ESU 2018 Conference and Doctoral Program

09th to 15th of September 2018

The Faculty of Economics and Sociology at the University of Lodz is happy to invite you to the ESU 2018 Conference and Doctoral Programme. We are looking forward to meeting you all from the 9th to the 15th of September 2018 in Łódź (Lodz), Poland.

During the week we will focus our attention on some core issues in entrepreneurship research, such as formulating interesting research questions, methodologies, the writing process, and publishing in academic journals. There will also be plenty of time for networking and social interaction.

The programme contains plenary sessions as well as group sessions. In order to make the doctoral programme as fruitful as possible, we divide participating PhD students into 3 groups:

  • Early stage group – students that haven’t started their PhD studies and PhD students in their first year of doctoral studies. Students in this group present their research proposal.
  • Work in progress group – PhD students that are in the middle of their PhD studies. Students in this group present their early phase research.
  • Mature group – PhD students that are in their end of the PhD process or PhDs that have finalized their thesis. Students in this group present their results papers.

The ESU PhD programme gives 6.0 ECTS.

Conference presentations are open to all attendants. The presentations will take place on Conference Day –Wednesday, 12th September 2018. Students from all groups, as well as conference participants, are requested to submit abstracts of their work.
