DOCTORAL TRACK ON ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION

This EDEN doctoral seminar is the first seminar of a 'Doctoral Track'.

The Doctoral Track is a unique opportunity for doctoral students and junior researchers to follow a well-balanced Ph.D. programme in the areas of entrepreneurship and innovation.

The doctoral track includes three programmes:


1. EDEN Doctoral Seminar on Methods, Techniques and Theories in Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Brussels, December 3-7, 2007


The seminar introduces the participants to the methods, techniques and theories commonly used in their research area. It also offers possibilities for young researchers to get in contact with their peers, to explore new avenues of thinking, to learn collectively and to exchange ideas in a very active and stimulating way.

The emphasis is on interactive learning with peers about the practical aspects of setting up a research project

2. Doctoral Tutorial I on Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Tanaka Business School, Imeprial College London
November 17-18, 2008

This tutorial gives the participants the opportunity to present the intermediate results of their own research project/paper to leading peers.

3. Doctoral Tutorial II on Entrepreneurship and Innovation
October/November 2009
This tutorial gives the participants the opportunity to present their near-final research results of their own research project/paper to leading peers.

The Doctoral Track is a unique opportunity to share knowledge, discuss a variety of topics, refine your research questions and shape your research proposal. In addition the seminar and tutorial provide a excellent networking opportunity.

It is recommended that doctoral students participate in the full doctoral track, that is the EDEN seminar on methods, techniques and theories and the 2 tutorials. Participation to the doctoral tutorials is not limited to only doctoral students who attended the EDEN seminar, but will be opened to all doctoral students and young researchers.
