CeFEO Visiting program

We regularly invite Ph.D. students and faculty members to spend a visiting research period at JIBS in our rich research environment with the goal of cooperating with us and strengthening our research in the areas of family business and ownership.

During the research period, CeFEO and JIBS provide visitors with office space and access to the university and library resources, as well as multiple research activities (e.g., seminars, workshops). The duration of these visits range from 2 weeks to 6 months depending on the needs of the visitors and CeFEO availability. Multiple research projects, teaching activities, and publications emerge from such visits and collaborations.
