Letter of the President

Dear EURAM members, friends and colleagues,

I have great memories of the EURAM 2023 Doctoral Colloquium and Conference organized by the Trinity Business School. It was a great conference both for the record number of attendees, and for the high interactions and engagement during the sessi17ons. While we are still collecting and analyzing your feedback to fine tune the organization of the next annual conference, I take the opportunity to warmly thank the Trinity Business School team, the SIG Teams, the VPs and staff, the guest speakers and panelists, the sessions chairs and discussants, the reviewers and submitters, and – last but not least – our partner DEKON.

The next conference will be hosted by the University of Bath. As usual, this will be the great annual event for all current and new EURAM members. Our SIGs and tracks chairs are already engaged to solicit your interest and to encourage submissions. We will launch the first Call for Papers the 26th of September, and now we are looking forward to receive a large number of submissions. As last year, the conference will include 12 SIGs plus the general conference one. For more information, please visit the conference website here.

However, we can anticipate since now that there has been already a great interest as signaled by the record number of proposals for tracks (67) and symposia (48) received! This number indicates that the next conference will be well attended and successful! I am looking forward to meeting all of you in Bath, 25-28 June 2024!

After we publish the call for papers for the 2024 EURAM conference on 26 September, we are close to launching the next doctoral colloquium. This event will be held just before the conference, i.e., 23-24 June 2024.

We have also started to design the call for paper for the 15th EURAM Early Career Colloquium (EECC), that will be held in March 2024. The workshop will be organized in collaboration with the University of Barcelona. More information will be published soon!

These two events are at the core of EURAM’s mission, that includes also to help PhD students and untenured colleagues to strengthen their research skills and professional network. I am sure all colleagues that will attend these events will receive a boost of their professional career.

Before we will meet in one of the next EURAM events (i.e., EECC, DC, or annual conference) that will be held in 2024, you may have the opportunity to attend one or both webinars that will be held in the fall:

  • “Addressing problems arising from endogeneity in management research” with Professor Marco Giarratana, Vice-Rector of Research and Coordination (IE University), that will be held 25 September 2023, from 15:00 to 16:00 CEST;
  • “Applying for Starting Grants by the European Research Council (ERC)” with Professor Adriana Cristoiu, ERC Office – Panel Co-ordinator SH1 panels (Economics, Finance, Management), that will be held 23 October 2023, 15:00-16:00 CEST

You may find more information and register for attendance at this link: https://euram.academy/euram?service=euramEvents

European Management Review is also very active and attracts an increasing number of submissions and readers. Beyond regular submissions, EMR also launched two new special issues on:

  • Purpose-Driven Strategies, Deadline 31 March 2024. 
    Click here for additional information.
  • Digital Transformation and Organizational Value Creation, Deadline 31 March 2024. Click here for additional information.

Finally, I would like to thank the outgoing VPs for the excellent contribution provided to the society: Dorota Dobija, VP for finance and governance; Pierre Dussauge, VP for EECC; Stefan Gueldenberg, VPs for practice; Rémi Jardat, VP for SIGs; Maria Rentetzi, VP for Science Diplomacy. You may find a short profile of the incoming VPs later in the newsletter. I warmly thank all of them for taking this challenge with passion. I like to only underline that there will be a new VP for Inclusion, Diversity and sustainability as these topics have a growing importance for all organizations. So, we need to take a position and develop practices to address them appropriately.

I am looking forward to meeting you all soon!

All the best,

Alessandro Zattoni

EURAM 2024 Annual Conference

25-28 June 2024

Conference Website

First Announcement of Call for Papers: 26 September 2023

Deadline for Paper Submission: 11 January 2024

Notification of Acceptance: 21 March 2024

Early Bird Registration Deadline: 18 April 2024

Authors and Panelists Registration Deadline: 25 April 2024

Submit your papers to the EURAM 2024 Conference

We are now seeking paper submissions for EURAM 2024, around the theme of ‘Fostering Innovation to Address Grand Challenges’.

