Leveraging the Power of European Research Networks
The European Academy of Management is proud to announce the tenth edition of the EURAM Early Career Colloquium (EECC), to be held in
Nuremberg, Germany, February 27th – March 1st 2019.
EECC provides a platform for academics in the field of business and management during the early stages of their careers to develop their research ideas, engage in a strong network of international scholars, and seek inspiration and advice from leading members of the European Academy of Management. During the 2½ days of the colloquium, the attendees will have ample opportunity to
- present their work and discuss it with peers and experienced scholars
- profit from the mentorship of some of EURAM’s best researchers
- discuss issues associated with the broader environment of management academia
- exchange ideas on how to best manage their scientific career
- build international relations and explore possibilities for future collaboration
All 2019 EECC attendees will be invited to participate – at a preferential EECC rate – in the EURAM annual conference which will be held in Lisbon, June 26-28, 2019, and present their revised work in a special developmental session.
EECC 2019 will be hosted by Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), recently ranked as the most innovative university in Germany. It is situated in one of the leading industrial regions of Europe. Representatives of various internationally active companies from the Nuremberg area will be available at the conference for a special session.
Deadline for application is December 15th, 2018.

Information about FAU:
Founded in 1743, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg is one of the largest universities in Germany, with almost 40,000 students, 244 degree programmes, 4,000 academic staff (including over 580 professors), 171 million euros (2013) third-party funding, and 500 partnerships with universities all over the world. Teaching at the University is closely linked to research and focuses on training students in both theory and practice to enable them to think critically and work independently. The research itself also strikes the perfect balance between a theoretical approach and practical application. In recent rankings, FAU is listed as the most innovative university in Germany. The chair of innovation and value creation at the Institute of Information Systems at FAU plays a key role in the interdisciplinary activities of the university. Its staff has a very diverse background in economics, social sciences, philosophy, computer science and engineering. This enables the chair to work together with various other institutes of FAU in many different projects. The research focus of the chair is set on open innovation and service innovation,
Information about Nuremberg:
Nuremberg is the second largest city in Bavaria and home to many high-tech companies and research institutes. With its large city wall and castle, it is also a major tourist attraction. Since its foundation in the 11th century, Nuremberg has played an important role in the development of science, arts and engineering. Many museums and historic sites give insight into its diverse and colourful past with very bright and very dark episodes, from the creation of the first pocket watches in the Renaissance era over the Nazi rallies and the Nuremberg Trials of the 20th century up to its re-emergence as an hub for digital innovation. Nuremberg is easy to reach by train, car and airplane and offers accommodation to affordable prices, making it a perfect location for a scientific conference
Travelling to/from Nuremberg:
Nuremberg has its own airport with direct flights to all major European hubs except Heathrow. The airport is connected by subway to the city centre. If you travel via Frankfurt or Munich, you can also use the train to get to Nuremberg. However, it will probably cost you much more, except when you buy train and airplane tickets together.
There are direct trains going from Nuremberg to Munich and Berlin at least every hour during daytime. Travelling from Berlin, you will need almost five hours. (Some train tickets allow you to make stops in between. Use this to have a look at Leipzig, Halle or Bamberg on the way.) Nuremberg and Munich are much closer together; you will need less than two hours for the trip from one to the other. The same is true if you travel from Frankfurt International Airport or downtown Frankfurt, but the trains are less frequent. Be sure to book your ticket in advance, it can be considerably cheaper.
Traveling by bus may be an alternative, especially for a tight student budget. Germany has just started to create regular inter-city bus links a few years ago and prices are still comparably low. You may need some time to find a suitable connection on the internet, but it’s worth the effort.
Going by car is also an option, especially if you want to find out how it feels to go really fast on the German Autobahn and to be overtaken by someone else going even faster. In any case, you will be slower that the train or the airplane. You should also keep in mind that car rental and fuel costs are quite considerable. If you want to see the countryside (which is worth it), a car will, of course, be the most convenient solution.
As Nuremberg is a major destination for tourism and business travel, there are many hotels available all over the city. Early booking is advised, as the prices can rise significantly for last-minute travel. If you arrive by car, parking might be a little problem, but you can always use one of the public garages.
