An opportunity to participate in a EECC has been a fantastic opportunity to spend a few days on interesting and heated discussions about research and teaching excellence. Importantly, no other event has allowed for so much attention being paid to my work. I got useful feedback from EECC participants and from mentors who are experts in their field. It was also a great opportunity to network and share experiences with peers who – similarly to me – are early in their stages of academic careers. Intellectually stimulating environment coupled with beautiful surroundings of Rome has made the 2018 EECC and unforgettable experience! Dr Joanna Szulc, Lecturer in HRM, York St John’s University Business School, UK Participant of EECC 2018 in Rome
The EURAM ECC 2020 was a terrific opportunity to network with peer researchers and engage with senior academic mentors - thank you for the opportunity. Many senior academics and EURAM executive committee members showed their commitment by their engagement and attendance at this event. This colloquium was very well organised in the lovely University of Huddersfield. Huge thanks to Joanna and the team for all your hard work - I'll be back!! Maeve O'Sullivan, EECC 2020 participant
The chance to participate in the EECC was priceless. I benefited from the mentoring sessions as I got customised comments on my paper. Presentations were also eye-opening and hearing about experiences of other scholars in the academic field was incredible. I established contacts with peers and hopefully we can collaborate and publish papers together. Moreblessing Ngwenya, EECC 2020 participant
The 11th edition of the EURAM early career colloquium was an extraordinary experience for me. The organisation, starting with the social event with my first ever experience with laser tag and a wonderful dinner with the opportunity to meet fellow researchers, was excellent. Most important, I had the opportunity to get in-depth feedback for my work from expert mentors as well as other EECC participants. Additionally, important discussions about research careers as well as the contributions of our work gave me further insights for developing my ongoing and future research. All in all, I very much enjoyed meeting distinguished scholars in the fields of management and international business as well as new early career researchers who work on exciting and relevant topics for business and society at large!
