    Friday, February 10, 2023 (9:00 to 10:00 am Eastern): 

    • STR Reviewing for Conferences and Journals: Best Practices

      Catherine Maritan (Syracuse U), a long-time STR member and Strategic Management Journal Associate Editor will provide tips for reviewing conference submissions. This event is organized by Aldona Kapacinskaite and Lisa Tang from the STR Membership Engagement Committee. Please email questions to Aldona or Lisa at, lisa.tang@nus.edu.sg

    Monday, February 13, 2023 (9:00 to 10:30 am Eastern):

    Victoria Sevcenko (INSEAD), JR Keller (Cornell U), DK Kryscynski (Brigham Young U), and Ulya Tsolmon (WUSTL) will present some of their recent research involving Human Capital.

    Distinguished scholars Mathew Bidwell (U of Pennsylvania) and Russ Coff (U of Wisconsin) will summarize these presentations and discuss opportunities for future research.

    Wednesday, February 22, 2023 (12:00 to 13:30 Eastern):

    • STR Virtual Symposium: Knowledge and Innovation Research

      This symposium features research about knowledge and innovation strategies at the individual, platform, industry, and regional levels of analysis. The focus of the discussion will be on how this research interacts with central topics in strategic management. Although strategy research primarily seeks to understand firm heterogeneity, many scholars focus on other levels of analysis for shedding light on firm-level dynamics.

    Michaël Bikard (INSEAD), Tobias Kretschmer (LMU Munich), Mahka Moeen (U of North Carolina), and Myles Shaver (U of Minnesota) will reflect on what we know about innovation at the individual, platform, industry, and regional levels of analysis, how existing research sheds light on canonical strategic management questions, and what research gaps exist to better link to firm-level strategic management issues. 

    The session will be moderated by Elena Plaksenkova (Ohio State U).

    Our thanks to STR EC member Mahka Moeen (U of North Carolina) for organizing the session.

    To stay informed of these and future events, please visit the STR calendar on the STR homepage, and/or any of our STR social media accounts.
