In 2016 the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) launched a new Award to acknowledge individuals who have made exemplary contributions in interdisciplinary research.

EIASM believes that interdisciplinarity is needed to ensure that theory-building, empirical research, education and institution-building in management integrate knowledge and progress in an era of increasing specialization. This is essential to further develop management as a field that is able to advance theoretically, to provide relevant knowledge for students and practitioners, and to ultimately help to deal with the grand and highly complex challenges of contemporary society.

The 4th EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award will be handed over on 9th September 2021 to Professor of International Business Ingmar Björkman at the School of Business.

‘I see the award as a recognition of the work done during the last decade not only to enhance interdisciplinary in research and teaching, but we have done more generally to further increase the societal contribution of the business school and the university as a whole,’ says Ingmar Björkman, who served as the dean of the School of Business during 2012-19.

The award is meant to honor the work of exemplary scholarship and/or institutional leadership. This may be shown for instance in promoting specific cross-disciplinary streams of research, in developing new interdisciplinary theories or methods, in applying ideas, theories or methods from other sciences, and in interdisciplinary education or pedagogical innovations.
