions: i.e., 1976 in total. The SIG and track chairs have allocated the papers to expert reviewers. Based on the referee reports received, they have decided to accept a total number of 1701 papers that will be presented at the conference. I personally thank all SIG and track chairs and reviewers for the great work done!

Also, the Doctoral Colloquium has been very successful in attracting a large number of applications of PhD students, 117 in total! After a careful selection process, the DC chairs decided to accept 86 PhD students, that so will attend the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium held the 13-14th of June 2023. I would like to thank the DC chairs for this great success!

I remind you that the EURAM conference will also host Labs – i.e., workshop-type sessions where experts examine the frontier of a research field and highlight novel ways to advance the knowledge within the field on the 13th of June. This is a nice opportunity to interact with expert colleagues around hot and interesting topics.

I hope all EURAM members will be able to attend the conference as the program looks very rich and interesting. The opening session will see a special guest speaker: Mary Robinson, Former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and currently Chair of The Elders. Other special keynotes will be David Teece (Haas School of Business, Berkeley) and the two recipients of the Edith Penrose award for Trail-blazing Researchers: Anna Grandori (Bocconi University) and Giovanni Dosi (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna).

While I hope to personally meet you all in Dublin, this year EURAM allows scholars not affiliated with a European university or school to have the option to present their research in a virtual day. With this option, we would like to support all EURAM colleagues that for various reasons cannot come to Dublin.

The year 2023 is a special year for European Management Review (EMR) as it will celebrate its 20th anniversary.

I am looking forward to meeting you all at the next EURAM Annual Conference that will be held next June in Dublin.

All the best,

Alessandro Zattoni

EURAM President

EURAM 2023 Annual Conference


14-16 June 2023

Conference Website

Notification of Acceptance 15 March 2023

Early Bird Registration Deadline 7 April 2023

Trinity Business School is delighted to host the EURAM 2023 Conference, and we very much look forward to welcoming international delegates to Dublin, a vibrant capital city bursting with a variety of surprising experiences, where city living thrives side by side with the natural outdoors.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Transforming Business for Good’, not only because it is the right thing to do – especially as there really is no Planet B – but also because it is the new frontier of competition. Businesses that are unable to deliver ethical, humane and sustainable goods and services simply won’t survive.  We will feature some eminent and very relevant Keynote Speakers, including Mary Robinson, Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and Former President of Ireland, and Prof. David Teece, Graduate School, University of California, Berkeley and co-founder of the Berkeley Research Group,

Trinity Business School is located in a new eco-friendly building which is energy efficient and hosts Irelands biggest green wall. It sits at the heart of a world-renowned historic university located at the core of Dublin, an international capital city and hub for global business. In 2021, we achieved triple accreditation, placing us in the top 1% of business schools worldwide. We were named ‘highest riser’ by the Financial Times, who also recently placed us in the top 5 in the world for student and faculty gender diversity. We are globally orientated and strategically positioned to lean into the businesses and organisations with whom we collaborate. In a rapidly changing world, we present an international perspective and stand at the frontier of innovative research questions that challenge our daily lives.

The Trinity campus is located at the heart of one of the most welcoming and safest cities in the world. Dublin City is a vibrant and multicultural European capital, which ranks as the 7th best city in the world (Lonely Planet 2022). Nestled between mountains and the sea, Dublin is a hub of energy, with trendy restaurants and buzzing pubs nestled beside Georgian buildings and cobble-stoned avenues. Easily accessible, endlessly exciting and steeped in tradition, there is a place for everyone. For those wishing to stay a little longer to explore Ireland, an excellent rail and road network can whisk you to the rugged natural beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way, the immersive experiences of Ireland’s Ancient East or the warm hospitality of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands.

We are busy preparing to make EURAM 2023 a Conference to remember and look forward to welcoming you in June!

We are delighted to invite you to join us for our Doctoral Colloquium (DC) scheduled on the 12th and 13th of June 2023 as Mentors (the mentoring sessions are on the 13th of June only) !  In such exciting times that we are expanding our doctoral education support activities, our flagship programme, namely, DC remains to be a magnet to attract brilliant doctoral students and such wonderful colleagues joining us and making our community grow every year. We aim to support our doctoral students not only academically and pastorally for their doctoral journey but also endeavour to guide them in transitioning out of their PhD, in other words, for their career development. Mentoring sessions have always been at the heart and soul of our EURAM DC and your efforts and contributions are highly appreciated by our students and us.

[SIG 09 – OB – Organizational Behaviour]

A profound analysis of the global literature clearly exposes organizational commitment and knowledge sharing as key determinants of the effectiveness of the organization management process, including human capital management. While much space in the literature on the subject is devoted to the exploration of the above-mentioned concepts, treated as categories subject to separate analysis, the diagnosis and analysis of the relationship between them should be treated as a poorly recognized process.  The main aim of the research project was to identify the impact of organizational commitment on knowledge sharing in organizations where knowledge is a special asset, i.e. in educational institutions. The monograph fills the identified research gap, providing a lot of important information on organizational commitment and knowledge sharing, highlighting the relationship between both research categories

The course provides a comprehensive introduction to NCA, including its theoretical logic, practical application, relation to other research methods, and research design. The one-week summer course is organized by MethodsNet and will take place from 26 June 2023 and 30 June 2023 at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Albeit we also are keen to invite ECRs and close to completion doctoral students that are currently working on a paper that is in need of development.

During the colloquium, participants will have the opportunity to attend keynote speeches about publishing and innovative research methods, to present their work, and to participate in mentoring sessions with experienced academics who are editors or editorial board members of key journals in the field.

We received support that allows for the event to be free of charge and some bursaries are available for a limited number of PhD students. Participation is limited to 40 PhD/ECRs. To attend the colloquium, participants need to submit their abstract and receive a notification of acceptance.
