Goals & Format
The aim of this 2-days meeting is to bring researchers across the Netherlands together who are interested in and actively researching the link between psychology and entrepreneurship. The researchers present their empirical or conceptual research, discuss their studies, learn from each other, meet potential new collaborators, and develop research ideas, as well as ways of collaborating in the future.


Format: each person will present a research project or paper to the entire group of participants (15 min presentations) and this will be followed by a 15 min discussion. Each presentation will have an assigned discussant.
Role of the discussant: provide input on and your assessment of the paper/project; stimulate discussion in the audience; prepare 1-3 statements/questions that may be discussed in the whole group.

The discussants can but not necessarily have to prepare a/some power point slide(s). Moreover, in the second part of the meeting, we discuss opportunities for future collaboration (see agenda below).
