Collaborative Research Seminar Series

This collaborative seminar series at IEI is a platform for the presentation of research at all stages to promote disciplinary and interdisciplinary exchange at the Department of Management and Engineering (IEI). 

The seminar series is aimed at senior and junior researchers within and outside LiU. The seminars are usually held in English. The presentation of research in the seminar series takes place both by invitation and by contacting the seminar leaders.

To receive 5 credits, participants must attend 7 seminars and write a reflection report on one of the CSS seminars. Participation in the 2022 seminars can be credited and used for participation in the 2023 CSS seminars. For further information please contact Professor Magnus Klofsten (

Upcoming seminars

Collaborative Research Seminar Series: Meaningful research: on having something to say and reaching an audience when doing research

Research is a matter of getting published, a mixed blessing in terms of having something original and valuable to say, outside a small micro-tribe of similar minded researchers. This seminar addresses the current state of affairs in academia, dominated by EMP-ability (being employ-, metrics- and promotable). Join seminar with Mats Alvesson, Professor, Lund University to discuss ways out of this: idea generation, methodologies supporting empirical work and writing beyond the journal formular.

Start 11 April 2023, 10.00 am
End 11 April 2023, 12.00 pm
Location ACAS, A Building, Campus Valla, Linköping

Collaborative Research Seminar Series: Organizing Rocks

Once, the mine, and its activities, and Kiruna town hold together in; a reciprocal relationship. But what happens when the mining company becomes less dependent on the Kiruna citizens. When the company turns to fly-in-fly-out work arrangements. When fixed employment are replaced with contractors. When fever hands are needed to the the ore up and out? Listen to Professor Tommy Jensen at Stockholm University to find out.

Start 25 April 2023, 1.00 pm
End 25 April 2023, 3.00 pm
