Conference Mission

“We live in an age of unprecedented technological development. Businesses and organizations, like the people working in them and the societies around them, face challenges as the pace of change increases. Creativity in the workplace has become one of the most in-demand skills – but how can it best be fostered? We know that innovation is one of the key sources of firms’ competitive advantage – but what is the surest route from a brilliant idea to bringing a new product to market? As entrepreneurial activity booms in the digital economy, how can sustainable new enterprises, from spin-offs to start-ups, be built? These three interlinked subjects are the focus of our Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) research symposium. Its mission is to feature and stimulate cross-disciplinary and holistic research projects, thereby contributing to the adaptive and renewal capacity of individuals and organizations, supporting education for today’s and tomorrow’s employees and businesspeople, informing policymakers and practitioners, and not only disseminating findings to stakeholders but also to allowing them to enrich the research agenda from the outside in.”

It is our great pleasure to invite you, also on behalf of our partner Maastricht University, to the 3rd Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Symposium which will be held on October 25 2021 in Vienna!

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Isabella Grabner
