The workshop was organised by Business School doctoral researchers Alex Christian (Entrepreneurship and Innovation), Eduardo Hernandez (Strategy) and Philipp Lutz (Accounting and Finance). Funded through the School's 'PhD World Class Workshop' scheme, the 'Acting Towards Promising Futures' workshop took place on Friday 17 June 2022 in the Conference Room at the Business School.
The workshop offered 7 insightful presentations by senior and doctoral researchers coming from a range of different disciplines, such as Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Science and Technology Studies, Organisation Studies, Market Studies, Strategy, and CSR, with a common scholarly interest in the study of futures.
Thanks to the amazing speakers and to a highly engaged audience, the workshop was a big success and fostered a truly stimulating interdisciplinary conversation on the topic of 'future-making'.
It was a day full of energy, insightful presentations, and fruitful discussions, which continued at the wine reception on the Business School Concourse, and followed on into the late evening hours over dinner and drinks.

Many thanks again to everyone who participated in our 'Acting Towards Promising Futures' workshop. We hope to continue this stimulating interdisciplinary conversation on the topic of future studies with you!
