‘Research, policy and practice: Collaboration in a disparate world’

In an environment of momentous change, both in the UK and the wider global stage itself, the need to address small business growth and entrepreneurship through collaboration has become imperative.

The findings and lessons from academic research in the area need more than ever to be shared, discussed and actioned by the worlds of academia, policy and practice. All are being driven to find the most cost-effective and immediate solutions to their challenges, whether it be local, national or international.

As ISBE enters its fifth decade, the Institute looks forward to welcoming delegates to its 41st conference in Birmingham, UK.

As part of their abstracts this year, authors have been invited to highlight the implications of their research for policy and practice. ISBE will ensure that these implications are shared with our networks in these spheres, via our partnerships with The Entrepreneurs’ Network /All-party Committee on Entrepreneurship and the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs respectively, so that effective collaboration can be supported and new connections made.
