We heard from Anaïs Hamelin, a member of the congress organizing committee:

“I was delighted to welcome participants to Strasbourg for the 13th AEI congress. This year's event was rich from a scientific perspective, with nearly 120 papers presented by professors and doctoral students. I sincerely thank the people in charge of the various tracks, whose commitment over more than a year made it possible to select and lead the many themed sessions making up the congress.

I would like to thank all participants for their attendance and participation in the themed sessions. Their presence contributed greatly to the quality of the discussions and enabled the authors to leave with ideas for improving their articles.

Hats off to Dimo Dimov for his inspiring conference. I'd also like to thank the members of the community who got involved in the various events organized during the congress.

I would also like to send special thanks to

  • AEI for the opportunity to organize the conference;
  • the University of Strasbourg for enabling us to organize events of this magnitude; 
  • Sciences Po Strasbourg for hosting the congress on its premises;
  • EMSBS for its involvement in the organization—namely, the Research Office team;
  • the members of my research center, LaRGE, who helped to organize the many highlights; 
  • our partners: the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg, FEDER, and the Grand Est Region through R2E (a network of entrepreneurship research and expertise that brings together entrepreneurship researchers from the Grand Est region and beyond), the Pépite hubs Etena (Strasbourg) and Peel (Lorraine) as well as Banque Populaire Alsace Lorraine Champagne.”
