HTSF Conference 2015
In 2015, on behalf of the academic conference committee Peter van der Sijde (VU-Amsterdam), Gary Cook (University of Liverpool) and Aard Groen (University of Groningen & University of Twente) and in close collaboration with SOM research institute of the Faculty of Economics and Business, the University of Groningen Centre of Entrepreneurship (UGCE) hosted the High-Tech Small Firm conference.
In the HTSF conference researchers on knowledge (technology and other knowledge) intensive entrepreneurship convene to discuss the current state of research on technology based entrepreneurship in small and large, new and old firms. Special topic in 2015 was about the ways to organize research exchange in the HTSF technology based entrepreneurship community. Several (associate-) editors of journals in our field were present. Moreover the conference included a special a three day doctoral program (starting on June 3) for young researchers studying the next generation of technology (and science) based entrepreneurship research.
This conference featured key notes on technology based entrepreneurship research, teaching and support, both from academic speakers (a.o. Dr. Andreas Rauch, U.Groningen, prof. Steven Walsh, UNew Mexico/UT) as well as from practice and policy. Several editors of entrepreneurship and innovation journals attended the conference (e.g. Technovation, Creativity and Innovation Management, Technology Forecasting and Social Change), and there will be good opportunities to discuss your work with them.
NIKOS (The Netherlands Institute for Knowledge Intensive Entrepreneurship), Venturelab International and the hosting institute UGCE (University of Groningen Centre of Entrepreneurship) sponsored this event.
