Mine Karatas-Ozkan, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at Southampton Business School, was appointed as Vice President Talent Development of EURAM (European Academy of Management) earlier this year.

EURAM is a learned society that promotes and advances the academic discipline of management and organisation studies. In her role, Mine is now responsible for talent development, including all forms of doctoral and early career researcher education and research programme development. She will also lead collaboration with other influential European and global organisations in the domain of doctoral education and research, with the emphasis on relevance, rigour and responsibility as the key principles underpinning social science.

Mine has contributed to, and found great meaning in, the EURAM community since her doctoral years. In 2015 she became a Mentor, and subsequently Lead Chair of the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium. In 2019 she was awarded the status of EURAM Fellow in recognition of her outstanding intellectual contributions to her research communities and services to EURAM.

Doctoral education and mentoring of early career academic colleagues have been Mine’s passion. With competition and expectations increasing for young academics, she sees supporting students and nurturing their talents – especially through their transition out of PhD – as particularly important. EURAM provides a community whereby the emphasis is on collaboration and mutual support in order to nurture the development of its members. Mine is a great believer in the EURAM network for both personal and professional development.

Her colleague, Head of Southampton Business School, Professor Laura Costanzo, commented: "I am very pleased to learn that Mine has been appointed to such an important role, which is a testimony to her hard work and dedication to the EURAM community. Mine has always been passionate about doctoral students and early career researchers throughout her career at the University of Southampton. I have no doubt that the EURAM and wider academic community will enormously benefit from the set of expertise and skills that Mine will bring in this new leadership role shaping the future of doctoral education and academic talent development"

Mark Spearing, Vice-President (Research and Enterprise) added: “I am delighted that Mine has been recognised in this way. I know that she will provide important leadership to EURAM. Talent development is critical, and it has never been more important to be able to offer support within a nurturing community to early career researchers. They are the future.”
