Join us for the CIPD Applied Research Conference, 22-23 January 2020 at the Dublin City University (DCU) St Patrick’s Campus, Ireland

The Applied Research Conference (ARC) is an annual meeting place for academic researchers and practitioners working in people management, employment policy and related fields. It holds a unique place in bringing together these two communities to hear about cutting edge research in HR and discuss how it can be applied in practice. ARC is an interdisciplinary conference that covers a wide range of aspects of people management, employment, learning and development and organisational development. In all research papers presented, we set out to discuss the practical application of insights to organisational life and labour markets.

This year, the conference will be hosted by Dublin City University (DCU) Business School, Ireland, on their St Patrick’s Campus. One of Europe’s most dynamic business schools, DCU is ranked in the QS Top 50 Universities under 50 years old.

Fees for attending the Applied Research Conference 2020 are as follows:
