Book your place today!

The Scottish Entrepreneurship Research Seminar (SERS) is an annual event organised by the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship. It aims to showcase the latest trends and issues of contemporary relevance for Entrepreneurship academia, policy and practice.

This year, SERS is dedicated to Entrepreneurial Diversity as a Force for Good and showcases two core themes:

  1. Neurodiversity as Inclusion in Entrepreneurship
  2. Entrepreneurship as a Bridge to Building Capabilities in Diverse contexts

Both themes reflect on the most recent work of Professor Nigel Lockett, Head of Department at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship (2019-2021) and aim to highlight his contributions to academia and practice: as a senior manager, experienced academic, entrepreneur and community leader, and a past president of the Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Nigel has contributed to a wider understanding of the importance of examining Entrepreneurial Diversity as a catalyst of practice and growth in diverse contexts.

The day-long seminar comprises sessions reflecting on the latest theoretical and practice-orientated perspectives of Entrepreneurial Diversity, a showcase of enterprises and initiatives, as well as a ‘horizons’ session, focusing on new research ideas and perspectives presented by PhD researchers. A Special Issue and an Edited Volume is envisaged on the same topics in collaboration with Neurodiversity and Entrepreneurship Association
