8th international Conference Dutch HRM Network

The 8th Biennial International Conference of the Dutch HRM Network http://www.hrm-network.nl/conference will be held in Leuven, Belgium. It is jointly organized by the Research Centre for Organisation Studies of the Faculty of Economics and Business, KU Leuven and the Area People & Organisation of the Vlerick Business School.

The conference has been designed as a two-day programme (14-15 November), preceded by a one-day PhD student consortium (13 November).

For early arrivers we organise a company visit to Imec on 13 November, 16-18h. Imec is a KU Leuven spin-off that performs world-leading research in nanoelectronics. We will combine a site visit with a presentation by the Executive Vice President Human Resources, Hubert De Neve, about HR challenges in an international and knowledge-intensive environment. The company visit is free of charge but registration is mandatory. You can register for this extra activity by checking off the appropriate box in the registration form.

During the conference a best paper and best dissertation award will be presented.

The venue of the conference will be the Faculty of Economics and Business of the KU Leuven and the Leuven campus of the Vlerick Business School.
