Young Scholar Day

Published on
February 2, 2018

The ICA CCR Young Scholars Program, the Young Scholars Initiative Working Group on Cooperatives and Corporation and Wageningen University & Research are convening a workshop on Cooperatives and Cooperation.

The objective of the workshop is to give young scholars from different disciplines the opportunity to develop further knowledge and skills on current issues on Cooperatives and Cooperation (concrete content and format is in planning) as well as to give space for networking and exchange.

The workshop will require preparation in advance from each participant (both reading and writing) and active engagement with the work of others during the workshop so that work gets done and we use the workshop to advance our research. In order to make this as productive as possible we are looking for young scholars, in particular PhD students, whose own research deals with or touches upon cooperative topics, such as sustainability of the cooperative model, governance of cooperatives, cooperatives and innovations in enterprising community,  producer organizations, cooperatives and big data.

The event will start Tuesday evening, 3rd of July. The 4th of July will be dedicated to a full-day workshop. In the aftermath, Young Scholars are encouraged to participate in the ICA Research Conference, which takes place from 4 - 6 July in Wageningen (www.wur.eu/ica2018).

Keep here looking for updates, as we will be publishing by March the registration procedures, costs and possible reimbursement for travel.
