Dear EURAM members and friends,

Join us in Dublin 10-12th of June 2020 for the 20th Anniversary of the EURAM conference!

With our theme The Business of Now: the future starts here, we invite you to participate in the debate about how to respond to the immediacy required by business and society.

In the 21st century environment, university business research has been very effective in highlighting the issues that need to be addressed by management ranging from disruptive technologies; to potential environmental catastrophe; to social inclusion; to ethical business and ultimately to the stainability of free markets and their ability to deliver the social and economic goals that were assumed integral to the liberal capitalist system of the last Century. Business researchers have a key role to play here as managers turn to them both for thought leadership and for the latest research findings to guide leaders to make timely decisions to overcome these challenges facing business and society.

To this end, we are in the ‘Business of Now’ responding to the immediacy required by business and society. We need to help solve the managerial tension between the present and future. Indeed, the Business of Now is a request from future generations to help guide the managers and leaders of today to: address climate change before it is too late; to be able to turn the futuristic visions of markets and new technologies into practical options for the business of today which will provide a platform for the future which best serves society; to make decisions today that will not just respond to market forces but shape them so that they serve business and society in a more inclusive and sustaining manner; and ultimately to provide the template for business serving intergenerational stakeholders where managers create, rather than plunder the wealth and opportunities of future generations.

So we are at a pivotal point in our history in terms of needing to make urgent decisions to safeguard the environment. We also need to set a blueprint for business management that will enable society to benefit from technological progress and free markets. In keeping with earlier conference themes concerned with the relevance of research for business, the EURAM 2020 conference seeks to propel, nurture and disseminate research which addresses the Business of Now!
It is timely that we are addressing an inter-generational research topic in 2020 when EURAM is celebrating its 20th anniversary and so nearly embracing a full generation of management scholars. So join us in Trinity Business School’s new state of the art building on Trinity College Dublin’s 400 year old stunning campus, at the centre of the vibrant European City of Dublin.

The more detailed programme will be posted on our website in due time.

To submit your full paper to EURAM 2020:  

I. Explore the tracks sponsored by one of the 14 EURAM Strategic Interest Groups (SIGs) or by the 2020 Local Organising Committee and choose the topic and community that correspond best to your research.
II. Please respect the deadlines, especially the paper submission deadline: 14 January 2020 - 2 pm Belgian time.
III. Please, comply with the authors’ guidelines. 
I. Explore our SIGs and tracks (for more detail click on the SIG title)
For newcomers to our community: Our 14 SIGs are the building blocks of EURAM. SIG Chairs and Officers nurture communities of scholars who are engaged in specific research areas. There are three types of Tracks. General Tracks are the overarching tracks of the SIGs. Standing tracks are ongoing conversations that you can join, and which will continue within a SIG for a number of years. Finally, every year there are Tracks that are selected in a competitive submission and review process (they may become standing tracks in the future if they prove to be of continued interest). Each SIG General Track invites contributions from all areas related to the SIG specific research area but which are not explicitly covered by other tracks within the SIG.

  3. To facilitate the blind review process, remove ALL authors identifying information, including acknowledgements from the text, and document/file properties. (Any submissions with author information will be automatically DELETED; author information and acknowledgements are to be included in a SEPARATE document).
  4. The abstract should not exceed 400 words and should be included both in the PDF and the submission form.
  5. Include 3 keywords in the submission form. A maximum of 6 keywords is allowed.
  6. The entire paper (title page, abstract, main text, figures, tables, references, etc.) must be in ONE anonymised document created in PDF format.

The city is home to famous traditional Irish pubs, seats of government, museums and theatres and many of the top global corporations. Trinity’s historic campus is an oasis at the heart of the city, with Lonely Planet listing its Old Library as a ‘must see’. We are looking forward to seeing you there in June.
