Collaborative Research Award Schemes

BAM together with the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM), Irish Academy of Management (IAM) and Società Italiana di Management (SIMA) are pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 grant schemes.

Internationally collaborative research is very important and BAM is delighted to be able to join with sister organisations in other parts of the world in offering grants that make that happen.

  • BAM/ANZAM Collaborative Research Award (maximum £6,000 per project)
  • BAM/IAM Collaborative Research Award (maximum £4,000 or €4,500 per project)
