May 12-13 of next year, the Johannes Kepler University in Linz will host the 1st Transalpine Paper Development Workshop on “Organizing Creativity”. From the Call for Applications:

The First Creativity Paper Development Workshop is an opportunity for academics to develop their ongoing work, empirical or conceptual, related to creativity, broadly defined. The workshop will be developmental with each paper having as a discussant a senior scholar with a track record of multiple publications in creativity. Authors will also receive feedback from peers with similar research interests. It should be of special interest to colleagues who recently graduated with a Ph.D., and doctoral students with quite well-developed manuscripts; scholars more advanced in their careers are also welcome to attend. This workshop aims to become an annual opportunity for early scholars in Business/Management to establish themselves in the vibrant international community of scholars interested in the study of creativity. It aims to initiate and support a budding community of Europe-based researchers with a shared interest in creativity and to offer them an environment to come together, know each other as well as established scholars, benefit from close interpersonal relations, and initiate new exciting collaborations. We see this workshop as an opportunity to develop a standing working group on creativity, especially among Central and Southern European Universities.

Deadline for submitting applications based on abstracts of around 500 is 11.59 pm, January 25th, 2023. Email for submission:

6th Annual ConJunction Day

Our master’s program Organization Studies Students and Alumni Day will take place on the 18th of November 2022. After a Covid interruption last year and the online event in 2020, we are very excited to meet in person again! The theme of ConJunction this year is “Organizing (for) Sustainability.”

Since we last met, the master’s program has grown significantly! So we expect a good number of current students and alumni to turnout. If you plan to attend, please register via this link.

The main event starts at 15:00 and will take place at the Kaiser-Leopold-Saal, Faculty of Theology, Karl-Rahner-Platz 3, 6020 Innsbruck. Map via this link.

We are excited about the research talk by Assoc. Prof. Birthe Soppe. We also have Julia Wolf (OS Alumna, GemNova), Alessia Zoppelleto (University of Trento), and Bernhard Staudt (BMW) as panel guests for a discussion on Organizing (for) Sustainability, moderated by Prof. Leonhard Dobusch.

As further inspirations, there will be three brief master’s theses presentations related to the vital theme of sustainability by Lavigne Chore, Alwin Baumhöver & Niklas Hugot, and Milena Eberharter. This is followed by a graduation speech and the welcoming of the newly admitted freshwo:man. The social event will follow, starting at around 19:00, at Sixty Twenty.

The detailed program is below.
