Deadline: April 13, 2012
Research on Collaborative Entrepreneurship and Innovation for a fundamental paradigm change towards sustainability is a promising and challenging academic field. It calls for a multitude of methods, combination of disciplines and new research designs.
The third oikos Young Scholars Entrepreneurship Academy provides a unique platform to develop emerging researchers. Exceptional graduate students and young faculty are at the center of the programme and they will have exposure to leading academics who provide feedback on their work and share advice about academic careers and personal development. The event includes paper development workshops, professional development roundtables, guest speeches and outdoor activities in the picturesque Swiss Alps.
In 2012 we aim at attracting papers fostering developments with regard to how entrepreneurial organizations can leverage existing and new solutions to overcome key sustainability challenges. Feedback will be given by fellow students and three internationally well-reputed researchers:
Jill R. Kickul, Director, Stewart Satter Program in Social Entrepreneurship, Berkley Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, NYU Stern School of Business
Holger Patzelt, TUM Chair of Entrepreneurship, TUM Munich, Germany
Wesley Sine, Faculty Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute, Cornell University, USA
The event aims to advance academic research, build networks across disciplinary boundaries and to prepare the ground for research that is highly relevant for theory and practice. To stimulate impact oriented mutual learning we aim to attract both advanced researchers and promising young PhD students presenting empirical and conceptual works in progress.
Participants will have the opportunity to apply their insights and skills in a practitioner day in cooperation with The Hub.
We welcome research proposals from young scholars and PhD students with a focus on Entrepreneurship, Business Policy, Strategy and related fields, e.g. on:
• Collaborative entrepreneurship, replication and scaling
• Social innovation and technology diffusion
• Regulatory innovation, partnerships and blended-value
• Intrapreneurship and corporate innovation
• Business models and open innovation
• Strategies for systemic change
• Co-creation and social entrepreneurship
This academy, organised for the third time in 2012, builds on the excellent experience with the annual oikos PRI Young Scholars Finance Academy and the oikos UNDP Young Scholars Development Academy. Participants are invited to become part of the oikos academic network.
To allow in-depth discussions the oikos Young Scholars Entrepreneurship Academy is limited to 15 PhD students and Post-Docs / Young Faculty.
The fee is CHF 400. The oikos Foundation for Economy and Ecology will cover the total cost of hotel accommodation, food and excursions.
