Chapter 16: The value of business events for engaged scholarship

Elsa Breit


Chapter 16 shows how doctoral students and established scientists can benefit from attending business events, at which stages this can be helpful in the research process, and why it can help close the rigour–relevance gap and encourage engaged scholarship. The author presents her own experiences, the diversity of possible approaches and the benefits of business events at the beginning of her research and questions established scientists about their role at and value of business events. Starting a new research project, business events can help gain an overview of developments in the field, anchor the research problem and question it in the real world and establish contacts for possible empiricism. According to established scientists the exchange between science and practice at events is valuable for both sides and although it is difficult to communicate between the systems, it gives us the chance to create something new and common.
