Trinity lends support to EURAM 2020 conference
Trinity Business School has shown its support to EURAM by assisting with the provision of the EURAM 2020 academic conference.
The EURAM 2020 conference, organised by the European-based community of engaged management scholars EURAM (European Academy of Management), will involve leading academics discussing the top concerns that these institutions are currently facing.
As part of the conference, which will take place virtually from 4-6 December, the institution and invested academics will aim to address the top concerns which businesses are facing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The plans that were covered in the conference included using the latest business research to tackle pressing environmental concerns, and disruptive technologies.
EURAM 2020 conference will take place virtually from 4-6 December
The EURAM 2020 Conference, supported by Trinity Business School, will be held virtually from 4 to 6 December.
The Conference Programme Committee will be made up of key academics and business researchers, including; Conference Chair, Andrew Burke (from Trinity Business School at Trinity College Dublin), the Vice President of Conferences, Eythor Ivar Jonsson (from Akademias & Copenhagen Business School, Denmark) and the Vice President of Strategic Interest Groups, Rémi Jardat (from Université Evry-Val d’Essonne, France).
The committee will be joined by senior industry executives, including Danny McCoy, CEO of IBEC, Cathriona Hallahan, Managing Director of Microsoft Ireland, and John Herlihy, Vice President and Managing Director (EMEA) at LinkedIn.
Conference an ‘opportunity to look inwardly and outwardly’
Professor Kathrin M. Moeslein, President of EURAM and HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management, expressed her pleasure at this development.
“I am impressed by the developments and maturity of EURAM. As a founding member I still remember its beginnings 20 years ago.
“As I now, in 2020, start my presidency, EURAM has well over 2,000 members – management scholars located in Europe and beyond. The 2020 EURAM Annual Conference will give us the opportunity to look inwardly and outwardly.
“More than ever, there are opportunities to seize, the future is now. There is much to do to make our economies, public health structures, for and non-for-profit organisations thrive again. Let us jointly help our Academy to mature further, to grow in quality and quantity and to strengthen the commitment of all of us to jointly serve society!”
Professor Andrew Burke, Dean of Trinity Business School, corroborated these hopes for the upcoming conference.
“We had been looking forward to hosting this conference in Dublin but the Covid-19 pandemic has forced us to innovate and so now EURAM will host its first ever online conference.
“It is somewhat serendipitous that the 2020 EURAM conference which is focusing on ‘The Business of Now’ where business school research is used to provide guidance and solutions to immediate problems, should itself be catapulted into an innovative online conference as a result of the limitations imposed by Covid-19 social distancing requirement and travel restrictions. I think this gets the theme of our conference off to a flying start.”
Earlier this year, Trinity Business School teamed up with Irish business confederation Ibec to launch a series of workshops and seminars for businesses on the impact of COVID-19.
