 Project objective

Management science shows that individuals and organizations constantly face paradoxical challenges, built from contradictory yet related interests of pluralistic stakeholders that do not have straightforward resolutions. Researchers in the field of Paradox and Pluralism develop ground-breaking research with complex perspectives that accept conflict and contradiction as part of all organizing endeavours. This research overcomes limitations of traditional theories and methodologies and has gained prominence among academics and practitioners. Nova SBE has been developing Paradox and Pluralistic perspectives, but lacks funding and access to global networks that enable it to achieve higher standards of scientific excellence in the field. EUFORPP will leverage on the academic expertise of European institutions (CITY/UK, UNIGE/Switzerland, LUISS/Italy, and EUR/Netherlands) and a wider network of international experts, to create opportunities to develop Nova SBE’s research and innovation (R&I) capacity in this field across Europe and the world. EUFORPP will build excellence in Nova SBE by setting up a long-standing Forum on Paradox and Pluralism, materialized in different mechanisms: an International Conference to be held annually, a Community of Practice supported by a Web Platform to connect worldwide experts, and Impact Labs to explore specific sub-fields and connect the Forum to society. Nova SBE will be the primary beneficiary of the project, but the networking will benefit all Partners and the state of R&I in Europe, as these mechanisms will establish fruitful links with top researchers at global level. The Twinning will also include specific activities aimed at Nova SBE’s development, such as staff exchanges, academic symposia, training of early stage researchers, and paper development workshops that will enable a significant transformation in Nova SBE’s research capacity.
