Call for papers:

In the academic literature as well as business practice, the entrepreneurship, innovation and design perspectives are increasingly interacting and complementing each other. In this DARE seminar, co-organized with the Innovation, Technology Entrepreneurship and Marketing (ITEM) group of TU/e, we invite papers and presentations about research in which these different perspectives feed on each other. For example, we welcome proposals addressing:

  • empirical studies of design knowledge used by entrepreneurs (e.g. bricolage, effectuation, improvisation);
  • how incubation systems and ecosystems for new business creation are designed and developed;
  • design (science) driven work on any other entrepreneurial phenomenon;
  • entrepreneurial processes and outcomes in the context of innovation and renewal efforts by OEM’s and SME’s;
  • how interactions and collaborations between entrepreneurs, firms and government agencies shape processes and outcomes related to entrepreneurship and innovation;
  • collaborative work between scholars and practitioners in the area of entrepreneurship, innovation and/or design.

This seminar aims to discuss, reflect on and further develop submitted papers. The program allows for a limited number of presentations; if you are interested in presenting your work, please submit a short abstract (max. 300 words) in a word-compatible format electronically to a.g.l.romme@tue.nl before March 1, 2016. Abstracts will be evaluated by the organizing committee and acceptance will be notified by email before March 15.

Organizing committee: Sharon Dolmans, Isabelle Reymen, Nardo de Vries & Sjoerd Romme
