IECER 2018:
Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Future –
The Future of Entrepreneurship and Innovation

The forthcoming 16th IECER-Entrepreneurship Conference will take place from 26 – 28 September 2018 in Innsbruck hosted by MCI Management Center Innsbruck.

Today, entrepreneurs and innovators face a world in disruptive change: New digital technologies, smart products and services, digital business models, new materials, changing societal structures, mass-individualization, economic volatility, crypto-currencies, new modes of knowledge creation and storage, and, finally, create global challenges.
Being embedded into these dynamic environments, it is reasonable to assume that entrepreneurship and innovation, on the one hand, must reactively adapt to these changes, but, on the other hand, are also forced to actively explore and exploit new opportunities.

The 16th IECER conference particularly wants to stimulate an interdisciplinary discussion within the research community and between research and business practitioners about whether our existing theories, models, heuristics, methodologies, and analytical frameworks of entrepreneurship and innovation are still valid to deliver appropriate findings and practical implications in the future. In which sense do we have to rethink and modify the existing ones? Is there need for new theoretical, empirical, and management approaches?

You are cordially invited to contribute with your research to the IECER 2018 and provide new empirical and conceptual insights into future modes of entrepreneurship and innovation, open-up new perspectives, and sketch tomorrow’s research agendas in this field.
The call for paper will be out in February 2018.

We look forward seeing you in Innsbruck!
The IECER 2018 team

The Interdisciplinary European Conference on Entrepreneurship Research IECER is an annual international conference on entrepreneurship topics attracting scholars and delegates from academia, business and government officials from around the world. Founded in 2003 by Jürgen Schmude (University of Munich) and Michael Dowling (University of Regensburg), the mission of IECER is to advance interdisciplinary entrepreneurship research in Europe. In ten years, Michael Dowling and Jürgen Schmude have established the conference as one of the leading conferences on interdisciplinary entrepreneurship research in Europe, providing researchers from a variety of disciplines the opportunity discuss their latest research advancements. Conceived as a high quality forum of entrepreneurship debate, the conference is held every year at different locations across Europe (Amsterdam, Brescia, Chur, Montpellier, Munich, Lisbon, Siegen, etc. ) in the past years.
After the 10th anniversary of the IECER, the academic coordination was handed over to Frank Lasch (Montpellier Business School) and Kerstin Wagner (HTW Chur). In September 2018, the 16th edition of the IECER will take place at the Management Center Innsbruck in Austria hosted by Bernd Ebersberger and Oliver Som.
