Celebrating 10 years of

Effectuation Conferences 

(just before the XXXIII. RENT Conference in Berlin)

ESCP Europe, Heubnerweg 8-10, 14059 Berlin
 
Sunday, November 24th – Tuesday 26th

About the conference 

It will have been 10 years since the first Effectuation Conference was held in a decommissioned church at the Vlerick Business School in the tiny city of Ghent, Belgium. To celebrate, the 2019 Effectuation Conference will be coming back to Europe.

 

The Jean-Baptiste Say Institute for Entrepreneurship of ESCP Europe will be hosting the 2019 Effectuation Conference in Berlin in ESCP Europe's 200th anniversary year as a pre-conference to the XXXIII. RENT Conference. The Effectuation Conference format will offer both plenary sessions as well as small group research and practice “pods”.

Call for papers

We invite participants with a research interest, a teaching interest and/or an interest in practical application to present their work. For those with a primary interest in research, we require participants to present a working paper. This work will be discussed in small groups in dedicated workshop sessions. For those with a primary interest in teaching and/or practice, we require participants to present a description or design of a practice they have used or are considering. We plan to have interactive sessions in which the various practices are shared between participants.

Paper submission

1. Research orientation: Please submit an academic paper, or extended abstract of at least seven pages, but maximum 30 pages. Papers can be fully developed, but we particularly encourage the submission of working papers that can benefit from our interactive workshop format.

 

2. Teaching and practice orientation: Please submit at least a three-page description or design of a practice you have used or are planning to use. That could be a teaching practice, a tool, an intervention design or a (consulting) case. Please describe your experiences and list potential questions that you may have for discussing.