Technological development has contributed to the taming of the impact of long-standing Grand Challenges, including our ageing society, environmentally unsustainable economic growth and the health impacts of climate change. However, new and emerging technologies – such as big data, artificial intelligence and vehicle autonomy – have also created new challenges, many of them ethical in nature.

So how can innovation help to solve major challenges without creating new ones? To answer this question, business organisations, their key stakeholders, governments and the academic community must collaborate to develop new solutions, which may require moving beyond traditional thinking.

Our 2024 conference, hosted by the University of Bath School of Management, will focus on exploring strategies to promote innovation in tackling these global priorities. The programme features keynote speeches, panel discussions and paper presentations, as well as ample opportunities for networking and informal conversations.

So far, the response to the call for topics and symposia has been overwhelming. We received 67 topic proposals and a record 48 symposium proposals. The submission platform will open on 1 December.

We look forward to seeing you for an exciting and productive conference in Bath.

Decoloniality Praxis: The Logic and Ontology

Coming by Late October 2023

As Professor Jawad Syed commented, “This much needed book unravels the intricate web of colonialism, neocolonialism, and the powerful resurgence of postcolonialism. It offers a fresh perspective on the roots and widespread impact of colonialism and its various forms, transcending spatial, temporal, and contextual boundaries. Through its thought-provoking narrative, the book invites readers to embark on a profound exploration of decoloniality and the complexities of postcolonialism, and outlines the future and potential of humanity in light of colonial praxis.”

As Professor Yvonne Du Plessis noted, “This book brings to the fore a critical global discourse on the untangling of the concept colonialism which many people in academe, business and public sectors are currently struggling with. The author, who is known for his factual evidence and critical reasoning, has brough a fresh perspective to the debate of coloniality of power, capitalism and Eurocentrism. The reader will come to new insights and a better understanding of the complexity within the term colonialism, specifically if an attempt is made to decolonialize, for example, an academic curriculum, a policy document, a business or community practice.”

We cordially invite you to the Workshop on Directing Early Stage Research in Responsible Management, which will be held on 30 November – 1 December 2023 at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano in collaboration with University of Trento.


The two-day workshop is a follow-up of a similar event organized to discuss different possibilities for carrying out empirical research in international business, which took place in early March 2023.

It takes as its thematic focus responsible management, a topic that also characterizes the new joint Ph.D.  program in Management of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano and the University of Trento. Responsible management takes particular account of sustainability targets and ESG criteria in the pursuit of economic goals and productivity gains. In recent years, management research in all its subfields has increasingly devoted itself to this topic and gained important insights.

With respect to this workshop we are primarily interested in empirical research at different stages of development beyond pure essays, literature reviews, conceptual papers, and descriptive reports.

The workshop aims to further develop early-stage research ideas in prominent management fields such as Entrepreneurship, Governance, Human Resources, International Business, Strategic Management or Supply Chain Management in a joint discourse with senior faculty and peer researchers in order to increase their chances of publication in peer-reviewed journals.

Submission deadline:

We accept submissions via email (RMworkshop@unibz.it) from September until 15 October 2023. The authors of accepted research studies will be notified by end of October 2023. In case you have to plan your travel quite in advance you may request an early conditional acceptance.

Further information will be soon available on https://next.unibz.it/en/events/142882.

The workshop is supported by the European Journal of International Management, Strategic Change, and the Journal of Enterprising Communities

We are happy to share with our newly launched research project “Digital Resilience in Hospitals”.

Hospitals face a variety of challenges when it comes to offering affordable care, optimized treatment processes and innovations to ensure the quality of healthcare. Digital tools can play a critical role with respect to quality. For example, new technologies offer the opportunity to unlock efficiency potential while maintaining at least the same or even higher quality, but also pose new risks. Based on our understanding of organizational resilience and the high need for digitalization in hospitals, our project aims to examine how hospitals deal with the risk resulting from digital technologies, and how this handling affects organizational resilience.
