ECIE 2013


The 8th European Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Brussels, 19-20 Sep 2013; Deadline 28 Feb

Call for Papers, Posters, Round Table Proposals, Practitioner Contributions and Product Demonstrations for the 8th European Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship ECIE 2013

19-20 September, Brussels, Belgium

The conference provides an international opportunity for scientific discussion and collaboration on a broad range of relevant fertile areas associated to recent trends in innovation. Over the last years, there is a growing recognition in business environments of the key role played by innovation in the creation and success of businesses. In a dynamic environment, uncertain contexts like those we are currently experiencing, the capacity and necessary attitude for creating new firms is fundamental and the probability of success is largely determined by innovation. At the same time there is a growing recognition of the need of more sustainable innovation, combining economic, ecologic and social aspects. These challenges combined with limited internal resources and high risk and complexity enhance (social) networking in innovation and entrepreneurship. At the same time, policy makers face important challenges to stimulate and provide the necessary means for innovation and entrepreneurship.

The conference will broadly be organized around but not limited to the following:

  • Sustainable (Ecological) Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Policy frameworks and impact of Science and Technology policy measures for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Regional Economic Development
  • Human Resources (including Mobility issues) for Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Entrepreneurial Learning and Education
  • Open Innovation and External Knowledge Interactions
  • Social networks in Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Corporate Finance and Financial Constraints for Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Strategies, business models, processes and practices for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Management practices in Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship during Economic and Financial Crisis
  • Value Creation, Product Development and Intellectual Property

All submission types require an abstract in the first instance. Abstracts should be a minimum of 300 and no more than 500 words including up to five keywords and keyphrases to be received by 28 February 2013.
