Upcoming Colloquia

November 30 - December 2, 2016

Kick-Off meeting of the EU Horizon2020 project “Industry in the Circular Economy” - Route2π


Together with 13 partners from 9 member states we will kick-off a three year EU project on the Circular Economy at ESCP Europe´s Berlin Campus. The project known as Route to Pi or R2π examines how the concept of a Circular Economy (CE) can be translated into Circular Economy Business Models (CEBM). The role of ESCP Europe, participating with several renowned professors from our Berlin and Paris Campus under the lead of Prof. Dr. Sylvie Geisendorf, will be the transfer of Circular Business Models into academia.

The innovation of R2π lies in having a strong business-focus, examining stimuli beyond environmental goals (including ICT and eco-innovation), and in examining the role of policy innovation (including the use of policy nudges and of "policy packages"). R2π unfolds in diverse contexts with a strong emphasis on involvement and exchange. The research design employs mixed-methods, with a strong emphasis on case studies but also including desktop research, feasibility assessments (including surveys where applicable), policy formulation & stakeholder involvement.

Franco-German research seminar for (post)doctoral research associates


In November 2016, Professor Ulrike Mayrhofer (IAE Lyon) and Professor Stefan Schmid (ESCP Europe, Berlin Campus) organised a Franco-German research seminar. This two-day seminar for doctoral and postdoctoral research associates was sponsored by the Franco-German University (FGU) and enabled its participants to exchange their ideas and thoughts on research in the area of International Management. 

After presenting the status of their projects, the research associates took the opportunity to discuss their findings with the audience. The constructive feedback gained from the discussions was intended to help the junior researchers further develop their projects. Professor Christoph Barmeyer (University of Passau) enriched the two-day event with valuable insights from a German-French research project and an interactive workshop on intercultural differences in French-German managerial interaction. The seminar ended with a panel session on “How to publish in Germany, France and at the international level” that was chaired by Professor Ulrike Mayrhofer, Junior Professor Tobias Dauth and Professor Stefan Schmid. The three panel chairs highlighted the major differences and similarities between the research landscapes in France and Germany in the area of International Management and provided valuable suggestions on how to publish research articles in international academic journals.

Workshop on Agent-based Modeling in Ecological Economics


 

On May 20th 2016 over 20 renowned economists like Prof. Dr. UIrich Witt (Honorary Professor at the University of Jena) and Frank Beckenbach (University of Kassel) gathered for an AGENT-BASED MODELING (ABM) workshop at ESCP Europe Berlin Campus. The workshop on “Agent-based Modeling in Ecological Economics – A useful tool or just a fancy gadget?” was organized and funded by the Sustainability Research Center SustBusy.

The first ABM workshop in of its kind investigated the potential of ABM for Ecological Economics. Agent-based models have acquired a place among other modeling tools in economics, but not an uncontested one. Participants had an active discussion on the usefulness of ABM, in which we also highlighted critical views. The main critique being the subjective arbitrariness of the behavioral assumptions, it was pointed out that the community should continue to strengthen the fact that differing plausible assumptions may still offer more insights into real behavior than the standard economic assumption of perfect rationality. While, admittedly, being clear-cut and unequivocal, the latter also comes with the disadvantage of being definitely wrong. ABM modelers should continue to point out the relevance of more adequate models, and, at the same time, strive for better theoretical foundations of agents´ behavior.
