The NITIM Graduate Summer School is an international PhD school that focuses on topics in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovation and technology management as well as information and communication technologies. This Summer School is organized once a year in cooperation with the ICE/IEEE ITMC Conference and thus takes place at changing locations – e.g. 2016 in Trondheim (Norway), 2017 in Madeira (Portugal), 2018 in Konstanz (Germany) & 2019 in Nice (France). In 2020, it will be held in Cardiff, UK.
The NITIM 2020 Summer School (June 11th – 12th, 2020) will be held online this year due to the existing travel restrictions and uncertainties. We invite PhD candidates to submit proposals for evaluation and we invite faculty members to join our on-line NITIM. The core of the Summer School will be virtual group sessions of 4 PhD candidates and 2 faculty members.
For those who have just started their PhD program, we look forward to receiving a research proposal. For those in their late stage of their Ph.D., you are encouraged to submit a relevant piece for your research (a paper, an overview, or a chapter of your PhD thesis).
The admission to the school will be based on the review of full proposal (or paper), which will form the basis of the discussion and feedback at the Virtual Summer School, is due by May 4th.
Notification of acceptance to the school will be sent by May 25th.
The NITIM Schools facilitate the development of doctoral research in the interdisciplinary field of Networks, Information, Technology and Innovation Management, bringing together PhD candidates and faculty members in a focused, in-depth, and constructive discussion of the candidates’ research work.
Participation in the Virtual Summer School will be free.
After completion of the Summer School and a short learning report to be submitted within 2 weeks after NITIM, PhD candidates can receive a certificate.
