Our Research Development Program (RDP) offers IFERA members the opportunity to engage in a developmental journey, promoting a portfolio of integrated and synergic initiatives which respond effectively to the diversity of needs expressed by members at different stages of career and professional development.
With this intent, the Research Development Program is articulated in three specific tracks: Webinars, Doctoral Consortium and Summer School.
The 2024 Conference will feature a Doctoral Consortium. To participate please check out the individual initiatives below.
The Summer School is not necessarily related to the conference, although participation to both is highly recommended.
Webinars: Topic specific online seminars with expert scholars
Reading Club: A recurring event providing a shared platform for the intellectual exchange of impactful research
Summer School: A doctoral program on the selection and application of qualitative and quantitative methods in the context of family business research.
Doctoral Consortium: An in-conference once-a-year event featuring developmental workshops, inspiring talks, networking, and mentoring. Special focus on mid-advanced stage PhD students.
IFERA Annual Conference: The ultimate sharing platform for family business research, featuring paper presentations, keynotes, workshops, and panels.
