Workshop organized by the University of Bergamo, 25-26 May 2023
Letters, Philosophy, Communication Campus

Submission Deadline: 15th April 2023

The ENTERYNG WORKSHOP “ENTreprenEurship Research workshop for YouNG scholars” represents an opportunity for PhD students and early-career scholars to discuss their research collecting constructive feedbacks from a group of scholars that gathered around the workshop along the years. In addition to facilitating fruitful discussions, in fact, this research workshop supports the development of an international community of early-career researchers interested in entrepreneurship, innovation, international entrepreneurship and family business, connecting them with more senior scholars. Together with specific feedback on their working papers, participants will have the opportunity to attend keynote speeches by internationally renowned scholars, which are aimed to stimulate provocative reflections on one’s own research and career. Finally, the workshop activities are aimed at offering participants valuable suggestions and practical-oriented advice on crafting high quality research papers, targeting highly ranked journals, identifying intriguing research questions, as well as presenting research to academic audiences.

The 9th edition will be hosted and organized by the University of Bergamo.
