Young Scholars' Workshop

Please note: the application deadline for the Young Scholars' Workshop has now been extended to May 27, 2022. See the 'Application Process' section below for more details.

The EurOMA Young Scholars Workshop is targeted at young Operations & Supply Chain Management (O&SCM) academics in general and alumni of the EurOMA Doctoral Seminar in particular.

This activity is conceived as a way to support the career development of young scholars in the field of O&SCM by teaching and sharing with them the major skills needed in an academic career, such as supervising Master and PhD students, reviewing and writing papers, networking and teaching. Each year one of the above subjects is developed on a rolling base. At the same time, the initiative is aimed at developing the community of young O&SCM scholars, keeping the network alive and providing opportunities to meet and discuss relevant topics.

The workshop

  • Date: Sunday 3 July 2022

  • Theme: Career development - managing your way through academia

  • Time: 08.30 - 13.30

  • Location:  Estrel Berlin

  • Cost: included in the conference fee

As a young academic, you may go many different ways, into teaching/research, consultancy, business, of course, or a more administrative role at your university. Each of these options represents different challenges. In addition, different countries have different ways of approaching, and different expectations regarding, the development of their junior staff.

 

The workshop features presentations from renowned academics with a background in O&SCM, in different stages of their careers, from different countries, following different career paths, and representing both genders.  In addition, a wider and even more diverse group of scholars will take part, as a panel, to engage in a Q&A-like discussion, allowing you to learn about their experiences. Of course there will be ample opportunities for networking, one of the key overall objectives of the Young Scholars Workshops.

The number of participants is limited to 30 people. Professor Canan Kocabasoglu Hillmer from the City University London and Professor Sinéad Roden from Trinity College Dublin are responsible for the organization of the workshop.
