PhD Consortium

The 8th e-HRM doctoral consortium aims to provide a unique opportunity for PhD students to share, explore, and develop their research interests with peers and a panel of faculty members serving as mentors. Participants can expect an inclusive atmosphere and opportunities to interact informally with other participants. The doctoral consortium is open to PhD students at any stage and offers various learning and feedback sessions (please see the detailed programme below). We invite students who would appreciate feedback on their dissertation research to apply for this unique opportunity.

We welcome applications from PhD candidates worldwide. To apply, please submit a one- to three-page research proposal or an extended abstract of a research paper to the conference email by 16 May, 2022.

If you have any questions regarding the submission, programme, etc. please feel free to contact:

We look forward to receiving your submissions and seeing you at the 8th e-HRM PhD Consortium in Aarhus on 31 May, 2022.
