Sustainable and responsible business practices are receiving increased academic and practitioner attention, particularly in the area of Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management. This PhD Development Day aims to bring together doctoral candidates examining issues related to sustainability and operations/logistics/supply chains to develop a cross-disciplinary discussion on key themes, appropriate methodological choices and the wider implications of research in this area.  

Dr Rosanna Cole, Deputy Director of the Centre for Sustainable Enterprise Management at the University of Surrey, will act as keynote speaker. Rosie has recently completed her PhD and will share hints and tips for PhD completion and life beyond the PhD.  

Prior to the event, registrants will be asked to submit a working paper and to prepare a five minute ‘elevator pitch’ regarding their research. On the day, attendees will work in pairs to discuss their working papers and to give and receive constructive feedback. All participants will present their work and also act as a discussant as part of facilitated small group sessions.  

The PhD Development Day is suitable for PhD candidates at any stage of their research. Experienced academics will facilitate the day and there will be ample opportunities for discussion around research topics and PhD research more broadly.

If you are interested in attending the Development Day, please register and submit a working paper (maximum 2000 words) to before Friday 31 March 2017.

A bursary of up to £30 towards travel costs to the workshop is available for the first ten people to register.
