Research Meeting - June 2018

As part of IGL2018 Global Conference, the Innovation Growth Lab (IGL) hosted a research meeting on 12 June 2018 at the Harvard Business School.

The IGL2018 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. 


We invited researchers to submit abstracts for research to be presented at the IGL2018 Research Meeting. We welcomed empirical research that provides evidence on the best approaches to increase innovation, support high-growth entrepreneurship and accelerate business growth. More specifically, we encouraged abstracts on design-stage, ongoing and completed randomised controlled trials, as well as abstracts for review papers synthesising evidence or drawing on generalizable lessons learned.

The IGL Research Meeting serves as an opportunity to present and receive feedback on early-stage as well as ongoing or completed work.

We invited submissions of abstracts on the following themes:

  • Science and innovation
  • Entrepreneurship and business growth

The call for abstracts is now closed.
