    1st Organizing Creativity – Transalpine Paper Development Workshop<o:p></o:p>


    12-13 May 2023
    @ JKU - Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria<o:p></o:p>


    The 1st Organizing Creativity Paper Development Workshop is an opportunity for academics to develop their ongoing work, empirical or conceptual, related to creativity. The workshop will be developmental with each paper having as a discussant one or more senior scholars with a track record of multiple publications in creativity in top management journals. Authors will also receive feedback from peers with similar research interests.<o:p></o:p>

    It should be of special interest to colleagues who recently graduated with a Ph.D. and doctoral students with quite well-developed manuscripts; scholars more advanced in their careers are also welcome to participate.<o:p></o:p>

    This workshop aims to become an annual opportunity for early scholars in Business/Management to establish themselves in the vibrant international community of scholars interested in the study of creativity. It aims to initiate and support a budding community of Europe-based researchers with a shared interest in creativity and to offer them an environment to come together, know each other as well as established scholars, benefit from close interpersonal relations, and initiate new exciting collaborations. <o:p></o:p>

    We see this workshop as an opportunity to develop a standing working group on creativity, especially among Central and Southern European Universities.<o:p></o:p>
