ERIM, HOPE & EIM Research Day: "An overview of research on entrepreneurship"



In the week of 16-22 November, the Global Entrepreneurship Week will be held in over 75 countries all over the World. As this is the world’s most entrepreneurial week of the year we would like to combine this with a research event on entrepreneurship. The goal of this event is to give an overview of ongoing research in the Netherlands, to discuss future topics and focus of research and to strengthen our network with fellow entrepreneurship researchers. This pre-GEW-research day will take place on Friday 13 November and will be hosted by EIM in Zoetermeer.
