A PDW for Early Career Scholars on Innovation, Technology and R&D Management

Paper Development Workshop (PDW) for Early Career Scholars.

The paper development workshop (PDW) targets early-career researchers and PhD students working in the field of innovation studies.


The workshop aims to bring together researchers in the fields of innovation, technology and R&D management to stimulate a multi- disciplinary discussion on the economic, policy, management, organizational, environmental and other challenges posed by innovation, technology and R&D from a theoretical and managerial lens.

The purpose of the workshop is to enhance the research skills of PhD students and early-career researchers by providing them with guidance and advice on writing and positioning of papers, constructing a research portfolio and pivoting a paper following a journal rejection.

Participants will have the opportunity to receive feedback from a distinguished panel which includes:

  • Professor Shahzad Ansari (Cambridge Judge Business School)
  • Professor Charles Baden-Fuller (Bayes Business School -formerly Cass)
  • Professor Paola Criscuolo (Imperial College Business School)
