This event is now FULL

Universities have long presented a rich and interesting setting to learn about management issues. A large body of research has shed light on processes including technology commercialization, academic entrepreneurship and university-industry collaboration. An important part of this work has documented and investigated empirical phenomena and relationships. Other authors have deployed data and insights from studying universities to make more general theoretical contributions to the management literature, in areas such as entrepreneurship, teamwork, creativity, decision-making, institutional change and strategy. In this workshop, we aim to provide an opportunity for participants to discuss and learn about recent work in both these areas. We hope the workshop will provide a springboard for future research on the changing nature of universities and their role in the economic system, informing public policy and university management.

Participants include Maryann Feldman (AIM Visiting International Fellow, University of North Carolina), Ammon Salter (UK~IRC Research Director), Markus Perkmann (Imperial College London), Simcha Jong (UCL) and Vangelis Souitaris (Cass).

This event was previously advertised in March and there are a limited number of places available. To apply please contact events@ukirc.ac.uk. The closing date for applications is 26th September at 5pm.

Early career scholars are especially welcome to participate and the workshop will provide insights in publishing research on this topic in leading journals by leading scholars in the area.?
