Late registration deadline October 29th, 2010
Conference: November 11th to 12th, 2010
Location: Izmir University of Economics

Innovation and entrepreneurship have been tackled in various depths until now. However, there are some issues that are still at their nascent stages of analysis.

We cover these under three main headings. First of all, despite the many definitions of entrepreneurship, the link between that and innovation is not clear at all. For example, spin-off entrepreneurship in the private sector along with the university spin-offs are yet to be comprehended with clarity. Hence the very definition of entrepreneurship and its link with innovative behavior need to be analyzed both theoretically and from an empirical point of view. The second topic that we like our workshop to focus on is particularly the microeconomics of entrepreneurship that details the entry barriers and market conditions that foster or inhibit entrepreneurship and innovation, such needs to be analyzed both theoretically and empirically by taking into account the specific industry detail. In connection with this, finally we believe geographical space and its link to innovation and entrepreneurship also need to be probed in further detail. Hence our conference is planned to have an unprecedented approach to the issues of entrepreneurship and innovation.
