Academic Brown Bag Presentations

The Academic Brown Bag Presentations (ABBPs) are organized for faculty members who would like to share their research projects with their peers in a friendly environment. The ABBP team also hosts inspiring non-Nyenrodians (including guest lecturers and visiting researchers) to present their academic research and expertise.

In doing so, the ABBP helps presenters:

  • to receive valuable feedback (perhaps prior to a journal submission),
  • to practice an upcoming presentation at an academic conference,
  • to rehearse an upcoming dissertation defense,
  • to keep the research project moving forward (nothing better than a deadline!), and,
  • to get in touch with relevant people in/outside Nyenrode Business Universiteit (the audience and their network).

Attendants are invited to discuss, question, and suggest possible avenues for improvement, as well as bring up relevant theories, contacts, etcetera.
