24th – 25th May, 2016
The Glendonbrook Institute for Enterprise Development, and Loughborough University London (LU London) are hosting a conference on Entrepreneurship and Innovation to which it invites scholars as presenters and/or participants.
This conference represents a great opportunity to showcase research, receive useful feedback, enter into discussions with fellow scholars, form collaborations, and generally meet like-minded colleagues in a friendly and supportive environment.
Keynote: Professor Mike Wright, Imperial College Business School
LU London is based inside the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, a bustling and easy-to-get-to location. Our School is a smart modern facility with a lovely Harvard-style lecture theatre which we shall use for the conference. The Olympic Park should be awash with flowers in May – worth visiting in its own right.
The conference theme is entrepreneurship and innovation – contributions tightly or more loosely connected to the theme are invited. These can be PhD findings, works-in-progress, or (almost) final versions of articles ready for submission to top journals.
The conference starts at 10.30 on Tuesday 24th May and ends at 3.30pm on Wednesday 25th May. You can present your research in a 30 minute session (15 minutes should be allowed for discussion) or bring a poster. Some fringe events are also being planned for entrepreneurs and small business owners, schedule TBA.
The conference is FREE with tea/coffee and lunch provided on both days. You will have to pay for your own travel.
