Bridging Enterprise, Policy and Practice: Creating Social and Public Value


The abstract submission window will open March 2020

In a changing world in which entrepreneurship and innovation are critical to economic development, it is more important than ever that academic research on enterprise and small business connects with practice and policy. Knowledge exchange is critical in making sure that research reflects the current priorities of entrepreneurs, innovators and organisational leaders, and addresses the complexities and challenges of designing appropriate and effective policy. These challenges crystalize in understanding better the wider context and purpose of entrepreneurship, in reflecting on the range of social and public challenges that entrepreneurial thinking is able to address, and in appreciating the role of social and for-profit enterprises in meeting these challenges.
