LaRGE, EM Strasbourg Research Center and Sciences Po Strasbourg are organizing the 13th Congress of the Academy of Entrepreneurship and Innovation (AEI 2023) on "Tomorrow's entrepreneurship: New issues, new challenges?". This event will be held in Strasbourg on June 28-30, 2023.




The AEI 2023 congress will aim at confronting points of view in order to better understand the evolution of entrepreneurship currently at work in society. The impact of new forms of entrepreneurship and new entrepreneurial processes will be explored. For example, works dealing with effectual strategies and uncertainty management, new competitive rhythms and time management, but also the impact of environmental constraints on entrepreneurial strategies, will allow us to address the challenges of tomorrow's entrepreneurship.

The AEI 2023 conference is open to all works related to the fields of entrepreneurship, SMEs and innovation.

The 2023 edition organized in Strasbourg is structured around:

  • thematic sessions (or tracks) that allow for in-depth treatment of specific topics, and are organized around specific calls;
  • Varia sessions, which host work that does not fit into the specific sessions.

The 13th Congress will continue the Academy's effort to open up internationally by giving a large place to colleagues from non-French speaking countries. Submissions may be made in English or in French.

Interested researchers are invited to submit their paper proposal in one of the 20 thematic sessions or in varia.
