Qualitative Research Forum

The BI Qualitative Research Forum serves as a network where researchers can meet, share expertise, learn new things, and support early career scholars and PhD students who want to embrace the same methodological interest.

Participation is open to everybody interested in the topic and curious to learn. Doing qualitative research is not pre-requisite for attendance.

The forum was found in February 2022.
