The 20th EuroFM Research Symposium was organised 16-17 June online. We would like to thank all the presenters, chairs, committee members and the audience for inspiring discussion, new FM knowledge and new connections. In total 15 presentations were given including 12 research paper presentations. The topic in the first afternoon was ‘making work work’ including presentations on work and work environments before, during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The second day focused on FM and REM theories and FM education. Please find the proceedings here.
Best Paper Award
Congratulations to Minou Weijs-Perrée, Rianne Appel-Meulenbroek, Jeroen Looijen, Bartele S. Hoekstra, and Pity Jongens-van der Schaaf for the Best Paper Award at the 20th EuroFM Research Symposium! The paper studied how office workers have perceived work-related communication while working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how this related to their perceived individual productivity.
The committee concluded that the paper has well-focused and relevant research aim motivated by current theoretical gaps and practical problems, is based on impressive data set and well-elaborated data analysis, and it provides novel and original contribution to the FM knowledge.
Thank you also for Theo van der Voordt, Antje Junghans and Susanne Balslev Nielsen for being members of the committee!
