Research Thursdays

On Thursday afternoons, each department regularly invites renowned researchers working in France or abroad to present recent projects at Audencia. The departments also organise internal research seminars, which allow faculty members and PhD students from Rn’B Lab to present and improve their work through discussion with their colleagues.

To strengthen the skills of laboratory members, methodology workshops are held regularly:

  • Using research software (e.g., NVivo)
  • Development and implementation of quantitative and qualitative methodologies (e.g., PLS)
  • Promoting research on social networks

Rn’B Lab members actively participate in workshops to strengthen their skills in scientific writing and assessment of academic articles in the English language. Researchers also receive mentoring in a Higher Degree Research (HDR) approach to management science.
