Workshop for ECRs: Call for funding applications

The Academy of Marketing is seeking expressions of interest for members to host workshops aimed at developing the skills, profile, and careers of doctoral students and early career researchers, in any teaching or research-related area. Workshops could focus on (but are not limited to): methodologies and fieldwork, pedagogy, creating academic networks, publishing, funding and impact, or preparing for the viva.

As a result of the generous support of the Marketing Trust in 2021, hosts can apply to the Academy for funding of up to £1,500 to support the organisation and running of the workshop. The requested funding may cover invited speakers’ fees and expenses (travel, accommodation, speaking fees), catering (refreshments and light meals for participants), and/or subsidising doctoral students ’ travel expenses.

Please note that workshops should take place during the Autumn term 2022 (September, October, November); dates will be discussed with successful applicants.
