GRONEN Workshop Series

With the Workshop Series, GRONEN seeks to promote scholarly events in between its biennial conference. The aim of the workshop series is to facilitate the organisation of a variety of small-scale scholarly workshops. The series is open for any workshop format provided it is thematically aligned with the mission of GRONEN in promoting high quality research exploring the relationship between organisations and the natural environment and its consequences on societal progress.


Eligible workshops must contribute to the main goals of GRONEN.

  1. To generate relevant research with the highest levels of research rigor.
  2. To encourage innovative thinking in order to develop transformative ways of protecting the Earth.
  3. To promote personal and friendly interactions between people analysing the relationships between organisations and the natural environment.
  4. To learn from geographical, methodological, and paradigmatic diversity.
  5. To develop impact through a network of engaged scholars.

The workshop series is open to all kinds of workshop formats including but not limited to method workshops, paper development workshops, data workshops, PhD or Post-Doc workshops, case writing workshops, and teaching workshops.


GRONEN offers the following services to workshop organisers who apply for the workshop series:

  • Seed funding
  • Launch of a special track in the GRONEN partner journal Organization & Environment for papers discussed at GRONEN workshops
  • Support in contacting potential guest speakers from within the GRONEN network
  • Advertisement of the workshop on the GRONEN website and also among the members of the network

The GRONEN workshop series will not provide full funding for any workshop. Papers submitted to a special track of Organization & Environment will undergo the regular review process of the journal.
