Background to the Foundation of the Continental Network

Throughout Europe, there is a variety of different research cultures and competences with a huge potential for synergy and opportunities for learning from each other. The BAM Continental Network aspires, especially in times of Brexit, to connect scholars and industry representatives from these different backgrounds for an international exchange of knowledge, ideas and approaches/methods to the benefit of the BAM community. In this initiative also lays great potential for the growth of the BAM community, as peers in continental Europe could become members of BAM to benefit from joint activities and events

Aims and Objectives

  • Establish a platform for knowledge exchange between the scholars in the UK and continental Europe
  • Strengthen the ties between the UK and European institutions and associations in times of Brexit through cooperation and joint activities
  • Provide the BAM community with international events in other (research) cultures
  • Enrich academic debates with perspectives from other research cultures
  • Create a nucleus for further growth in Continental Europe
  • Provide opportunities for participation to the wider community of BAM outside the UK
  • Being an organic part of the BAM organisational structure and processes

Board of Advisers

The board of advisers of the Continental Network supports our initiative through an exchange of knowledge and expertise, the opportunity for holding joint workshops and events as well as the provision of excellent keynote speakers.
