What we do

We usually meet once a month (on Mondays). The agenda varies, but typical elements are:

→ Research presentations

  • Presentation and discussion of group members’ research at various stages (from the early stage to almost finished papers or ideas for major research projects).

→ Paper writing workshops

  • Paper writing workshops aim at collaborating to improve group member’s papers – either before conference presentations or prior to submission to journals.
  • One paper is subject to constructive feedback during each workshop. The paper is distributed among the other group members: one person provides feedback on the introduction; another on the theory section; a third on the methodology section, etc.

→ General discussion of open (and future) calls

  • Sharing of information regarding potential open calls.
  • Discussion of potential for collaboration on joint research proposals.

In AIROD, we are committed and dedicated to:

→ Excel in research

  • Aim to publish our work in leading international business and management journals.
  • Participate in leading international conferences.
  • Collaborate with leading scholars within their respective fields.

→ Support young researchers

  • Mentor PhD and junior faculty both regarding teaching and research.
  • Help researchers connect with relevant people in their own network (either nationally or internationally).
  • Where relevant, invite PhD students to participate in current research projects.

→ Provide research-based teaching

  • Wherever relevant, AIROD members will integrate their own research (or that of colleagues) as part of the curricula.
  • Create a general awareness in students of how research is conducted.

→ Ensure the practical relevance of our research projects

AIROD researchers strive to maintain close collaborations with external stakeholders, including private and public enterprises.   

These collaborations can take various forms:

  • Presentation of research results at company meetings, seminars, retreats, etc.
  • Data collection in enterprises.
  • Work on company-initiated projects – either through student projects or own research.
  • Use of company executives as visiting lecturers.
