EMLYON Business School and the Netherlands Institute for Knowledge Intensive Entrepreneurship (NIKOS), University of Twente are pleased to invite you to the:

2nd Effectuation Research and Teaching Conference
3-4 June 2013, Lyon, France
(Just before the Babson BCERC conference, also in Lyon)

Conference theme:
Moving Forward: Chances and Challenges in Effectuation Research and Teaching
Research and teaching on effectuation, a logic used by expert entrepreneurs to solve problems in highly uncertain market environments, have substantially grown and progressed in the past decade. Along with the progress, effectuation research and teaching are facing important challenges now. The fruitfulness of future effectuation research, for example, depends on the conceptual clarity of the effectuation construct, its connection to other entrepreneurship constructs and the development of valid and reliable measurement instruments. Furthermore, evidence on teaching didactics and practices will have to show which are most effective for which groups of students.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together scholars interested in furthering the development of effectuation research and teaching and in emerging as a community. The conference will address issues related to both teaching and research in a workshop format that will be studious, but fun.
Professors Saras Sarasvathy (Darden) and Stuart Read (IMD) are our co-hosts and co-creators for this conference, engaged throughout the event, which will include the following topics:

Research:

  • Developing and clarifying the effectuation concept
  • Relation of effectuation to other entrepreneurship concepts
  • Measuring effectuation and its dimensions
  • New research inspired by effectuation research

Teaching:

  • Alternatives to the Business Plan
  • New teaching practices and materials
  • Effectiveness of teaching methods

Present your work
We invite participants with a research interest and/or with a teaching interest to present their work. For those with a primary interest in research, we require participants to present a working paper. This work will be discussed in small groups in dedicated workshop sessions. For those with a primary interest in teaching, we require participants to present a teaching practice they have used or are considering. We plan to have interactive sessions in which the various practices are shared between participants.

Paper submission
Please submit an academic paper, or extended abstract of at least seven pages. Papers can be fully developed, but we particularly stimulate the submission of working papers that can benefit from our interactive workshop format. We are planning a special issue and conference papers may be preselected for this.

Teaching orientation
Please submit at least a three-page description or design of a teaching practice that you have used or are planning to use. Please describe your experiences and list potential questions that you may have for discussing.

Both types of papers should be sent to the organizers of this conference, Philippe Silberzahn: silberzahn@em-lyon.com and Jeroen Kraaijenbrink: j.kraaijenbrink@utwente.nl before February 8th, 2013*.

Nord University Business School (former University of Nordland) and Nordland Research Institute are pleased to invite you to the

4th Effectuation Conference

June 6-7, 2016, Bodø, Norway

Research, Teaching & Practice

Starting with a story about “Curry in a Hurry”, there are many unique aspects to effectuation. One we treasure in particular is how the idea crosses the lines of research, teaching and practice while retaining its integrity and its usefulness. We hope to embody that aspect, bringing together intellectually curious people to dive deep within the lines, blur the lines or maybe even remove the lines.

Present your work

We invite participants with a research interest, a teaching interest and/or an interest in practical application to present their work. For those with a primary interest in research, we require participants to present a working paper. This work will be discussed in small groups in dedicated workshop sessions. For those with a primary interest in teaching and/or practice, we require participants to present a description or design of a practice they have used or are considering. We plan to have interactive sessions in which the various practices are shared between participants.

Paper submission

Research orientation: please submit an academic paper, or extended abstract of at least 7 pages, but with a maximum of 30 pages. Papers can be fully developed, but we particularly encourage the submission of working papers that can benefit from our interactive workshop format.

Teaching and practice orientation: please submit at least a three-page description or design of a practice you have used or are planning to use. That could be a teaching practice, a tool, an intervention design or a (consulting-) case. Please describe your experiences and list potential questions that you may have for discussing.

Both types of papers should be sent to the organizers at: effectuation@uin.no. Please indicate the track you are submitting for (Practice/Teaching or Research).

Information & registration

The registration fee for the conference is € 220 (incl. VAT). To keep the interactive and community atmosphere of the previous conference, participation will be limited to 50 participants.
