Estonia Hosts Its Largest-Ever Scientific Conference




Estonia kicked off its largest-ever scientific conference on July 5 in Tallinn. The 34th European Group for Organizational Studies Colloquium (EGOS) is a three-day event that, at as many as 2,000 delegates, set a record for the largest international scientific gathering the country has hosted to date. 

The event, which was locally organized by the Estonian Business School (EBS), was attended by academics from top universities and research institutions worldwide, as well as by representatives of major scientific journals. The theme of the gathering was the role that surprises play in the functioning of organizations. 

The event’s keynote speaker was Tor Hernes, a professor of organization theory and the director of the Copenhagen-based Centre for Organizational Time. Another notable presenter was Cambridge University professor Mark de Rond, who researches the functioning of organizations in extreme circumstances. 

More than 60 sub-themes were discussed at various sessions over the three days. Additionally, a portion of the delegates arrived early to attend pre-colloquium workshops, which began on July 2. Meetings took place at EBS, as well as at Tallinn University, with the Tallinn Creative Hub serving as the site of the EGOS dinner and party on the evening of July 6. 

Founded in 1973, the Berlin-based European Group for Organizational Studies is a worldwide scientific, network-based association focusing on the field of organisation research. It has more than 2,500 members in 60 nations.
