Welcome to the CCC Doctoral Conference

2012_cCC_4Now in its 22st year, the Consortium on Competitiveness and Cooperation (“CCC”) Conference for Doctoral Student Research is an annual conference dedicated to assisting doctoral students improve their dissertation research on topics related to organization and economic theory, technology management and firm strategy, entrepreneurship, and the co-evolution of industrial structure, organizational structure, and innovation.
The CCC Doctoral Conference emphasizes student mentoring by respected scholars, many of whom are consortium alums, through comments, constructive feedback, and dialogue. About 30 students each year give a succinct presentation of their dissertation followed by feedback a designated faculty expert and the entire assembled community of CCC scholars.
The Doctoral Consortium itself is preceded by the “Faculty Day,” where sessions are organized as discussions led by expert panelists on topics of interest to the community, to facilitate learning from each other.
Thus, the Conference has many opportunities for interactions between and among faculty and doctoral students.  This interactive structure of the conference encourages both faculty and student participants to cut across both disciplinary boundaries and individual research agendas.
The CCC Doctoral Conference is generously sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and is typically held in the spring of each year.  Application information can be found on this website.  Follow us on Twitter.
