On July 6, 2017, the Roland Calori Prize was awarded for the eighth time at the 33rd EGOS Colloquium in Copenhagen, Denmark. Professors Fabrizio Ferraro (IESE Business School), Dror Etzion (McGill University), and Joel Gehman (Alberta School of Business) won the award for their paper, “Tackling Grand Challenges Pragmatically: Robust Action Revisited.” Read the paper here.

The Roland Calori Prize is awarded bi-annually by the European Group for Organization Studies (EGOS) for the best article published in the journal Organization Studies over the previous two years. Awarded in tribute to professor Roland Calori for his contributions to EGOS, Organization Studies, and EMLYON Business School, the prize recognizes papers that display methodological quality and theoretical innovation, reflecting the diverse perspectives of social sciences as they relate to organizational studies. In the spirit of Roland Calori’s own work, the prize reflects pluralism in research traditions and diversity of paradigms. The prize of €2,000 is sponsored by EMLyon.
