Micro-Entrepreneurship: New research avenues and collaboration. Presented by Matti Muhos, University of Oulu, Finland
This workshop aims at establishing a platform for new research avenues for micro-enterprise focused researchers and practitioners. In this workshop, we will explore new avenues for applying micro-entrepreneurship research. The workshop includes a presentation by adjunct professor Matti Muhos and inspirational introductions from selected researchers. The workshop will discuss the key challenges, solutions and empirically-based examples of how academic research meets practice in micro-entrepreneurship. We invite participants interested in micro-enterprises and micro-entrepreneurs facing new European and global challenges to attend. Each participant will be asked to briefly present his / her research approaches to and experiences of conducting micro-entrepreneurship research. Discussions during the workshop seek to find new avenues for European micro-entrepreneurship research. From the workshop we hope to promote new research collaborations and build international, multi-disciplinary research consortiums.
