The Product Development & Management Association (PDMA) and the University of New Hampshire (UNH) are co-sponsoring the third triennial PDMA-UNH Doctoral Consortium from Wednesday, July 19 to Friday, July 21 2017. PDMA is recognized as the premier global advocate for academics, professionals and organizations working in the fields of new product development, management, and innovation (http://www.pdma.org/).
The Doctoral Consortium is devoted to teaching and mentoring doctoral students conducting impactful dissertation research on innovation and new product / service development and preparing the next generation of scholars in this important field of study. Students who are accepted into the Consortium will be honored as Doctoral Student Fellows and have a unique opportunity to network, collaborate, and exchange ideas and discuss their research with leading innovation scholars, editors, and executives at the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH (paulcollege.unh.edu).
The Consortium is expected to bring together about 50 participants (faculty, doctoral students, and practitioners) in a collaborative, open, and sociable setting in the beautiful Seacoast of New Hampshire with easy access to the Atlantic beaches or the White Mountains.
Additional benefits: Doctoral Student Fellows will compete for PDMA sponsored research support via access to PDMA’s membership to collect data, as well as the opportunity to present their research to the academic community at the Annual PDMA Research Forum.
All meals, housing, social activities, and local transportation will be provided free of charge to participating students. Students are only asked to cover their transportation costs to and from UNH, which is located about 70 miles from Boston, MA and 30 miles from Manchester, NH.
