Welcome to the SIG Entrepreneurship!

Here is an overview of the specific activities that we have programmed for our Entrepreneurship Special Interest Group (E-ship SIG) and that we invite you warmly to attend :

- Pre-conference activity:

 June 26 th at 9.00-12.00, room: B3 Floor - 3B10

Description and aims
This year Entrepreneurship SIG wants to promote collaborations and idea sharing among its members and to such purpose it has organized a workshop open to all EURAM attendees, aimed at setting future road map for research of Entrepreneurship SIG gathering scholars around specific research interests.
The deliverables of this pre-conference are multiple:
1) Strengthening connections and relations inside Entrepreneurship SIG
2) Finding international partners for project, institutions for exchanges and colleagues for publications
3) Taking part to the future direction of Entrepreneurship SIG.

The pre-conference is organized into two sessions: 1) participants will be divided into small groups of people that share similar research interests. With the facilitation of one of ENT SIG officers, the group will discuss and compose possible research agenda and avenues for future collaborations and research; 2) single group discussion will be reported to the general audience and doing this will be structured more in details actions and programs to be undertaken. Yet some possible themes for next year SIG’s program and publication will be highlighted.

Interested people should return a short proposal to and no later than 19 of June 2013.
