Conferences and Workshops

The department hosts several workshops and conferences across different research fields.

These events serve different objectives: while some events are purely academic, others aim at transferring research expertise to the society, firms, and policy makers.

Future events 

ASSIOA Summer School 2021-Advanced topics in management and organization theory
6-9 September 2021

The course is centered on broad topics related to social evaluation, from categorization to status, stigma, boundary work, moral legitimacy and inequality in organizations. The material ranges from ‘recent classics’, to papers fresh from print, to unpublished empirical cases. Students will be asked to prepare in advance in order to present the main themes of the assigned literature and discuss empirical material with a hands on approach.

Learning objectives:
- Exposure to advanced and emerging themes (and their established roots) in the field of
management and organization
- Understanding the broad variety of methods (inductive, deductive and abductive) used in
the field in a complementary way
- Learning different abductive methods and Dos and Don'ts in abductive theorizing

Rethinking Clusters: Sustainable and Technological Transitions in a Network Society 
22-23 September 2021, virtually hosted by the University of Florence

Besides the typical themes of the conference, which also characterized the previous editions, this year the conference will focus on the technological and sustainable transitions that clusters, regions, and countries are facing and will have to face in the near future. These transitions change the nature of production and exchange and create new modalities to embark on inter-organizational and inter-personal relationships. The conference will discuss the ways in which these changes are occurring, and the consequences they are likely to have on different places and societies, in advanced, emerging, and developing economies.

Keynote speakers:
- Mercedes Delgado (Copenhagen Business School and MIT Innovation Initiative)
- Patrick Cohendet (HEC Montréal)
- André Torre (University Paris-Saclay, INRA, AgroParistech)
