The European Network for Research in Organisational & Accounting Change (ENROAC) comprises academics, practitioners and managers who share an interest in organisational (including accounting) change. Membership has an extremely international flavour. ENROAC always welcomes new members. We charge no fees; we simply ‘manage’ things through an email distribution list via the ENROAC web page and facebook! Actual email contact is left to a minimum. If you are interested in joining ENROAC, please contact Professor John Burns, who will gladly put you on the email distribution list; he also welcomes requests to join the ENROAC facebook page.
Since its formation in 1999, ENROAC has enjoyed eight conferences, as follows: University of Manchester (UK, 1999), BI Norwegian School of Management (Norway, 2000), University of Siena (Italy, 2001), University of Groningen (the Netherlands, 2003), University of Antwerp (Belgium, 2005); EACP-EAP (Paris, 2007), Dundee (2009) and ISCTE, Lisbon (Portugal). All of these past events were kindly sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).
Our 9th international conference is already planned to take place in Jyväskylä (Finland), 5-7 June, 2013. There are several features that help to define ENROAC conferences, including:
• Practitioner’s Day (day 1) which comprises keynote speeches, on a specific theme, from a mixture of academic, professional and business speakers.
• The appointment of discussants during academic sessions, thus promoting excellent feedback to authors as well as nurturing general discussion and thought on the papers presented.
• An informal setting that promotes thought, argument and debate, but at the same time leaves room for networking and fun!
ENROAC Doctoral Summer Schools:
ENROAC has also hosted five doctoral summer schools to-date: 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012. These summer schools were all held at the Certosa di Pontignano in Siena, and were all generously sponsored by the University of Siena.
Assisting the development of some of tomorrow’s leading scholars is of paramount importance to ENROAC. We hope you’ll consider applying for a place at the next summer school in 2012 & /or will recommend it to your PhD students and early-career colleagues. There is a fee, but this is generouslysubsidised by the University of Siena.
