  • 1.  Call for papers for the Strategy, Entrepreneurship & Innovation (SEI) Faculty Workshop (6 November 2020, University of Bologna)

    Dear Colleague,
    We would like to invite paper submissions for the annual European Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Innovation (SEI) Faculty Workshop to be held on Friday November 6, 2020 at the University of Bologna, Italy.
    The workshop builds upon the success of previous SEI Faculty Workshops and aims to provide a forum for discussion to researchers interested in preparing their papers for submission to top journals. 
    The SEI Consortium is an initiative of faculty from Europe's leading business schools, including Bocconi University, Copenhagen Business School, ETH Zurich, HEC Paris, Imperial College London, and London Business School, to help advance the research frontier and stimulate the academic labour market. To this end, it supports an annual Faculty Workshop and a Doctoral Consortium. For these events, it brings together faculty from a broad range of European institutions, including those mentioned above, as well as from Católica Lisbon, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, ESMT Berlin, Frankfurt School of Management and Finance, IE Business School, IESE Business School, KU Leuven, SKEMA Business School, TUM School of Management, University of Bath, University of Bologna, and many others.
    The purpose of the Faculty Workshop is to bring together top scholars from European institutions whose research focuses on strategy, entrepreneurship and innovation. It provides a venue to present work in development and receive feedback from leading scholars in the field, including several members of editorial boards of journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, Management Science, Organization Science, Research Policy, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and Strategic Management Journal, among others. Several papers presented in the past workshops have later been published in those outlets. There will be plenty of opportunities for informal discussion and networking outside the formal presentations, including coffee breaks, meals, and a pre-workshop group dinner on November 5. 
    Paper Format

    We are looking for about six to eight papers of great potential. Each paper will have about 45 minutes for presentation and discussion. All participants are expected to read the papers and contribute to the discussion. The submitted papers should contribute to one or more of the following broad areas: strategy, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Since the aim of this developmental workshop is to help prepare articles for submission to top journals, papers must not already be under review, accepted, or forthcoming. Preference will be given to papers by junior faculty.
    The deadline for the submission of papers is August 10, 2020. Please submit your paper with names and affiliations on the first page, separate from the paper itself. Submissions should be sent to sei2020@unibo.it stating "Faculty Workshop" in the subject. A selection committee will blind review and rank all papers. The top scoring papers will be selected for inclusion in the program. No feedback will be provided at this stage. We aim to inform authors of accepted papers by September 10, 2020.
    Transportation, lodging and meals
The hosting institution, UNIBO, will arrange and pay for travel and one to two night's stay for all invited speakers. There is no registration fee for the workshop. If the current Coronavirus crisis is not fully resolved, the Faculty Workshop will go online.
