Program

 

The school is articulated into 4 days.

Each day is organised as follows: lecture sessions by expert scholars in the fields (selected among the invited speakers) in the mornings; paper development sessions (overseen by the organizing committee) in the afternoons. The aim of the paper development sessions is to allow students to present their work and receive feedback from experienced scholars in the field, keynote speakers and other participants.

During the last day, a final round table with entrepreneurs and investors aimed at identifying the most promising areas of research in the field of entrepreneurship, innovation and entrepreneurial finance will conclude the School activities.
