The structure of the conference

NORSI students: Present your research and receive the best comments! The NORSI conferences are known for opponents giving well-prepared, insightful, and in-depth comments to all the student presenters. The main rule is that only NORSI PhD students may present. If time allows, we might also welcome some alumni presentations.

PhD student presentations: The student presentations give interdisciplinary perspectives to a wide range of topics within innovation and entrepreneurship research. Prepared feed-back is given by one senior and one junior discussant.

NORSI students, alumni, faculty and partners: We invite you to stay for the whole conference, and we might ask you to be a discussant on a paper or two. Thank you in advance for your contributions!
