BACKGROUND

European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) is an international network for management research and teaching that includes more than 50.000 management scientists from all over the world. EIASM's mission is to enhance high quality in research and doctoral studies in management and related disciplines. The 14th annual EIASM Workshop, organized and hosted by UCLan Cyprus, continues the tradition of successful academic events that have been created at the previous meetings in Jönköping (2005, 2007 & 2012), Nice (2006), Naples (2008), Hasselt (2009), Barcelona, (2010), Witten (2011), Helsinki (2013), Bergamo (2014), Lyon (2015), Zwolle (2016) and Bilbao (2017). The workshop will provide great opportunities for researchers to share their experiences, receive high value feedback on each other’s work and to form new research collaborations. The Workshop will consist of plenary sessions and research paper presentations.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Family leaders are protagonists in supporting entrepreneurship in family businesses and business families.

They are institutional entrepreneurs with the commitment to facilitate the renewal of the business model and governance structures which is essential for sustainable family business success and prosperity for all stakeholders.

The central theme of 14th EIASM Family Firm Management Research Workshop is ‘Entrepreneurial Families across Generations’, but we welcome research papers and case studies with a focus on broad range of thematic topics addressing the principles and practices of entrepreneurialism, not restricted to:
  • Entrepreneurial family firms across stages of development and generations

  • Family leadership and sustainable entrepreneurship
  • Family values and family business entrepreneurship
  • Financing family entrepreneurship
  • Socio-emotional dimensions of family entrepreneurship across generations
  • Family dynasties and governance

In addition to featuring state of the art research papers and case studies, the workshop will offer keynotes and enterprise forum. An optional cultural tour of Cyprus will follow after the conference .
