Title: Institutional Experimentation for Better Work - The CRIMT Partnership Project
Gregor Murray (School of Industrial Relations, University of Montreal), Christian Levesque (HEC, University of Montreal), Glenn Morgan (University of Bristol), Peter Turnbull (University of Bristol)
The CRIMT partnership is an international network of 30 research centres (including the University of Bristol School of Management) funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada seeking to build knowledge and understanding of how to make work better. The focus is on actors in the world of work who engage in social experimentation and on whether experimentation leads to work being better or worse.
As well as network opportunities at annual conferences and workshops, the CRIMT Partnership Project offers a range of resources for doctoral and early career researchers to facilitate exchange visits between members of the network, to fund periods of field work and to support attendance at events organized by members of the network.
The purpose of the seminar is to introduce the CRIMT Partnership Project and the opportunities it provides for Bristol faculty and doctoral students. We will also discuss the theoretical and empirical framing of the Project, offer some initial case study examples and discuss the broader relevance of this approach to developing research on work relations at the University of Bristol.
The seminar will consist of a series of short presentations on the Institutional Experimentation framework followed by a Panel and open discussion on developing approaches, research proposals and joint activities on the Future of Work.
