NHH is hosting the Nordic Academy of Management conference in 2007. We hereby apply for financial support to organize and run the conference. The Nordic Academy of Management aims to develop research, education and practise within the management and busin ess administration area in the Nordic countries; Denmark, Finland, Island, Norway and Sweden. The conference is an essential arena for succeeding in this.
The conference has attracted between 300 and 600 participants (300 participants at The 18th NFF co nference in Denmark and 600 participants at the 17th conference in Island). In Bergen we hope to attract between 400-500 contributors. Last years the numbers of participants from other European countries has been increasing and the 2007 committee consciou sly works to reinforce this trend. The conference represents an excellent opportunity to present academic research for other Nordic and European researchers.
Contributions from all fields of business administration are welcome: accounting, finance, mana gement science, marketing, organization, and strategy. In recent years, the contributions have tended to concentrate on organization and strategy. In Bergen 2007, we therefore aim to increase the contributions from other business administration fields ( accounting, finance, management science and marketing) and hence strive for a more equal representation.
