Research Seminars

The research seminars started in the academic year of 2018-2019. They are meant as a place for collaboration, to help people to do rigorous and relevant research. At the research seminars, our students and researchers come together to learn about and to help develop ideas. The research seminars are being developed as well by us, to ensure that research excellence is achieved.

The research seminars are weekly held, every Thursday at 12:00.

They aim to:

  • Create conditions to develop latest research breakthroughs, industry collaborations and strategic initiatives around themes of interest of our department.
  • To con­nect our fac­ulty with out­stand­ing in­ter­na­tional schol­ars from the Management studies field. Schol­ars from top uni­versit­ies are in­vited to present their latest re­search and to dis­cuss the cur­rent trends and devel­op­ments in all ma­jor areas of management research.
  • Help our fac­ulty and PhD stu­dents to keep track of the re­cent the­or­et­ical and meth­od­o­lo­gical devel­op­ments in the management com­munity and to both seek and re­ceive early feed­back on their own management re­search.

•  The sem­inars are sometimes open to all WUR fac­ulties and stu­dents.

From time to time a researchers breakfast is held. Combined with the research seminar, it is a place where junior researchers can ask for input for their research. This is vital for the role we see for the research seminars. They are a place for learning and growing in synergy, in collaboration with eachother.
