FINT - The First International Network on Trust was created in 2001 at the Workshop on 'Trust Within and Between Organizations' in Amsterdam as a group of academics and practitioners from around the globe who are interested in the study of trust. Membership is relatively informal so far, just send an email to the Communications Officer using the "Contact Us" function on the left hand side. We also run the FINT LinkedIn Group to be used for ongoing discussions and announcements.
We're meeting November 16-18, 2016 in the Royal College of Surgeons Dublin, right in the heart of Dublin city centre surrounded by the pubs, restaurants and theatres that have made the historic city such popular tourist destination. We are particularly excited to welcome Professor Paul Zak (Claremont Graduate University, Neuroeconomics) and Professor Bill McEvily (University of Toronto, Strategic Management) as keynote speakers who will take up this challenge to provoke thinking and rethinking on our current approaches trust.
We are deeply saddened to share with you the devastating news that our dear friend and colleague Graham Dietz passed away a few days before Christmas 2014 following the aftereffects of a cardiac arrest. His funeral was held on 6th January 6, 2015 at Durham Cathedral in Durham, England.
On this page, we honour Graham both as a colleague and as a friend. Many of you knew Graham well and shared many experiences with him at conferences, seminars and through collaborative projects. If you would like to post something about Graham, we invite and encourage you to do so on this page. Below is a tribute to Graham by one of his close colleagues, Nicole Gillespie.
Working with Grahm's wife, Valeria Dietz, an education fund has been set up to help support Graham’s son Liam (11) to realise his father's dream of attending a top UK university. You may wish to consider making a contribution to this education fund. (Please see below for further details).
