Special sessions 

Research Escalator Session

An opportunity for early- and mid-career researchers with a work-in-progress paper or research idea to receive peer feedback and support.

The work-in-progress should be submitted as an extended abstract by April 28, following the guidelines in the specific call for papers. This session is organised by EUNES, EUPRERA European Network of Emerging Scholars.

Paper Development Workshop

An engaged environment to discuss and develop research papers, structured as a workshop with a highly interactive format, focused on developing papers towards publication in top academic journals.

All scholars can apply. Priority is given to full-paper submissions from main authors who are currently aiming for promotion to tenured faculty positions (esp. mid-career researchers). Apply to the PDFW when submitting your paper for the congress. This session is organised by EUNES, EUPRERA European Network of Emerging Scholars.

Education Café

A 90 min workshop as a way to explore issues shared by EUPRERA members and congress participants in their teaching activity. This is an adaption of the World Café, a methodology for hosting group dialogue that puts an emphasis on the power of simple conversation.

The participants do not need to prepare any material, only to be open to experience and knowledge exchange with other international colleagues through constructive conversations. This session is organised by the EUPRERA Education Network.
