Scientific events

The academic reputation and attractiveness of the Métis Laboratory are based on strong links woven with scientific partners. Research Conferences, Days and Colloquia are thus organised or co-organised on a regular basis by the Laboratory’s researchers.  

These scientific events have an international objective and gather researchers and practitioners around major current economic issues such as Family Entrepreneurship, Project Management or Cross-cultural Management. 

Colloquia and conferences organised or co-organised by the school

International conferences in partnership with UMass Boston College of Management

Integrating its research work into an international dynamic is one of the objectives of EM Normandie. To this end, a pedagogical and research-based partnership has been established between the School and UMass Boston College of Management (UMBCM).

This partnership, based on the mobility of students and teachers from both structures, is divided into two main areas:

  • Implementation of exchanges allowing students of the school to spend a semester in Boston and American students to study intercultural management on the Caen campus.

  • Organisation of annual international conferences between the two schools

The first international conference "Corporate Social Responsibility across the Atlantic" was held in Boston from 22 to 24 May 2019, with research professors from EM Normandy and Umass. 

Journées Georges Doriot

The creation of the Journées Georges Doriot in 2006 has allowed Entrepreneurship Research teams from EM Normandie, HEC Paris and ESG UQAM (Montréal, Canada) to come together.

These ‘days’, organised every other year, are an opportunity to put into practice three of the major principles of research: practical intelligence, cross-disciplinary orientation and openness to professionals. The scientific community and the professional world thus exchange through talks, debates and workshops dedicated to the topic of the year’s edition. 

The 2018 edition of the Georges Doriot Days took place in Montréal on 15, 16 and 17 May 2018. Topic: ‘Entrepreneurship and Sharing:  what is the potential for social transformation?’

The 8th edition of the days wil take place on 27 and 28 May 2021 in a 100% digital format.
