    Digital innovation and sustainability. New technologies related to digitalization and big data are enablers of entirely new business models and strategies with a profound impact on business and society. Research is needed to understand how digital innovation can be managed to generate a positive impact on business and society, for instance by enabling the transition to a more circular economy and sustainable use of natural resources.
    Entrepreneurship education and student entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurial skills and mindsets are of increasing importance for adapting to a rapidly changing world and take-action to deal with challenges in business and society. More research is needed on how to stimulate and educate individuals to become entrepreneurs, innovators and change agents both independently and within existing organizations.
    Mental health and wellbeing. Research by economists and management scholars has traditionally concerned itself with the economic realm. Greater interest, however, is being paid to psychological outcomes such as wellbeing and mental health, and to mental disorders. Papers delving into any aspects of these themes related to entrepreneurship, innovation management, and strategy are welcome.
    University-industry collaboration. Bringing scientific inventions and knowledge into practical application in society is an important but challenging process with potentially high impact on business and society. Research is needed to gain a better understanding of different pathways of technology transfer and effective models of interaction between academic research and business.
