Entrepreneurs and innovators face a world of disruptive change: New digital technologies, smart products and services, changing societal structures, mass-individualization, economic volatility, crypto-currencies, new modes of knowledge creation and storage, and, finally, global challenges.
The 16th IECER conference particularly wants to stimulate an interdisciplinary discussion about whether our existing theories, models, heuristics, methodologies, and analytical frameworks of entrepreneurship and innovation are still valid to deliver appropriate findings and practical implications in the future. In which sense do we have to rethink and modify the existing ones? Is there need for new theoretical, empirical, and management approaches? Submission deadline is 31 May 2018.
