CFR Research School in Retailing

At a glance

• Purpose: to strengthen retail research both nationally and internationally. The aim is to build a foundation for both academically and practically relevant retail research.

• Content: Four PhD courses covering a broad range of retail topics, delivered by top-level researchers. All courses are intertwined with a number of industry collaborations (Business Collaboration Events). This ensures that the research school is focused not only on theoretically relevant research, but also on practically relevant research topics that can strengthen retailing in society.

In 2018, 25 PhD candidates from 16 universities in eight countries participated in the first edition of the research school. In 2020, 22 PhD students from 15 universities in 7 countries were part of the program. In 2022, those numbers were 23 participants from 15 universities in 11 different countries.
