This two-day event will be held at the University of Antwerp (Faculty of Applied Economics) to guide young scholars, from fresh PhD Students to early career starters, to develop academically rigorous service research to answer business problems and to further inspire them through their PhD journey. For this edition, a workshop with service companies is developed, in which each company will suggest challenging emerging research topics. Business and academic mentors guide you in constructing a practice-driven academically rigorous research proposal.
We are delighted to announce that the 6th Let’s Talk About Service Workshop will be held in Antwerp (Belgium) on December 7 and 8, 2017; hosted by the Faculty of Applied Economics at Antwerp University.
This year’s theme is “Young Service Researchers got talent : bridging Academia and business”. Over two days, all participants will be immersed in developing academically rigorous service research, and will receive valuable input from experienced researchers and business managers. More specifically, the expert scholars will give workshops on developing and defining practice oriented and relevant service research that connects business and academia in terms of needs and outcomes. A panel of distinguished scholars (i.e., academic coaches) and experienced company managers (i.e., business coaches) in the services field will share their insights about developing and performing academically rigorous service research.
Submit your application, including a Curriculum Vitae, motivation letter and abstract of a recent research paper before September 1, 2017.
