//Our Research

We define Entrepreneurship as acting upon opportunities and ideas and transforming them into value for others, where said value can be experienced as financial, cultural and/or social.

Our research aim is to understand entrepreneurial processes in order to enable, translate and transform entrepreneurial engagement and practice both in the learning space, and in the field.  We desire to directly (and constructively) impact and guide value creation efforts.

The research conducted in ERG – Entrepreneurship Research Group – at MORE is dedicated to understanding and fostering entrepreneurship not only among our students but also in society at large.  While at the core, research utilizes action research methodologies, our methodological approach also include other qualitative as well as mixed qual-quantitative studies.  Our theoretical and level of analysis spread is illustrated through the profiles of research group members.
