CALL FOR PAPERS

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP, INSTITUTIONS AND POLICIES

THE 2007 RATIO COLLOQUIUM FOR YOUNG SOCIAL SCIENTISTS

 

Stockholm

August-24-25, 2007

 

 

The aim of this colloquium is to bring together research

and researchers in different fields dealing with

entrepreneurship. We therefore invite young scholars,

including graduate students, in economics, political

science, economic history, economic geography, business

administration, law and economics, and related subjects to

submit proposals for a cross disciplinary colloquium/

workshop to be held in Stockholm in August 2007.

 

In addition to paper sessions there will be two plenary

sessions. One of the plenary speakers will be Professor

David B. Audretsch, Max Planck Institute, Jena, Germany and

Indiana University, Bloomington. The other plenary speaker

will be Professor Peter Boettke, George Mason University,

Washington.

 

 

TOPICS:

 

We especially welcome papers dealing with the following

areas:

 

- Industrial dynamics and firm demography

- Portfolio, serial and novice entrepreneurship

- Institutions and entrepreneurship

- Productive, unproductive and destructive entrepreneurship

- Entrepreneurship policy

 

Both theoretical and empirical papers are considered. The

papers submitted are expected to be work in progress - more

than ideas, but still unpublished papers. The 2007 Ratio

Young Scientist Award is awarded to the best paper

presented at the colloquium. The winning author will

receive 1000 Euro.

 

 

PAPER SUBMISSIONS/PARTICIPATION:

 

The number of papers that will be accepted is limited to

18. The conference and lodging will be free of charge, and

we will reimburse travel expenses. To apply for the

conference send:
