Recently, Pamela Nowell (alumni and current doctoral candidate at MORE) and Dr. Karen Williams Middleton presented papers at the European Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (www.ecsb.org) conference on Entrepreneurship Education, in Turku, Finland.
The conference focuses on ‘The Questions We Care About’ in entrepreneurship education emphasizing how we can improve our understanding and effective impact on entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial action through education. The conference is only in its second year, and attracts individuals engaged in delivering and researching about entrepreneurship education both within and outside institutional (university) environments.
Pamela delivered a plenary presentation to the entire conference delegation discussing team effectiveness within nascent ventures – research which has developed from her Masters Thesis she performed during the education. Karen presented a paper (co-authored by Mats Lundqvist and Pamela) discussing the importance of role expectations in helping to form both the individual’s entrepreneurial identity, and the identity of the new firm – to read more, see the research section of the website. 3E Conference 2014 in Turku.
