The 5th Advances in Management and Innovation (AMI) Conference will be held virtually on Thursday 20th & Friday 21st May 2021.
The call for papers is now available on Figshare
The annual AMI Conference was initiated to help realise the School Research Strategy objective of 'support and develop staff capability and capacity towards research'; and the University strategy of achieving 'growth in the volume, quality, value and impact of research and innovation'.
The conference seeks to promote research in management and innovation-related disciplines and aims to showcase the research of academics, practitioners, and research students. The event thus engages with the early career and research student communities with a dual focus of; building a research culture via the opportunity to present work often for first time in supportive environment, whilst providing an outward-facing showcase for CSM research.
The first AMI conference took place in 2017 and has grown both nationally and internationally; 20 papers with 60 delegates in 2017, 24 papers with 80 delegates in 2018, 30 papers and 100 delegates in 2019. The 2019 conference included several papers delivered by members of the University's collaborative partner network with papers from India, Greece and the Middle East.
The 2020 conference took place online, due to COVID-19 and full conference proceedings and conference presentations are available from Figshare.
The annual AMI research conference is aligned to the Advances in Management and Innovation (AMI) Working Paper Series Journal (ISSN: 2050-4179), a developmental and supportive peer reviewed publication outlet.
