Academic Career Development Workshop on 24 November 2022: for PhD candidates and early career scholars. Dr. Garima Sharma will give a keynote about bridging the research-practice gap and creating research impact. Leading journal editors will also provide insights about impact publishing. The workshop takes place on-location at Maastricht School of Management. Bursaries are available for travel if accepted.
The overarching conference theme is the collaborative nature of addressing grand challenges, and in particular sustainability and circularity transitions (Ferraro et al., 2015; George et al., 2016). One focus within that theme will be the role that orchestrators (also referred to as conveners, brokers or interveners) play in advancing these transitions by launching and governing multi-stakeholder collaborations (Dorado & Vaz, 2003; Gray & Purdy, 2018; Paquin & Howard-Grenville, 2013; Stadtler & Probst, 2012). Organizing and mobilizing diverse stakeholders in inter-organizational collaborations is however fraught with tensions and challenges (Ansell & Gash, 2007; Bowen et al., 2018; Van Hilleet al., 2019) and we invite scholars to submit papers that explore these challenges and how these are governed. Another focus of the conference is on the legitimacy of multi-stakeholder collaborations and how it is established and attributed among various internal and external stakeholders (Rueede & Kreutzer, 2015; Schouten & Glasbergen, 2011). Furthermore, we invite papers that explore the empirical phenomenon of multi-stakeholder collaborations, looking at how they emerge, intersect, compete, or persist to create collaborative value and societal impact (Alamgir & Banerjee, 2019; Buchanan et al., 2022; DiVito et al., 2021; Van Tulder et al., 2016).More generally, we invite scholars working on cross-sector partnerships, collaborative networks, multi-stakeholder initiatives or innovation platforms that address grand challenges, sustainability, and circularity to submit papers. We welcome submissions that view partnerships and collaborative networks from various perspectives, such as strategic management, innovation systems, organizational theory or public administration. Some suggestive questions include:
Governance of multi-stakeholder collaborations
Sustainability / circularity
Value creation and capture from multi-stakeholder collaboration
