The European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP)
& ESSEC Business School

Present the:

 

1st Annual Gathering of

Academic Centres of Philanthropy
2-3 November, 2017

At ESSEC Business School – Cergy-Pontoise (Paris Area)


 

 
Short Description
 
The First Annual Gathering for Academic Centres of Philanthropy brings together the directors and leaders of ERNOP institutional members and additional invited academic centres of philanthropy for candid and collaborative discussions regarding the challenges and opportunities in the teaching and research of philanthropy. This small and intimate working conference hopes to create an active and open space to uncover and share insights, experiences, and ideas about running a successful philanthropy institution. Opportunities for future collaborations will also take center stage.

 

This inaugural gathering is organized by the ESSEC Philanthropy Chair at ESSEC Business School (France) and the European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP).

 The first day is dedicated to workshops among the directors of leaders of ERNOP institutional member organizations and additional invited academic philanthropic centres. The second day adds leading practitioners from philanthropic organizations. Leaders will be able to discuss what works, what doesn’t work, what is new, and what to try next.


 Registration

This event is open to ERNOP institutional members and additional invited attendees. To ensure a small and intimate environment, participation will be limited to roughly 60 people and is by invitation only.

ESSEC has agreed to sponsor the registration fees for the first 3 people from each ERNOP institutional member or other invited institutions and foundations. Additional attendees from each institution would be asked to pay a 120€ conference fee. Lunches, Thursday dinner, and coffee breaks are included, but travel and lodging is attendees’ responsibility. There will also be an optional pre-gathering dinner on Wednesday, 1 November, and an optional post-gathering apéro (happy hour) following the event.

An official registration site will be set up soon. If you or members of your team have questions or are interested, please express your interest by sending an informal email to greg.molecke@essec.edu with rough estimates of names/number of people from your organization who might attend and any suggestions you have for workshop topics.

Deadline to Register: September 19, 2017


  Day 1 Workshops

The first days workshops are intended specifically for academic centres of philanthropy. 
Workshop topics will be partially based on feedback from attendees and may include:
 

The Business Models of Academic Centres of Philanthropy.
What are the business models being used by ERNOPs institutional members? What are the key inputs, processes, and outputs? Are centres considering adding or discontinuing activities?

Improving Relationships with Funders and Partners
How do ERNOPs institutional members attract and manage their relationships with their partners? How do centres manage the diverse needs and interest of multiple partners?

Opportunities for Collaboration among Academic Centres
How might ERNOPs institutional members better work together? Attending members will be submit ideas and suggestions prior to the gathering and will discuss these proposals.

Communicating Impact and Gaining Visibility for Our Work
How do ERNOPs institutional members communicate to general and non-academic audiences? How can academic centres better convey their impact to a broader audience?

Philanthropy and Academic Publishing
Strategies for publishing philanthropy-based academic research in top journals.

Teaching Philanthropy 
How is philantrhopy being taught in the classroom? What resources are available? 


  Day 2 Workshops

The second days workshops are joint discussions between the directors and leaders of both academic and practitioner organizations. Three sessions will showcase academic centres work and how it might be valuable for practitioners. Themes will be developed based on the submissions received. A final session is devoted to creating next steps for both a second gathering and for new partnership and collaboration opportunities.
