​​SKEMA KTO Paper Development Workshop

The SKEMA KTO Paper Development Workshop is a yearly event held on SKEMA's Sophia Antipolis campus. The event, open to doctoral students and young researchers, has a friendly atmosphere and strives to inspire development.

The purpose of the workshop is to enhance the research skills of promising scholars within the fields of strategy, international business, organisation, innovation and/or entrepreneurship, and to increase their likelihood of publication. The number of participants is always limited to allow for interactive discussions and feedback between individuals within a friendly environment.

Participants attend seminars conducted by leading scholars, such as Gautam Ahuja (Cornell Tech), Gino Cattani (NYU Stern), Lars Frederiksen (Aarhus University), Tobias Kreschmer (LMU), and Daniel Tzabbar (Drexel University).

Faculty coordinating the event: Ludovic Dibiaggio, former head of KTO,

SKEMA KTO Crossing Bridges

The SKEMA KTO Crossing Bridges is a yearly event held on  SKEMA's Grand Paris Campus. The event is a workshop open to faculty and doctoral students, in which individuals can present their ongoing research at varying stages of development.  

The purpose of the workshop is to create a dialogue between disciplines by displaying research that “crosses bridges” between strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, and organisational behavior.

Past participants involved scholars such as Bernard Forgues (EM Lyon), Elena Dalpiaz (Imperial College), and Rodolphe Durand (HEC Paris). 

Faculty coordinating the event: Saverio Favaron, 

SKEMA KTO Seminar Series

The SKEMA KTO Seminar Series is a set of external seminars held at the Grand Paris and Sophia Antipolis Campus at SKEMA Business School. The seminars are a fundamental part of life for the research centre. We invite faculty from other institutions to present their ongoing research, meet our doctoral students, and exchange feedback about our research. 

Recent presenters include faculty from leading European institutions such as Bocconi University, Copenhagen Business School, ESMT, HEC Paris, IE University, London Business School, and University of Cambridge, as well as overseas, such as Northeastern University and University of Maryland.

The seminars are open to external colleagues both on campus and remotely. You can ask to be added to the mailing list by contacting the faculty in charge of the seminars.
