OBJECTIVES

The IFPSM Summer School is organised with the aim to provide an opportunity for intensive interaction of PhD students from all around the world with some of the leading professors of

  • Presentations by the students: presenting their research and receiving feedback.

The Summer School aims to:

  • Assist participants in their own PhD research;
  • Provide an overview of broader purchasing and supply research;
  • Provide a forum for talented young scholars for exchanging ideas and establishing a research network;
  • Create a joint working experience with international colleagues.
