Letter of the President

Dear EURAM members, friends and colleagues,

First of all, I would like to thank Kathrin Moeslein as she was able to successfully lead our society during the recent pandemic crisis. Despite several potential threats, she was able to keep our society on track, for example by moving quickly and effectively our conference from a face-to-face to a virtual one. As this was impossible to do without the collective effort of several people, I want to thank also all EURAM members and officers who supported Kathrin in addressing these issues: i.e., the members of the executive committee, the SIG leaders, the track chairs, the country representatives, the conference organisers, all EURAM members who actively participated to the life of our society (e.g., by submitting and reviewing papers, chairing and attending conference sessions) and the officers. I am grateful to all of you for what you have done to preserve and to develop our society during the recent pandemic crisis.

As a loyal and engaged member of EURAM, I am very happy to serve our society as its President for the next three years. It is a privilege and an honor to work with you all to design its future. In the past, I played several roles within EURAM. Initially, I was the corporate governance track co-chair for several years, and later the corporate governance SIG chair and the national representative for Italy. After I have been appointed as EURAM President, I started to invest my time to improve my knowledge of the society, e.g., reading website and documents, meeting vice presidents and officers, and analysing data on several aspects. It was an interesting and rewarding investment, that allowed me to learn a lot about EURAM current and future challenges. EURAM is a relatively young organisation – we have been founded in 2001 – that has a bright future and several opportunities. After the difficult period of the pandemic crisis, we can relaunch our society building on the great success of the last conference, that was superbly organised by the ZHAW School of Management in Winterthur, and on the energies and skills of our 1,500 standing members, coming from several European and not European countries.

The next conference hosted by Trinity College in Dublin will be a great event for all current and new EURAM members. Our SIGs and tracks chairs are already engaged to promote interactive and interesting sessions. We have just launched the first call for papers, and now we are looking forward to receive a large number of submissions. As you can see in the conference website, the conference will include 13 SIGs plus the general conference:


The large number of tracks (113) and symposia (38) accepted have exceeded our expectations and suggest that the next conference will be crowded and successful! It will be another great opportunity to meet, present, discuss, learn and share some time together. I am looking forward to meeting all of you in Dublin, 14-16 June 2023!

After the publication of the call for papers for the 2023 EURAM conference, we are close to launch the next doctoral colloquium. This event will be held just before the conference, i.e., 12-13 June 2023. However, we have already published the 14th EURAM Early Career Colloquium (EECC), that will be held 13-15 March 2023 with the support of the Gdansk University of Technology. More information is available at the following link:


I sincerely hope these two events will help PhD students and untenured colleagues to strengthen their research skills and professional network, so to support the attainment of their professional goals.

In September, I had my first meeting with both the executive committee and the board of directors of EURAM. Both meetings were very highly productive and interesting, and I am very happy and honored to work with such expert and passionate colleagues. Like any other academic society, EURAM has some challenges to address in the coming years, e.g., how to design and organise conferences (i.e., virtual, in person or hybrid), how to strengthen research and communication skills of PhD students and untenured scholars, how to positively impact policy makers and practitioners, how to reduce its footprint. I am confident that the EURAM leadership team will be able to address all these challenges and develop a bright future for our society.

I am looking forward to meeting you all soon!

Video Video explaining the relevance off strategic decision-making skills for technology- startups, combining theoretical explanations with interviews with real technology- entrepreneurs

I personally was always fascinated by the success, but also by the lack of success of small startups, especially in the technology sector. As I am pretty well on my way to implement a study on the relevance of innovative entrepreneurial capacities for these technology startups, I encountered two recent studies: Cantamessa et al., 2018, and Ghosh, 2020.

Both studies highlighted, that especially the lack of success could be attributed to not possessing the right business skills to design, and especially redesign innovative business models. As I developed a assessment system, based on the Effectuation framework and Design Thinking skills, I produced a movie. The key target of this movie is to support team members in the technology startups, to gain insights into underlying scientific understandings of these two frameworks. But especially, to conduct an entrepreneurial strength-and weaknesses analysis, develop developmental goals to increase an entrepreneurial effectiveness.

For all those of you, interested in the training, development or even enhancements of entrepreneurial capacities in designing and implementing innovative business models, here’s a link to this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyYsIMDBcDA&t

Feel free to share this link, under all those who might be interested. This could be business coaches/ incubators, researchers/scholars in the field of inoperative entrepreneurship or entrepreneurs, like small technology startups.

The Palgrave Handbook of Managing Family Business Groups

Family business groups are ubiquitous, influential, and play a major role in national economies. While much of the current research around this topic has so far focused on emerging economies, more knowledge is needed on family business groups in developed economies; specifically, how they innovate, strategize, govern, and grow. Offering a comprehensive and global perspective on family business groups, this Handbook comprises international contributions from leading experts. Split into five sections, it covers strategy and business

transformation; innovation strategies; management and governance; and new avenues for research on FBGs including the issues of sustainability and cultural

alignment. An important resource for students and researchers of family business, strategy and management, this Handbook signals the emergence of the family business group phenomenon and solidifies research in this evolving area of study.

