On May, 7 and 8 BBS is hosting a two-day scientific workshop on science-based entrepreneurship, gathering some of most prominent academics from 15 different countries, researching in this domain. The workshop is sponsored by the University of Bologna, BBS and the EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
The purpose of the workshop is to advance theoretical development and empirical analysis in Science-Based Entrepreneurship (SBE) studies. SBE provides an intriguing context for studying and theorizing about many phenomena of general interest to management and entrepreneurship scholars. To date, research on SBE has been mostly phenomenon driven. Although this research has led to many important insights, we see an untapped potential in using SBE for developing broader management theory.
