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:
The seminar series is a joint initiative by researchers from the Universities of St Andrews, Middlesex, Glasgow, and Delft. The organisers comprise: Dr Darja Reuschke (St Andrews); Prof Stephen Syrett (Middlesex); Prof Colin Mason (Glasgow); Prof Maarten van Ham (Delft University of Technology) and Prof Duncan Maclennan (St Andrews).
