IGL Winter Research Meeting - December 2017

The Innovation Growth Lab (IGL) is holding the IGL Winter Research Meeting on Wednesday, 6 December 2017, at the World Bank in Washington, D.C.

The IGL Winter Research Meeting is a forum for researchers to discuss design-stage, ongoing and completed academic research that uses experimental methods to improve our understanding of the drivers of innovation, entrepreneurship and growth, and potential interventions to accelerate these. 

Call for Abstracts

We are inviting researchers to submit abstracts for research to be presented at the IGL Winter Research Meeting 2017. We welcome empirical research that provides evidence on the best approaches to increase innovation, support high-growth entrepreneurship and accelerate business growth.

More specifically, we encourage abstracts on design-stage, ongoing and completed randomised controlled trials (RCTs), as well as abstracts for review papers synthesising evidence or drawing on generalizable lessons learned.

Research at different stages of completion will be accepted for the meeting. The IGL Research Meeting serves as an opportunity to present and receive feedback on early-stage as well as ongoing or completed work.

We invite submissions of abstracts on the following themes: 

  • Science and innovation
  • Entrepreneurship and business growth

Submission deadline: Monday 2 October, 2017

Please note we will also be holding a PhD Workshop on the day before the Meeting, Tuesday 5 December. Should you be interested in attending, please get in touch with us at innovationgrowthlab@nesta.org.uk.

The Winter Research Meeting is taking place on the day prior to the Empirical Management Conference, which may also be of interest to attendees.
