On 25th January 2021, we proposed an activity in collaboration between IAKM and the University of Padua, which we feel can be an interesting format for the future. Every year we organize a seminar for our PhD students in "Management Engineering", on the topic of Innovation Management & Knowledge Management. This year we were forced to move all the teaching activities online. We decided to make the most out of it, and organized a "remote workshop". We had the chance to invite our colleagues Constantin Bratianu, Juan Gabriel Cegarra Navarro, Alexeis Garcia Perez, Vincent Ribiere, Anthony Wensley and Malgorzata Zieba to give a presentation about their view of the proposed topic and a glance at their recent research. We take the opportunity to sincerely thank them all!
Also, while in the past the attendance (in presence) was obviously limited to our students, being online we could open the workshop to all other PhD students and colleagues, members or friends of our Association. In the end, we had an attendance of almost 20 people. It was great!
Maybe with some adjustments, we believe this format can be an interesting model for future activities of dissemination, especially in favour of youg researchers and practitioners, and add value to our Association. In addition, this can help our students to meet online, know each other's work, and collaborate.
For those that are interested, presentations can be found at:
Some video recordings will also uploaded to our IAKM Youtube Channel.
We invite you all to work with us in this project for some similar future initiatives!
