En attendant… wonders about how delicate and important is the relationship between “being a scientific community” and participating in the life of “scientific societies”.

En attendant… is a cycle of international seminars.

En attendant… aims to prepare the academic community and its members for competition at the international conferences of leading international scientific societies: EURAM, EGOS, EIASM, SCOS, etc.

En attendant… is based on the awareness of how complex the relationship between means and ends always is: in the history of philosophy as well as in the theories and management practices. When “being a scientific community”, gives weight to the importance of the processes that engenders research products.

En attendant believes that the internationalization of research is both an object and a method and pays great attention to the processes (how to do), as well as on the results and performances (what to do/get). When participating to the life of “scientific societies” means presenting significant research products that represent effectively the result of an underlying research endeavor.

En attendant… provides the opportunity for participants to publish their work in progress in PIJ.

En attendant... is  designed  and  developed by Luigi Maria Sicca within puntOorg International Research Network.

2018. En attendant 15 SETT OK 001The en attendant project is going on since 2015 so far and the next meeting will be held at the University of Bologna, November 9th.

Our workflow is always the same: Each presenting participant briefly outlines its key ideas and "researches in progress". Some feedbacks will be given back by the attending Academic community at the end of the presentation.

En attendant... sessions, We as puntOorg do not use to "defend our paper". We strongly believe that a researcher should know how to listen critically, and after having listened to others, going on "work on it", en attendant… for the international academic competitions.

Some of the paper presented in Rome will be firstly discussed with a community of peers, and then will be presented to the most important international conferences in management.

Bologna 09 dicembre per EURAM 2017 001We continue the project en attendant EURAM, started in 2015 (whose previous steps are shown below), with a new step.

The next meeting of en attendant EURAM is planned at the University of Bologna on December 9.

Some of the papers that will be presented at EURAM conference 2017 in Glasgow on 21, 22, 23 and 24 June, within the Standing Track entitled Power, Resistance and Critical Management, will be discussed in depth within the community of peers, during the next meeting in Bologna.

Bologna 11 dicembre per EURAM 2016 copia 001We, as puntOorg, do believe that participating in the life of an international scientific society such as EURAM, means not only presenting and discussing our papers at the conference which takes place every year but also engaging with its research community in a deeper and more meaningful way. The conference presentations is, for us,  only the last act of a longer academic process. And since working on processes (how to do) rather than only on outputs is the heart of puntOorg project, we have done (and are doing) something more. After the first “en attendant Euram”  meeting (see the post below), we organised a second meeting on Friday, December 11, 2015, from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm, at the Department of Management DISA University of Bologna. Once again, colleagues from various institutions participated in an open forum to discuss each other’s projects, ideas and research.

 

Napoli 16 ottobre per EURAM 2016 001

Given the numerous submissions received at the Euram Conference 2015 in Warsaw,  the track was made standing, which gave us an opportunity to develop our project and extend our research collaborations. After the success of the CFP (see the relevant track information in the post published below, in the "Conferences" section of our website), we worked to refine our sensmaking and nuances regarding the themes of our topics,  so we started a cycle of seminars to share content and potential developments for our EURAM track en ettendent the next Euram conference, “Cooperating and Managing for Sustainable Development” to be held in Paris, 2-5 June 2016.

As such, by organising interdisciplinary international seminars to discuss ideas and research development amongst colleagues form different institutions, we formalized a working method already experienced on an informal basis during 2014 and 2015. On Friday, October 16, 2015, from 10 am to 5 pm we had the first “en attendant Euram “meeting  to prepare for the conference Euram Paris, 2016.
