    Dear ONE Community:

    "Bringing natural sciences with organization and management studies" probably sounds like a nice phrase to many in ONE. But how can we concretely walk the talk? How can we build these bridges: with who, with which resources (including time, funding and attention span)? And how can we be compelling - both within and across our disciplines - as we seek to build these bridges?

    We can't promise that this webinar will address all these and other questions, but hopefully it'll be a safe space for reflecting together about this a bit deeper than usual. Therefore: 

    The Management & Organization for Sustainable Transformations (MOST) research group at Montpellier Business School invites you to the following event: 

    Title: "Bridging Natural and Social Sciences in Management & Organization Studies" 

    Taking place on: May 15th, 2022, from 12.30 to 14.00 CET | Online via MS Teams: link available upon registration in leaflet attached.

    We invite you to participate in our quest of developing practices, and reflecting on the challenges and opportunities, of bridging natural and social sciences to confront some of the most complex issues of our times, such as biodiversity loss, water scarcity, and agricultural adaptation and transformation in the face of climate change. As management and organization scholars, and as social scientists more in general, we pose ourselves a number of questions on the epistemological and methodological dimensions, but also institutional and political dimensions, of building these bridges. This event will be an opportunity to share these questions and hopefully, as a result, also to build some generative bridges among us as participants. You are all invited to attend and participate! With this purpose, after three triggers from discussants at different European schools and research institutes, we are leaving a large time for an open floor discussion. 

    12.30-12.35: Welcome and introduction, by Domenico Dentoni and Lucie Baudoin 
    12.35-13.05: Dive into three initiatives bridging natural, social and organization sciences: 
    - Bridging sciences to tackle biodiversity issues by Fay Kahane and Stefano Pascucci, University of Exeter
    Bridging sciences to address water issues by Lucie Baudoin, Excelia Business School 
    - Bridging sciences to confront agricultural issues by Louis Tessier  ILVO and Domenico Dentoni  Montpellier Business School  
    13.05-14.00: Open floor for conversation among discussants and participants 

    Feel free to join and actively participate.

    Kind regards,

    Domenico Dentoni (co-organizing this with Lucie BaudoinFay KahaneStefano Pascucci and Louis Tessier)
