Location: Strathlcyde Business School, 199 Cathedral Street, Cathedral Wing, CW602

The Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship is delighted to once again be hosting our regular gathering of the Scottish entrepreneurship research community. This year’s Scottish Entrepreneurship Research Seminar (SERS) will take place on May 8 and is planned to include: Robert Chia (University of Glasgow); Karen Verduijn (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam); Seonaidh McDonald (Robert Gordon University); Niall Mackenzie (University of Glasgow) and the Hunter Centre’s very own Nigel Lockett, Abdullah Gok, Matt Hannon and Marisa Smith. The event will cover a wide range of perspectives on entrepreneurship and provide plenty of time for discussion. It will be followed by a networking event to offer participants the opportunity to meet one another.

A doctoral day will follow on May 9. Whilst this is open to everyone to attend, PhD students from across Scotland are welcome to register. The day is designed to offer PhDs involved in entrepreneurship research guidance about how to complete to deliver a high quality PhD within a manageable timeframe. Guest speakers include Karen Verduijn (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), Stephen Knox (Scottish Government) and Seonaidh McDonald (Robert Gordon University), as well as the Hunter Centre’s Matt Hannon, Bernd Wurth and Abdullah Gok. Participants will learn amongst other things: (1) PhD life-hacks; (2) improving the chances of getting papers accepted in journals; (3) how to avoid writer’s block and (4) gaps in the entrepreneurial research landscape that need filling. There will also be the chance to see presentations from some of the Hunter Centre’s PhD community and a chance to network.

Please note that when signing up you need to choose to register for Day 1, Day 2 or both.
