JIBS in collaboration with University of Helsinki, University of Umeå and the Research and Cooperation Centre FO-RUM invites you to a workshop titled ’Projects and Temporary Organizations from an Interdisciplinary Perspective’.

We invite in particular scholars representing different disciplines like historians, sociologists, psychologists, social work specialists, pedagogy etc. to deliver papers elaborating on the concept and implications of project organizations in the disciplines they represent.
The main focus of the workshop is to increase our understanding of projects in society as well as to develop theoretical and conceptual discussions by which respective disciplines can increase the understanding of projects and project based activities.
We invite participants to submit abstracts containing a brief description of their theoretical and conceptual view on projects and temporary organizations. The abstracts should be no more than 500 words in length and should be sent to the workshop conveners by 1st of December 2010.
