Knowledge Exchange & Impact Activities

Since the beginning of my academic career, I have always engaged with innovative knowledge exchange activities within the international business field as well as Higher Education institutions where I have had the privilege to work. I view such activities not only as a way of disseminating knowledge in an impactful way but also engaging research with the wider society in a responsible manner.

 

Enjoy to have a look at some of the activities I have been involved in various capacities as a founder, leader, track chair and participant!

Founder & Co-Organiser

2020 - present 

As the Founder  and Co-Organiser of the Symposium I strategically develop and lead a number of knowledge exchange and engagement activities focused on enhancing the Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM) global network's vision in Higher Education institutions around the world by influencing and supporting their scholarly activities toward responsible and credible science.

 

Overall Objective:

The overall objective of the symposium is to advance a critical and ethical understanding of what responsible science is so that credible and trustworthy knowledge is created to address problems important to business and society.  

 

Specific Objectives:

In line with the above and upon the completion of the symposium, participants will have deeper understanding of the answers and nuances pertaining to the following: 

  • To advance and influence the awareness of the RRBM’s principles and initiatives centered on responsible research

  • To pinpoint the understanding of current debates and policies centered on responsible research

  • To enhance the significance of paradigms in qualitative research 

  • To identify knowledge of practical strategies for achieving responsible research impact 

  • To develop the recognition of the relationship between responsible research and impact

  • To increase the understanding of research transparency and integrity in scientific inquiry

  • To develop an understanding of what it means to be a responsible scientist in business and management disciplines

  • To influence a change in Higher Education Institutions and their ecosystems in relation to responsible research 

 

Participants:

The event is aimed at doctoral and junior scholars in the business and management fields, and it is hope that it will help them not only with planning but also undertaking responsible research to advance scientific knowledge as well as enhance professional standards in those fields.
