We are honoured to have been invited by the EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development) and EURAM (European Academy of Management) to present our ideas on reinventing management research to a group of esteemed Research Leaders from various Universities worldwide.
A partnership between EFMD and EURAM (, after three successful editions and over 50 participants, the Research Leadership Programme (RLP) will run again in 2014/2015.
It is important for business schools to contribute to the creation of knowledge. However, each institution is faced with challenges to develop an appropriate research strategy and to implement that strategy. In order to strengthen their members’ capability to develop high quality research, EFMD and EURAM have joined efforts to offer this professional development programme.
The RLP is aimed at recently appointed directors of research. Over a 3 modular based programme, it allows participants to gain a unique overview of research strategy and includes research identity, differing contexts and environmental influences. The operational performance part of the programme looks amongst others into faculty development, performance measurement, appropriate research structures, and much more. The RLP enables a group of up to 20 international directors of research to discuss in a friendly, open environment the many issues to which they are mutually confronted and is a great networking opportunity to collaborate internationally.
Aims of the programme
The aim of the programme is to introduce new and existing Directors of Research in Management and Business Schools to best practice in this professional position. Participants will get direct advice from experienced Directors, access to the gatekeepers of research funding institutions and the back up from a network of programme Alumni across the Continent. The programme is supported by two of Europe's most prestigious institutions in the field.
