    EURAM 2024

    First Call for Papers


    Dear Colleagues,

    We hope you will join us, from 25-28 June 2024 in the University of Bath School of Management.

    The EURAM conference theme is "Fostering Innovation to Address Grand Challenges".

    Technological innovation has always been a significant enabler of value creation, improved competitiveness, and economic growth. It has also contributed to the taming of the impact of long-standing Grand Challenges, most notably, the ageing society, the environmentally unsustainable economic growth and the health impacts of climate change. These are important challenges as they have been blamed for causing economic inequality, social injustice and jeopardising the quality of life.

    Although technological innovation has helped tackle several aspects of these long-standing challenges, the development and adoption of new and emerging technologies – such as big data, artificial intelligence, and vehicle autonomy – have created new challenges, many of which are of an ethical nature. For example, the advent of these advances poses dilemmas about the ownership and use of data; privacy concerns relating to face recognition; concerns about the devaluation of existing skills and infrastructure; and risks of spreading misinformation and threatening security.

    The high opportunity cost of not addressing these long-standing and new challenges begs the question: how can innovation help solve major challenges without creating new ones? To answer this question, business organisations, their key stakeholders, governments, and the academic community can collaborate to develop new solutions and ensure that innovation is responsible and ethical. This may require moving beyond "traditional" forms of innovation to include organizational, business models, and social innovation. Thus, there are fruitful opportunities for management scholars to deliver impactful research on the managerial, organisational, and policy challenges inherent in developing the requisite innovations.

    We welcome scholars to submit their research to the 2024 EURAM Conference, which focuses on fostering innovation to address long-standing and new Grand Challenges.

    To submit your full paper to EURAM 2024

    1. Explore the tracks sponsored by one of the 13 EURAM Strategic Interest Groups (SIGs) or by the Local Organising Committee and choose the topic and community that correspond best to your research.
    2. Respect the deadlines, especially the paper submission deadline: 11 January 2024 – 2 pm Belgian time.
    3. Please, comply with the authors guidelines.

    I. Explore our SIGs and tracks (for more detail click on the SIG title).

    For newcomers to our community: our 13 SIGs are the building blocks of EURAM. SIG Chairs and Officers nurture communities of scholars who are engaged in specific research areas. There are three types of Tracks. General Tracks are the overarching tracks of the SIGs. Standing tracks are ongoing conversations that you can join, and which will continue within a SIG for a number of years. Finally, every year there are Tracks that are selected in a competitive submission and review process (they may become standing tracks in the future if they prove to be of continued interest). Each SIG General Track invites contributions from all areas related to the SIG specific research area but which are not explicitly covered by other tracks within the SIG.

    III. Authors' Guidelines for Full Papers

    To ensure that it is possible to publish your paper in the proceedings it is essential that all authors strictly follow the guidelines and formatting instructions for both preparation and submission of all papers.

    For EURAM 2024, the abstracts and full papers will be published in e-format and for the latter, accessible for registered delegates only.

    The proceedings will carry the ISSN 2466-7498 and ISBN 978-2-9602195-6-2.

    Each paper will be screened to ensure compliance with EURAM's guidelines. Papers which do not match the EURAM requirements will be desk-rejected and authors will not have the opportunity to submit an updated version.

    Please read below instructions carefully prior to submitting and remember to select at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals your research addresses (UN SDGs):

    1. Each paper can only be submitted to ONE track.

    2. Submitted papers must NOT have been previously published and if under review, must NOT appear in print before the EURAM 2024 Conference.

    3. To facilitate the blind review process, remove ALL authors identifying information (names, affiliations..), including acknowledgements from the text, and document/file properties (any submissions with author information will be automatically DELETED; author information and acknowledgements are to be included in the submission form).

    4. The abstract should not exceed 400 words and should be included both in the PDF and the submission form.

    5. Include 3 keywords in the submission form. A maximum of 6 keywords is allowed.

    6. The entire paper (title page, abstract, main text, figures, tables, references, etc.) must be in ONE anonymised document created in PDF format.

    7. The maximum length of the paper is 40 pages (including ALL tables, appendices and references). The minimum length of the paper is 10 pages.

    As an overall principle:

    • For your abstract you may have up to 400 words.

    • For your paper length, 40 pages maximum prevails over 9,000 words.

    8. Use Times New Roman 12-pitch font, double spaced, and 1-inch (2.5 cm) margin all around.

    9. Number all the pages of the paper.

    10. No changes in the paper title, abstract, authorship, track and actual paper can occur AFTER the submission deadline.

    11. Check that the PDF File of your paper prints correctly and ensure that the file is virus-free. Submissions will be done on-line on the EURAM  2024 submission system (platform opens on 1st of December).

    12. Only submissions in English shall be accepted for review.

    13. In case of acceptance, the author or one of the co-authors should be available to present the paper at the conference. A presenting author* can only present one paper at the conference.

    14. If you submit a paper, you agree to review at least two papers for EURAM 2024 in the track you have submitted your paper to.


    Each individual is limited to one personal appearance on the programme as a presenting author. This policy precludes acceptance of papers for more than one presentation. In other words, an author can submit and present only one paper. However, a presenter can always be a non-presenting co-author on additional papers.

    For more information, we invite you to visit the conference website.

    Should you have any hesitation on which track to select for your paper, you may wish to contact a track chair by email to find the best fit for your submission.

    For general questions, you may contact info@euram.academy.
