Call for Papers and Research Proposals
The Impact of Emerging Economies and their Multinational Enterprises on the World Economy
Workshop for Early-Career Researchers
26-28 February 2015
The University of Northampton Business School (UK), and Kazakh-British Technical University Business School (Kazakhstan), in Association with Brunel University (UK) and KIMEP University (Kazakhstan), are holding a workshop for early-career researchers under the British Council Newton-Al-Farabi ‘Research Links’ Programme, in association with the JSC Science Fund.
The three-day workshop will be held at Kazakh-British Technical University Business School (KBTU Business School), Almaty, Kazakhstan. The aim of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for early career researchers to meet and discuss papers both with peers and with more established scholars who will give constructive feedback on participants’ research proposals, which will enhance both their research network and their likelihood of their publication. The workshop will also be used to explore the possibility of establishing a global research network focusing on emerging economy multinational enterprises (EMNEs).
This is part of a major initiative to promote long-term research links between universities and research institutions in the UK and Kazakhstan, and is designed to connect early career researchers and established research faculty in both countries, and to undertake joint research, which can be published in international journals.
A contribution to travel and accommodation expenses is available to selected participants under this programme (£1,000 to participants based in the UK and £400 equivalent to those based in Kazakhstan).
