The Technology & Innovation Management Division of Academy of Management is pleased to invite applications for the 2019 TIM Doctoral Research Development Workshop.

This workshop is designed as an idea, paper and dissertation development workshop for PhD students interested in technology, innovation, creativity, product development, and related topics. Applicants may be at any stage of the PhD program, and similarly, the ideas brought to the workshop can range from initial ideas of a project or dissertation to a fully-developed paper. The workshop will be comprised of a panel discussion on conducting quality research and intensive round-table discussions during which participants will receive feedback on their submitted proposals.

Continuing with the tradition of the division, the workshop is organized by prior year finalists of the TIM Dissertation Award. The organizers have assembled panelists who are not only leading scholars of technology and innovation, but also advisers to recent successful graduates.

Workshop facilitators include:
Annamaria Conti (University of Lausanne)
JP Eggers (NYU)
Caroline Flammer (Boston University)
Dietmar Harhoff (MPI for Innovation & Competition)
Aseem Kaul (University of Minnesota)
Atul Nerkar (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)
