The future of our field of research is in the hands of our students. Investing in the next generation of researchers is an important instrument to increase the quality of research. Therefore we are happy to announce that ERNOP is organizing a pre-conference workshop for PhD candidates in their initial stage of their research. The goal of the workshop is to help PhD candidates design their dissertation plans and provide them with feedback from ERNOP mentors and the other PhD students. Application is open for all, but ERNOP members receive preferential treatment. More information can be found here.
Pre-conference event July 12
A wide variety of philanthropies operates around Europe, but little is known about their actual societal significance and social impact – not only in terms of intended output, but also measured as unintended outcomes and side effects. What and how do foundations contribute to society? Is it always gold that glitters? On July 12, Copenhagen Business School will host a pre-conference event that will address these questions. ERNOP conference participants are much welcome to join the discussion. More information about the event can be found here.
