International Congress on Entrepreneurial Motivation (ICEM)

Entrepreneurship is a perennial phenomenon in research. In the fast-moving world we live in, it has a significant influence on key aspects of economic life such as the economic growth, the labor market, and the generation of disruptive knowledge through innovation. Not surprisingly, it has been approached in research from different perspectives, contributing to the proliferation of several exciting lines of research that have revealed a variety of unknowns in constant evolution. The International Congress on Entrepreneurial Motivation aims to be a meeting point where the scientific community discusses in a multidisciplinary way about the most novel aspects related to entrepreneurship – e.g., from digital entrepreneurship to gender and sustainability.
