NEOMA's world

Thematics :

Aware of the increasing importance that a continuous flow of research output has for our academic life, NEOMA People and Organisations department has developed a plan for a series of collective activities oriented to strengthen our research production.

Our seminars’ goal is to have a workshop format rather than paper presentations. As one part of these workshops, we regularly invite external speakers to give a talk on their research projects. In doing so, we hope that these days provide an opportunity for each professor in the P&O department to receive constructive feedback and guidance from others, build connections between one another, and spark a continued dialogue around topics of joint interest.

In the past two years, we have seen tangible benefits associated with these seminars. Our seminars have helped professors in our department to publish papers in various journals, get acceptance into conferences, and attain research funding. Moreover, many of our colleagues have reported that the seminars have helped them started new collaborations and advance on their ongoing research projects.

The goal: We aim to offer a space for friendly advice and comments to research projects at different stages (from idea conception to editorial process) in both English and French and using all kinds of methodologies.

The logistics: The seminars are organised once a month and last either half-day or the whole day. Our typical agenda includes one hour of Challenge and Advise (where professors discuss research challenges they need advice on) and 2 or 3 research project presentations that may include one external speaker.

Organisers: Nishani BOURMAULT (nishani.bourmault@neoma-bs.fr), Helena GONZÁLEZ GÓMEZ (helena.gonzalez@neoma-bs.fr) and Shiva TAGHAVI (shiva.taghavi@neoma-bs.fr).
