5th Workshop on Business Ethics 2019

The rise of right-wing populism, climate change, or new technologies are only a few of the grand new challenges we are faced with as a society and for whose solution management and business ought to contribute.

The 5th Workshop on Business Ethics seeks contributions which address such challenges and other ‘hot topics’ at the intersection of business ethics, management and corporate responsibility. The workshop will take place on May 20-21, 2019 at EIASM in Brussels.

In the past years, this workshop has been appreciated for its rather small size and its intimate set-up and friendly atmosphere. It provides an ideal space to discuss and develop papers at an early stage and to focus on quality rather than quantity. It provides ample time for thorough discussion during paper sessions, as well as for networking and personal conversations beyond the formal program over the two days. It reaches out to a diverse international audience and provides a platform both for established as well as emerging and junior researchers. Facilitating an exchange between established scholars and young researchers is of particular concern to this workshop.

All topics in the domain of business ethics and corporate responsibility are welcome.

The four key themes of the 2019 workshop are as follows:

  1. Business ethics in troubled times;
  2. Private governance: friend or foe?;
  3. New technologies and ethics;
  4. Ethical finance (visit our workshop website to learn more about these topics).

The deadline to submit extended abstracts/short papers (2,000-3,000 words) is: January 10, 2019

Report on RENT 2018 & Info on RENT 2019

RENT (Research in Entrepreneurship and Small Business) is an annual conference organised jointly by ECSB ( and EIASM (


The main theme of the recent RENT XXXII 2018 Conference was:

“Sustainable entrepreneurship: A win-win strategy for the future”

Organized by ECSB, EIASM, and the local organizers:
Cristina Díaz-García, Ángela González-Moreno & Francisco Sáez-Martínez – Universidad de Castilla La Mancha (UCLM)



Attracting over 250 participants, the RENT 2018 Conference gave rise to presentations of more than 180 papers and posters. Following a pre-conference day built around doctoral workshops, ECSB professional development workshops, and the 2018 ECSB Policy Forum focusing on Entrepreneurial activities in the Circular Economy, RENT XXXII veritably shook the walls of the Conference Center of Toledo with these multiple animated reflections and exchanges of research related to the ecosystem of entrepreneurship.

The main goal of the conference was to focus on how the entrepreneurial ecosystem and specific internal resources and capabilities can help companies and organizations recognize and implement sustainable opportunities that enable them to increase their competitiveness and, at the same time, lay the foundations for a more sustainable future.

The opening plenary, a dialogue between Mariana Boadella (Entrepreneur, Doctor of biological and veterinarian sciences, Founder of SABIOTEC Spin-off – a particularly innovative, responsible and successful start-up in the field of medical diagnostics of wildlife) and Prof. Alberto Aragon-Correa (Professor at University of Granada, and Honorary Professor at University of Surrey), paved the way for positive synergies and the creative dynamic of multiple projects and thought-provoking reflections. Numerous presentations followed to enrich the collective knowledge of the RENT network. We are looking forward to meeting again in Berlin in 2019 and to embracing uncertainty as well as viewing entrepreneurship as a key capability for the 21st century!

The Scientific Committee nominated the best paper written and presented by a junior researcher at the RENT XXXII Conference. This award was named in honour of Professor José Maria Veciana (ECSB’s First Fellow and long-time member who was a dedicated supporter of junior researchers throughout his professional life). To be eligible for this award, the paper must be authored by a student, PhD student or junior researcher, who has finalised his/her PhD thesis within the past five years preceding the conference. Only papers presented at the RENT conference are considered for this award – preferably single-authored or co-authored with junior researchers; in the case of co-authorship with a senior researcher, the junior researcher must be the lead author and sole presenter of the paper.

The winner is:

Vivek Kumar Sundriyal
(Sten K Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship, Lund University, Sweden)

for the paper
“Good Stock from the Iron Cage: Mobility, Entry Size and Returns to Entrepreneurship in Scientists & Engineers”


In appreciation of the important role of the Reviewers:  

Renata Osowska (Edinburgh Napier University, UK)
John Kitching (Kingston University, UK)
Pekka Stenholm (University of Turku, Finland)

have been nominated the Best Reviewers for this year's RENT event.

Report on the 6th Workshop on Managing Arts and Cultural Organizations

The 6th EIASM Workshop on Managing Arts and Cultural Organisations was held at the Oxford Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, 30 November – 1 December 2018. 

Under the auspices of EIASM, the organizers Pegram Harrison (University of Oxford) and Luca Zan (Università di Bologna) welcomed 30 participants from all over Europe, as well as from North America, Israel and Australasia. Some were familiar as delegates at previous workshops whereas others were welcome newcomers to the group.

The selection of Oxford as a venue affirms a deepening relationship (and a Memorandum of Understanding) between the Business Schools at Oxford and Bologna (called “OxBo”) to collaborate on academic activities relating to management and the humanities, including the management of arts, heritage and cultural institutions.  Both ancient Universities are heritage sites themselves, and each provides exceptional opportunities to study the intersection of management and humanities, especially relating to heritage, and to convene scholars working on related fields.
