    Dear colleagues

    An exciting opportunity to contribute to an upcoming special issue in the field of internationalisation and entrepreneurial processes. The overarching theme of this special issue is "Boundary Spanning for Fostering Regional Growth Across Varied Contexts." and it aims to bring together cutting-edge research that explores the various facets of this dynamic interplay. Whether you are an established scholar or an emerging researcher, we invite you to submit your work to this special issue to contribute to our collective understanding of this vital area of study.

    Key themes of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • International entrepreneurship in diverse contexts
    • The role of technology and innovation in internationalisation
    • SME internationalisation strategies
    • Entrepreneurial networks and their impact on regional growth
    • Risk analysis and management in the context of internationalisation
    • Internationalisation and sustainability

    We encourage submissions that offer theoretical insights, empirical research, and practical implications. The goal is to create a comprehensive body of knowledge that informs and influences the practice of internationalisation and entrepreneurial processes in the context of regional growth.

    Additionally, I would like to draw your attention to the "Paper Development Workshop (PDW)" at the 50th Academy of International Business-UK and Ireland Chapter conference, which will be held on 4th - 6th April 2024, at Aston Business School in Birmingham, United Kingdom (More details: https://www.aib-uki.org/conference.html).

    The PDW is a unique opportunity for all interested contributors to present their work, regardless of its stage of development, for discussion and feedback. While participation in the PDW is not a guarantee of acceptance of the paper for the special issue, it provides an invaluable platform for refining your research and engaging with fellow scholars in the field.
