Building Research Identity and Pipeline in Strategy and Entrepreneurship Research

September 18, 2021 from 14:15h - 17:15h EDT

Sponsored by: Entrepreneurship & Strategy Interest Group
Organized by: Elena Kulchina and Elizabeth Lyons
Application Required by August 17


Workshop Description

This half-day workshop intends to help junior faculty and advanced doctoral students identify and build a research pipeline in the area of Strategy and Entrepreneurship. It will also help junior scholars develop their network in the field as they connect with each other and faculty panelists, and potentially build research collaborations through their interactions during the session. The workshop will include the following components:

a) Faculty panel, where leading Strategy and Entrepreneurship scholars will share their experiences in building successful research identities and pipelines. Following panelist remarks, we will have a question and answer session. We have put together a panel of scholars with quite distinct research trajectories and paths to success to demonstrate to junior scholars that there are many ways to discover and define a research identify and pipeline.
b) Development Sessions in the form of breakout rooms, where participants will have an opportunity to discuss their own research and receive expert feedback from the faculty panelists and other workshop participants. As a part of the application process, participants will be asked to submit an updated CV and a brief description of their research. The workshop faculty panelists will read the research descriptions of scholars in their assigned development session rooms before the workshop.
