STEP Project European Meeting – Teaming-up for Research with Impact
The STEP Project was founded in 2005 by Babson College (USA), ESADE (Spain), HEC (France), Jönköping International Business School (Sweden), Bocconi University (Italy), University of St. Gallen (Switzerland), and University of Witten/Herdecke (Germany). After 15 years the STEP Project Global Consortium becomes an independent organization. STEP Project aims to be a leading context-sensitive applied research initiative, that explores business families across generations and develops solutions that have immediate application for business leaders.
Since STEP’s founding in 2005, a number of scholarly and practitioner-focused publications have been written based on STEP ideas and data. Scholarly output includes journal articles, conference presentations, dissertations, and books. STEP-based journal articles have emerged in Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Family Business Review, Journal of Family Business Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, Small Business Economics, and other scholarly journals. Our scholars have presented and won awards at leading scholarly conferences such as the Academy of Management (AoM), Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference (BCERC), Family Enterprise Research Conference (FERC), Family Firm Institute (FFI), International Family Enterprise Research Academy (IFERA), and European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM).
This meeting is a great opportunity to meet, work together on our current projects, discuss new projects on the new dataset, prepare for the STEP Project Global Summit and more.
