XXVIII AiIG PhD Summer School
Research in Management Engineering: Improving Relevance and Rigor
Organized by Università degli Studi di Padova (online)
Since 2017 the AiIG Summer Schools have followed a three-year cycle, by alternating three topics: Research, Teaching, and Impact. Thus, the 2020 Summer School will be the first of the 2nd cycle, and will focus on Research.
It will be held online from February 17th to February 19th, 2021.
The general aim of the School is to raise awareness among PhD students and young researchers about the research process in order to understand how to plan and run a rigorous and relevant research internally consistent in terms of maturity of knowledge, research questions, research approach, and contribution.
More specifically, through the different types of activities planned (lectures, labs, best practice and experience sessions, roundtable), the School intends to:
– develop an understanding of what a research process implies and requires (what are the steps to be undertaken, the decisions in each step and their implications, how to build a rigorous research process, meet internal consistency between steps and decisions, design a research that may be relevant, etc.);
– raise students’ awareness of what is important when (self-)assessing their own or others’ research and, thus, of the criteria an Editor/Reviewer generally applies to assess the relevance and rigor of a research;
– raise awareness of the importance of being part of the AiIG community and strengthen personal and research connections between PhD students.
To this aim, the Summer School will include different activities: interactive sessions with invited speakers/lecturers, labs and teamworks with the following mentors belonging to the AiIG community:
