The goal of the LogDynamics Doctoral Workshop is to forge a seed of young researchers from different disciplines, who share the interest in mechanisms for coordination of logistics processes as well as in the cooperation and competitiveness in supply chains. Therefore, the Doctoral Workshop is organized as satellite event of the LDIC 2020 and will take place in the two days leading up to the conference. It will offer one day with a focus on scientific contribution, including presentations and discussions with scholars in the field, including topics related to research design, methodological paradigms and methods, and knowledge production. The workshop takes into account the persistent need for enhancing the social and economic impact of research, and will specifically focus on problem-oriented research and address the effects of important trends such as digitalization on research practices. It will also include one day on the contemporary needs of enterprises and how to ensure practical relevance of projects.
