The IFPSM Summer School is organised with
the aim to provide an opportunity for intensive
interaction of PhD students from all around the
world with some of the leading professors of
the field. In order to achieve that the number of
participants is limited (usually around 15) and a
specific setting is chosen: joined housing with lots
of interaction possibilities.
The Summer School is a combination of:
» Lectures by the professors: providing an
overview of specific purchasing and supply
topics and the state of the art on that subject;
» Presentations by the students: presenting their
research and receiving feedback.
The Summer School aims to:
» Assist participants in their own PhD research;
» Provide an overview of broader purchasing and supply research;
» Provide a forum for talented young scholars for exchanging ideas and establishing a research network;
» Create a joint working experience with international colleagues.
Participation in the Summer School is most beneficial for students either finishing
their first year of research discussing their approach or maybe a first paper or
close to the end wanting to refine output. Candidates are:
» enrolled PhD, postgraduate students of an accredited institute of higher education;
» in the phase of writing a dissertation on purchasing or a closely related areas;
» fluent in English.
The professional program starts on June 26th 2017 and extends over the entire
week. The workload is equivalent to 5 ECTS. Scheduled speakers for this year are
the professors Larry Giunipero (Florida State University, USA), Chris Ellegaard
(University of Arhus, DK), Christoph Bode (University of Mannheim, D) and Mats
Bergman (Södertörn University Stockholm, S), next to the hosts: Jan Telgen
(University of Twente, NL) and Holger Schiele (University of Twente, NL).
