What is the Doctoral Colloquium

The EURAM Doctoral Colloquium (DC) is one of the most established and high-profile events in the academic community, aligned with our key values for engaged and inclusive scholarship. This two-day programme is one of our flagship events preceding the EURAM annual conference every year. If you are a second or higher year doctoral student, it is an opportunity to become part of a highly motivated international community of like-minded young researchers and to meet the leading scholars in your field. You will also be able to join the conference at a reduced rate for PhD students. Finally, the DC provides opportunities to network during social events as well, which is crucial for academic career development.



EURAM DC provides doctoral students with the opportunity to present their work to their peers and mentors, who are experienced supervisors and leading scholars in their field, and engage with one another in a setting that is relatively informal but that allows for meaningful and constructive scholarly exchanges. The aim of the Doctoral Colloquium is to contribute towards a transformative journey for doctoral students, who will not only receive feedback on their doctoral research but also learn about fundamentals of a doctoral journey including research methods related matters, publishing from a PhD and reviewing for journals, and obtain advice on academic career paths.  DC is an entry point into joining a wider community of peers and engaged management scholars.

EURAM is a forward thinking, innovative and most of all supportive group of scholars... being part of the EURAM DC has helped me think about my research in new ways and it has really boosted my confidence.

I found the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium a great forum to get feedback on my work, learn from others, and make new friends. The feedback that I received both from my mentor and from the other students in my group was relevant and helpful, and has given me some great ideas on ways to move forward with finishing my dissertation and with publishing my work. The organization of the event was exceptional, the sessions very interesting, and the speakers engaging. I've already recommended the event to people in several schools with whom I have contact, and hopefully will be successful in encouraging more students from a diversity of programs to attend.

To participate on the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium is a great opportunity to meet other researchers on the same stage that we are and share expectations, knowledge and experiences. On the other hand, the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium gives us the opportunity to hear several fabulous academics about their perspective of how to develop a good and sustainable research while we get feedback on our work. The EURAM Doctoral Colloquium really represents a good opportunity to think on our approach and to define our research.