A new book for undergraduate and graduate courses about entrepreneurship in South America has been published.

Entrepreneurship in South America: Context, Diversity, Constraints, Opportunities and Prospects reveals a variety of issues facing entrepreneurs, SMEs, and entrepreneurship development across South America. The authors recognize that when it comes to entrepreneurship, not one size fits all. Therefore, this book has been designed to help business students understand the context of the enterprise. It highlights how countries differ in their scope of entrepreneurship, and how entrepreneurs are impacted by these differences. Each chapter is dedicated to a respective country and describes the status quo, challenges and prospects for entrepreneurship there. Specifically, the book helps students understand the nature of entrepreneurship in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam, Uruguay and Venezuela.

The Editorial Board of Vezetéstudomány – Budapest Managament Review is delighted to announce that the journal is now listed in the Academic Journal with one star.

The Academic Journal Guide is curated by the Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS). As noted on its publisher’s page, the purpose of AJG is to assist researchers to make informed judgements about the outlets they may wish to publish in. It provides details on a wide range of journals, stretching across fields that are either central or salient to business and management studies; in other words, it aims to encompass a broad set of journals in which business and management academics may seek to publish their research. The AJG’s ratings are based upon peer review, editorial and expert judgements following the evaluation of many hundreds of publications and is informed by statistical information relating to citation.

The AJG is distinctive in that, unlike other journal ratings, it is not based purely on a weighted average of journal metrics. Rather, the AJG is informed by metrics. The ratings of journals reflect the outcomes of consultations carried out by the subject experts of the Scientific Committee with expert peers and scholarly associations as to the relative standing of journals in each subject area.

Vezetéstudomány – Budapest Management Review is committed by keeping the high editorial standards of international publishing practice. Articles published in this journal are widely read and quoted by the Hungarian management academic community and beyond. There are scholars of various management fields among its readers, authors, reviewers, and editors. If you wish to publish your original research in this journal in English or in Hungarian, please, visit our site and prepare your manuscript in accordance with author guidelines.

We are very pleased to announce the creation of “Centre for Research and Co-creation in Innovation and Sustainable Indigenous Business” at Faculté des sciences de l’administration, Université Laval, Canada.

The long-term well-being of Indigenous communities depends on economic self-sufficiency, innovation, and business development grounded in traditional knowledge and Indigenous worldviews and values. However, the advancement of innovation and sustainable development in Indigenous communities has been limited by Western practices and largely ignored in the mainstream business research discipline. Innovation, entrepreneurship, digital and sustainable transformation, and the development of diverse business skills offer a clear path to economic development and independence for Indigenous communities, and the betterment of society as a whole.

Rising to face this critical challenge, the Centre’s primary objective is to provide a space to facilitate co-creation and respectful collaborations between Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples to foster the economic and social development of Indigenous communities.

Two guiding principles:

Respect for traditional Indigenous knowledge its appropriate integration with Western approaches to innovation and business.

Collaboration with Indigenous communities to learn from and with them.

After successfully applying for a grant in 2021, MSc. Jodie Padilla and PhD. Carmen Padilla from Ecuador were able to develop the hybrid training “Equitable Leadership Program”, which, beyond empowering underrepresented groups, certifies them as promoters of equity and inclusion by a local university. Through the people trained, the ELP aims to foster competitiveness of the private, public and civil society sectors through professionals who have learned the technical and soft skills needed for the workplace of the next 10 years.

The ELP benefited 50 women in a state of vulnerability who neither work nor study. With the support of the US Embassy in Ecuador and other allies, the fellows graduated at the City Hall with the presence of the Vice Mayor of Guayaquil, the General Counsel in Guayaquil, among other personalities.

Since the start of the pandemic, I was able to attend the annual Scottish Entrepreneurship Research Seminar (SERS) for the first time on 6th September. Thanks to the organizers of the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, in collaboration with the Neurodiversity and Entrepreneurship Association (NEA) and the University of Strathclyde Strategic Themes, this was an amazingly unique and rewarding experience.  Quite fittingly, the Seminar  focused on Entrepreneurial Diversity as a Force for Good  which included two core themes: Neurodiversity as Inclusion in Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurship as a Bridge to Building Capabilities in Diverse contexts.

These themes found resonance in the recent work of work of Professor Nigel Lockett, Head of Department at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship (2019-2021) and aim to aptly reflect his contributions to academia and practice in highlighting Entrepreneurial Diversity as a catalyst of practice and growth in diverse contexts.  Beverly Best, Strathclyde University

The day’s event included sessions which highlighted the latest theoretical and practice-orientated perspectives of Entrepreneurial Diversity, as well as a ‘horizons’ session, which focused on new research ideas and perspectives presented by PhD researchers.  The practice-oriented sessions were though-provoking and inspiring as they showcased exemplary enterprises in the area of Neurodiversity and Entrepreneurship and served to engender stronger networking and the development of future collaborations between academics and practitioners.
