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 15th annual EIASM workshop, organized and hosted by Audencia Business School, 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), Bilbao (2017) and Larnaca (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 businesses and business families are more likely to pursue non-economic goals for their own satisfaction but also for the benefit of society. Indeed, values held by the family, family members, or family business are often catalysts for entrepreneurial behaviors, leading to the creation of new entities, new business models, responsible innovation, philanthropic endeavors, and responsible supply chain management, among others. 

The central theme of 15th EIASM Family Firm Management Research Workshop is ‘Family Entrepreneurship and Society’, but we welcome research papers and case studies with a focus on a broad range of thematic topics addressing the principles and practices of family entrepreneurship, family business, sustainability and responsibility. Potential submissions can address the following questions, but are not restricted to those:

  • What form of entrepreneurship is better suited to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? 
  • How does family involvement (in ownership, in management) contribute to sustainable development?
  • How do family relations influence the way (social) entrepreneurs deal with sustainable development issues?
  • How does family identity, family roles, and family values influence entrepreneurial behaviors and the impetus for responsible innovation?
  • How does family entrepreneurship in general motivate entrepreneurs (individuals, families, and family businesses) to behave more responsibly?
  • What are the reciprocal relationships between family, entrepreneurship and sustainable development?
  • How does the family culture influence how entrepreneurship contributes to sustainable development? 
  • How do family entrepreneurs enact their social identity as responsible leaders (on the individual, family, and family business levels)?
  • What role do family values play in pursuing sustainable development through entrepreneurship? 
  • What are intermediary mechanisms (e.g., emotional, motivational, identity-oriented, role-related, etc.) that influence the relation between family, entrepreneurial behaviors, family business, and sustainable development? 


In addition to featuring state of the art research papers and case studies, the workshop will offer keynotes. A touristic activity will follow the conference, Sunday morning.
