Education is a very precious good and investing in the future is one of the best investments of all.
The 42nd conference of the European International Business Academy, also called EIBA conference, is one of the most important conferences concerning international business. For more than 40 years, these annual conferences have been driven by students and young academics, contributing greatly to their careers and perspectives by providing a stage for their ideas. This year, the EIBA conference is held from December 2 to 4, 2016 in the beautiful capital of Austria – Vienna. To be more precise: it takes place on the campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
Organizing such a big event is, well, a bit of a challenge – more than 500 participants are expected and various sessions are being held – among them also the Doctoral Workshops, for which this crowdfunding campaign was created. These workshops provide support for PhD students who would like to discuss their research proposals with an experienced faculty. Therefore, two events are offered at the EIBA conference 2016: the John H. Dunning Doctoral Tutorial and the Doctoral Symposium. The former aims at assisting PhD students in building up an international network as well as allowing discussion about potential research plans, and works-in-progress with both the international faculty and fellow students. The latter pursues the same objective. However, also students whose papers have not been selected or which have not been ready yet for the Doctoral Tutorial are encouraged to submit their work. Consequently, these young researchers are provided with a chance to present their ideas, aided in gaining further perspectives and offered new future opportunities.
The money raised with this campaign will exclusively be used to help finance these Doctoral Workshops. By donating, you therefore cover the costs that are related to events that promote and encourage young students and academics. You directly support them in improving their skills, advancing their careers, and you furthermore ensure the spreading of knowledge to a further generation!
This is what your money will be used for exactly:
- Room rent – € 240.00
- Poster session – € 300.00 (A poster session is the presentation of 3 to 4 papers with a subsequent discussion, so basically the preliminary stage for a submission to an academic journal)
- Catering – € 160.00
- GoGetFunding fees – € 50.00
Contribute to this campaign and provide scientific guidance to PhD students by enabling them to promote their research and present their findings to experts in the field of international business! We depend upon your support!
Thank you very much for all your backing – it is greatly appreciated!
