The theme for Digit’s 2021 Summer School reflects the way that digital transformations are changing the organisation, quality and location of work along Global Value chains.
The Summer School is open to Early Career Researchers (ECRs), who we define as individuals that are currently undertaking a PhD or working in a postdoctoral researcher capacity, and are within 5 years of submitting their PhD.
This year’s School will be held online on 14th, 15th & 16th September 2021
The school will have four parallel themes:
Alongside opportunities to present research and receive feedback in the parallel sessions, the Summer School will include:
- Plenary sessions including senior leaders from industry and academia.
- A ‘Getting Published’ session with a panel of editors from leading journals in the fields of Operations and Supply Chain Management, Global Value Chains, Innovation and Digital Work.
The summer school is open to Early Career Researchers (ECRs), who we define as individuals that are currently undertaking a PhD or working in a postdoctoral researcher capacity, and are within 5 years of submitting their PhD.
Applicants should submit a 1000 word abstract which clearly articulates the research topic, research problem, research question, research design and any preliminary findings.
The abstract should be submitted by 15 June 2021, as a pdf document, using the email address below.
