    ESRC Seminar Series: Entrepreneurship in Homes and Neighbourhoods

    Commissioned by the Economic and Social Research Council 

    This seminar series aims to advance knowledge on the roles of homes and neighbourhoods in firm formation and entrepreneurship and inform/influence enterprise and housing policy and practice. By gaining a better understanding of the significance of the embeddedness of entrepreneurship in homes and neighbourhoods we seek to critically advance the view that entrepreneurial activities are local assets that require more attention in enterprise, neighbourhood and housing research and policy, and open up new perspectives for economic growth.

    This series will comprise three two-day and three one-day seminars over the course of three years:

    • Seminar 1: Understanding connections between entrepreneurship, home and neighbourhoods, 23rd and 24th January 2014, University of Glasgow, Glasgow. Link to programme
