We are delighted to launch the call for papers of the third edition of the Conducting Experiments in Entrepreneurship Research Workshop. We would be very happy to welcome your work to the workshop and connect with you to discuss your work.

Please see below the detailed call for papers. You can also visit the website to stay up to date with more news about this edition. Feel free to share this information with anyone you think may be interested as well.


In this paper development workshop (PDW), we aim to support scholars who are working on experiments as a methodology in entrepreneurship research.

Although studies using experimental designs are a great way to establish causal relations, designing, conducting, and analyzing experiments is not an easy undertaking. To support early career scholars in this endeavor, the University of Groningen Centre of Entrepreneurship (UGCE) organizes a paper development workshop in partnership with the European Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ECSB). In this workshop, we aim to support and bring together early career scholars who are working with experimental designs as a methodology in entrepreneurship research.

The workshop consists of two main activities: 1) Paper presentations, discussions and lively interactions with peers and experts (in breakout rooms); and 2) Plenary keynote sessions, where experts will address challenges in designing and conducting research using experimental designs.

For whom

The workshop is targeted at PhD candidates, postdocs, and (early-stage) Assistant Professors working on studies in entrepreneurship research using experimental designs. The submissions can be co-authored (with senior scholars), but the leading author and potential participant of the workshop should be an early-career researcher.


To apply for participation in the workshop, please submit your work until January 7, 2022.

We welcome two types of submissions:

  • Full working paper: studies that have been fully carried out and the paper is at the writing stage
  • Design stage papers: studies at the methodological design phase
