Participants have the option of staying for the Entrepreneurship and joint parts only – starting in the morning of the 8th and ending in the early afternoon of the 9th – but they are warmly invited to attend the IMO part on the 7th as well.

– Luigi Zingales (University of Chicago, Booth School of Business and CEPR)

TOPICS: The Economics of Entrepreneurship Workshop will bring together researchers interested in studying entrepreneurship. We welcome submissions related to incentives promoting entrepreneurship, relevant program evaluations, entrepreneurship and institutions, financing entrepreneurship (venture capital/business angels), experimentation and entrepreneurship, job creation and entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship in the theory of the firm, and entrepreneurship from an industrial organization perspective. We welcome theory, empirics, and experiments in these and related areas.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: The (draft) papers should be submitted by Wednesday 1 March 2017. Please send your paper submissions to Chloe Smith, Events Officer, at csmith@cepr.org before the deadline and indicate whether or not you would require travel and/or accommodation funding and whether you would be willing to act as a discussant on the programme.

PhD course by Scott Stern

Professor Scott Stern who is visiting INO this fall is giving a PhD course under the heading Economics of Ideas, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The course emphasizes how the unusual characteristics of ideas that result in innovation and entrepreneurship pose specific theoretical and empirical challenges for researchers, and how overcoming those challenges in a rigorous way provides foundations for policy and strategy. The sessions include a mixture (and explicit comparisons of) both theoretical and empirical research, as well as opportunities for feedback on specific research projects and proposals.

You can find the course outline here.

Mirjam van Praag new Research Fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research

Mirjam van Praag has been invited to become a Research Fellow in the Industrial Organization Programme of the Centre for Economic Policy Research.

The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) was founded in 1983 to enhance the quality of economic policy-making within Europe and beyond, by creating excellent, policy-relevant economic research, and disseminating it widely to policy influencers in the public and private sectors and civil society.

CEPR is based on a new model of organization, which we call a “thinknet”: a distributed network of economists, who are affiliated with but not employed by CEPR, collaborating through the Centre on a wide range of policy-related research projects and dissemination activities.

Research Fellows are appointed for four-year renewable periods, to maintain selectivity, competition, and a continuous infusion of new people and ideas. The Centre encourages its Research Fellows to be active participants in its work, not merely names on its academic masthead; submitting research for publication and presentation at public dissemination meetings, participating in workshops, seminars and conferences and proposing and directing projects administered by the Centre.

Vera Rocha IZA Research Affiliate

Vera Rocha has accepted a 2 year appointment as Research Affiliate at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA).

IZA, established in 1998, is a non-profit research center in labor economics supported by the Deutsche Post Foundation.

IZA is now widely recognized as a leading institute for labor market research. This success is based on a dynamic local team in Bonn, Germany, as well as the world’s largest network of labor economists who cooperate with us as research fellows and affiliates. IZA also maintains close ties with the renowned economics faculty at the University of Bonn as with many other universities and policy-oriented research centers around the world.

The affiliation will give Vera the opportunity to join the many research activities of the Institute.

Ivory Tower and Entrepreneurship

In order to answer the question ‘Are universities, often perceived as ivory towers, a right place for prospective entrepreneurs to learn and grow?,’ INO researchers Toke Reichstein and Jing Chen have made an analysis based on data from Statistics Denmark to find out how many university graduates actually become entrepreneurs.

You can read what they have found out in the article in the CBS Observer: http://cbsobserver.dk/ivory-tower-and-entrepreneurship-0

 

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Prof. Toke Reichstein is the designated speaker at the spring 2016 “From PhD to ABC” event held at Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship and  co-organized with the CBS Entrepreneurship BiS Platform. These events offers a forum in which researchers translate some of their research results into tangible information that can help students or others make better choices in business or in terms of personal career choices. These events foremost centers on entrepreneurship research.

Abstract: Entrepreneurs often face decisions that are both difficult and challenging. Two of the most major decisions regards A) whether to establish a new venture and B) whether to close down the newly started venture if things are not going as planned.

Recent research partly carried out at CBS sheds new light on these decisions. Virgilio Failla (LMU), Francesca Melillo (KU Leuven) and Toke Reichstein (CBS) have scrutinised Danish labor market data to understand when and why entrepreneurs start their own business and why they persist relatively long in the entrepreneurial career.

These findings have major implications for understanding the entrepreneurial choice and the survival of new businesses. And they give entrepreneurs some understanding of when to even consider becoming an entrepreneur and why they sometimes prolong their ventures even when they should close them down.

Date: 19 May 2016

Place: CSE, Porcelænshaven 26, 2000, Frederiksberg, Denmark
