PhD Workshop


The CINet PhD workshop offers PhD students a unique possibility to present and discuss, receive feedback, and exchange comments and views on their research in an inspiring academic community of fellow PhD students and experienced researchers active in the CINet community.

The PhD workshop will be held on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 September 2024, before the 25th International CINet Conference in Hamburg, Germany, and ends at the afternoon of the last regular conference day (17 September 2024), while there are also meetings during the conference. 

The seminar is equivalent to a workload of 3 ECTS

Target group 

The CINet PhD workshop offers two classes of attendance, depending on the experience of the PhD student. Note that this classification relates to full time students; for part time students longer time periods might be more relevant.

  1. The first year's class is aimed at students who are in the first or early second year of their PhD research. These participants present and discuss their research design.
  2. Students who took part in the first class will be invited to join the second class, the following year. These participants are typically in the second or early third year of their studies. The presentations by, and discussion with, these students focus on results and (preliminary) conclusions (contribution to the theory and/or practice of continuous innovation).

Work mode: presentation, discussion and reflection

  • First year's participants to the CINet PhD workshop must provide a written project description as part of their application for the PhD workshop. Each student will be given a slot of one hour – 30 minutes for presentation, followed by 30 minutes discussion.
  • Second year's participants must submit a working paper covering their initial findings and conclusions. Also these students get one hour to present (30 minutes) and discuss (30 minutes) their research.

In addition to attending the Friday and Saturday sessions, the participants will receive a specific task for presentation and discussion in a session at the end of the CINet conference.

Application and fees

To apply for participation in the CINet PhD workshop, first year's applicants must submit a short project description (maximum 5 pages) with name, project title, affiliation, as well as a recommendation from their supervisor. This set of documents must be sent by e-mail to the conference secretariat (Jeannette Visser-Groeneveld) no later than 16 August 2024. Second years (meaning: you have participated before) can apply by just letting us know they would like to participate again.

The combined fee for the CINet PhD workshop and the CINet Conference is € 425 for CINet members and €525 for non-CINet members. The fee includes:

  • Participation in the CINet PhD workshop, the workshop lunch and dinner, coffee/tea and refreshments.
  • Participation in the 25th International CINet conference, including proceedings, lunches, refreshments and conference dinner.

Notification of acceptance and preparation

Applicants will be notified of the acceptance or rejection of their proposal by 20 August 2024. Successful applicants will then be asked to prepare and submit no later than 6 September 2024, a short paper describing their research design (first year's group), or a working paper covering the preliminary results and conclusions of their research (second year's group).
