GRONEN Research Conference

The biennial GRONEN Research Conference has built a reputation as an ideal environment to develop rigorous and relevant research on organizations and sustainability. GRONEN conferences offer a unique opportunity to develop personal networks with scholars researching on the sustainability, strategy, innovation, and management. The conference brings together established scholars, junior faculty and PhD students worldwide. GRONEN research conferences are small events to encourage personal exchange and network building. They provide an intimate environment to promote academic interactions in a friendly and constructive environment. Through their unique combination of research rigor, relevance, flexibility, collegiality, and fun, GRONEN conferences provide am encouraging and supportive platform for critical and innovative research.

The next GRONEN Research Conference will be held in Almeria, Spain on 13-15 June 2018.

The objectives of GRONEN conferences are to generate relevant and strong research and to encourage innovative thinking to develop transformative paths towards a sustainable future for business, society and the environment. We therefore systematically promote personal interactions between international scholars to develop impact through a network of engaged scholars.

GRONEN conferences bring together conventional scholarly sessions and innovative session formats.

  • Full paper sessions provide a platform for presenting and discussing fully developed academic papers.
  • Paper development sessions provide a platform for constructive debate of work in progress. Submissions to these sessions are not fully developed but work in progress.
  • GRONEN conferences include innovative session formats with the aim to spark innovative thinking and new ideas.

We are dedicated to organizing small conferences (usually with one session track) that guarantee strong interactions and a friendly community. The GRONEN conferences usually attract some of the best-known scholars in the field of organizations and the natural environment.
