2018 EFMD Research Leadership Conference

Future proofing your school’s research strategy in the 21st Century 

Are you looking to develop and strengthen your research strategy? Do you know where you stand with regard to best practices in Europe and elsewhere? Is your strategy ready for the dynamic context ahead? EFMD's recently designed Research Leadership Programme will help you answer all these questions and more.

Building on the previous successes of our longer Research Leadership programmes, EFMD and EURAM have designed a new 4-day intensive edition, that will help those responsible for research strategy and management to innovate; build new and stronger networks; and prepare themselves and their schools for the new era ahead.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore the challenges that the future of management research in Europe will bring
  • Explore ‘state of the art’ competitor strategies
  • Explore the major changes in research funding and measurement
  • Explore the management process of both successful and underperforming researchers
  • Explore ‘live’ research contexts through visits to top business schools

Facilitated by leading international experts, this professional development programme will be hosted by Nova School of Business and Economics in Lisbon, Portugal from 22 to 26 April 2018. More information is available from Laura Ballesteros.

EFMD promotes management education and higher education developments, and it organises a wide range of activities all open to HUMANE members. EFMD is well-known for its range of accreditation services for the business schools and their study programmes (EQUIS, EPAS, EOCCS and CLIP).
