    To be held at

    The University of Edinburgh Business School,

    June 3-4, 2019

    In response to the rapidly growing interest in social entrepreneurship research as a continuously developing domain with high importance for theory and practice, we are very pleased to announce the Edinburgh Social Entrepreneurship Conference 2019. This event offers a valuable opportunity for a limited number of PhD students and early-career academics to discuss and develop their ongoing work in traditional paper presentation sessions with distinguished experts in the social entrepreneurship field. Scholars who are more advanced in their careers are also very welcome to attend.

    The paper presentation sessions will involve senior scholars with a track record of multiple publications in, and editorial/editorial board appointments with, our leading journals. Authors will also receive feedback from peers with similar research interests. Additional panel sessions are devoted to improving our understanding of how to publish in leading journals and to discuss the future directions of social entrepreneurship research.

    Among the confirmed discussants: Prof Benson Honig (McMaster University); Dr Helen Haugh (University of Cambridge); Prof Mairi Maclean (University of Bath); Prof Frank Moulaert (KU Leuven); and Dr Ben Spigel (University of Edinburgh). Further discussants TBC.

    The deadline for submission of abstracts is 11.59pm, May 24, 2019.

    Logistics and Support to Participants

    The conference will consist of around 50 doctoral students, early career faculty and senior colleagues who will discuss papers and offer developmental advice. The atmosphere will be collegial, interactive and informal, but centred on progressing working papers with the objective of getting them published in leading journals.

    Thanks to the generous support of The University of Edinburgh Business School and the ECSB, there is no conference fee, and no charge for lunch, coffee breaks, and closing wine reception. There will be an optional conference dinner for around £35 (payable in advance upon registration).

    Participants must make their own travel arrangements and pay for accommodation - we will provide recommendations of where to stay. Participants are expected to attend the whole conference: registration is on the 3rd of June at 14.00pm; formal programme concludes on the 4th of June at 6pm with a wine reception. If participants wish to extend their trip to enjoy Edinburgh and the surrounding area, we can help with advice and arrangements.
