P32 SIG New Researchers Panel

Corresponding Chair

Maria Cucciniello, Bocconi University Italy



This panel provides an opportunity for new researchers in public management (doctoral students and researchers in the first three years of their academic careers) to discuss their research and work in progress with a distinguished international faculty in a format that allows for targeted discussion around the publication of the work presented.

We award the Osborne Best Paper Prize to the paper which comes closest to publishing standard. Selected panelists are entitled to join the conference activities of the IRSPM New Researchers Chapter and be part of a family of high flyers enjoying the full support of the society in their career development. Subject-specific, publishing as well as career advice will be offered by selected IRSPM board members and established academic members.

We invite proposals of stand-alone papers, rather than PhD progress reports, on any public management topics but the selection process will prioritize the papers which are most relevant to the conference theme. The theme of the IRSPM Conference 2023 is:

United or divided? Public value(s), Management and Governance in turbulent times

The proposals will consist of a short outline of the paper (no longer than 500 words in length), with authors’ contact details on a separate sheet.

The outline will cover the following:

  1. purpose of the paper,
  2. intended contribution to the literature
  3. methods,
  4. main findings..

Any queries about submissions should be directed to the Panel Chair Maria Cucciniello maria.cucciniello@unibocconi.it
