An Ecosystem and a Sharing Philosophy
Chapter 4: What about EURAM?
EURAM (The European Academy of Management) aims at being a European-based community of engaged management scholars. It is an open, inclusive and cross-cultural community. EURAM represents diversity and context-specific scholarship and research. Is there a need for European-based research? EURAM’s context-specific characteristics represent a challenge and alternative to the global contributions of the AOM. EURAM has its distinct contributions and character, but I have also seen its contribution as a tugboat that supports the big tankship of the AOM in management research. Can a European-based academy contribute as an alternative or supplement to AOM? EURAM’s presidential activities were aimed at solving challenges facing many academies of management. In this chapter, I mainly lean on two publications I wrote as EURAM president from 2010 to 2012. The first publication was at the beginning of my presidential period, while the second was reflections presented in my presidential outgoing speech.
