European Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship
Engaged entrepreneurship research in Europe

Welcome to join the ECSB webinar “Advancing entrepreneurial ecosystem research” with Dr. Christina Theodoraki on 8 March 2023 at 3:00-4:00 pm (CET).

While the concept of an ecosystem is increasingly attracting the attention of researchers, practitioners, and governments, there is still partial (and even limited) knowledge about how building a sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystem fits different contexts, countries, populations, or industries. The objective of this research presentation is to shed light on this little-known concept in order to advance the discussion on territorial and international ecosystem dynamics based on current publications. This presentation aims at providing a research protocol with established and future avenues for research publication. Likewise, best practices and models will be provided on how to advance research on entrepreneurial ecosystems. Finally, research opportunities, special issues and conferences will be shared.
