R&D Management Conference 2023 - "Responsible and Responsive Innovation for a Better Future", Seville, Spain from 17 to 21 June 2023. Deadline for Paper Submission extended to 13 February 2023.
We invite you to submit your research to explore the theme of "Fair and inclusive transition for SMEs in the digital era: Towards responsible management, entrepreneurship and innovation".
Proponents: Alessia Zoppelletto (University of Trento), Pier Luigi Giardino (University of Trento), Erica Santini (University of Trento) and Andrea Caputo (University of Trento & University of Lincoln).
Short description: The creation, success, longevity, and survival of SMEs are deeply linked with the effectiveness of internal and external decision-making processes. When entrepreneurs make decisions, they are especially influenced by their emotions, passions, values, beliefs, and cognition; at the same time with their decisions they craft the organization and support systems that will bound other decisions. There is great potential to improve scholarly understanding of these mechanisms in entrepreneurial decision-making, such as trust, rationality, intuition, conflicts, and spirituality. To explore promising research gaps, the track welcomes novel research approaches and innovative methods in entrepreneurial behaviour and decision-making, both conceptual and empirical.
Keywords: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises; Sustainability; Innovation; Transition; Business models
Publication Outlets: Every year the track is associated with several publication opportunities, including edited books or special issues, in journals such as the Journal of Management & Organization, Management Decision, Journal Enterprising Communities, etc. Further details will be communicated during the conference.
