PhD workshop, 21 June, Lille, France

Goal & Philosophy of the Ph.D Workshop 

The PhD Workshop is a one-day event, aiming the development and mentoring of Phd students whose thesis handles an issue relating to business models in a broad sense. It provides a good opportunity to receive depth feed-backs on earlier or later stage projects of the PhDs, whatever the methodology or the empirical field of the thesis. It allows also building a network of peers working on the business models coming from various backgrounds, institutions, disciplines and countries.  

Please, note that the spirit of the PhD workshop is to be opened to any projects whatever its stage, providing the PhD student submits a short bio and a statement about PhD thesis.

Organization of the PhD workshop

First, it is important to note that PhD students may submit a paper for the main conference. They may also register only for the PhD workshop without having submitted a paper for the main conference. PhD students attending the main conference may also attend to the PhD workshop providing they also apply for the PhD workshop.

  • A statement of your PhD thesis (2 to 3 pages) underlining: (a) your research questions (or if you have just started, your ambition); (b) the literature you refer to; (c) your methods and eventually empirical fields you investigate or will investigate; (d) your expected contributions (if any at this stage).

You will receive further details and information after sending your application to the convenors of the PhD workshop.
