The project MIG.EN.cUBE (Erasmus+ co-funded by the European Union)  is set to take into account the current critical issues in fostering migrant entrepreneurship in Europe, characterized by a fragmentation of incubation programs targeting migrant entrepreneurs, the diversity of actors that provide incubation activities, a strong focus on the “demand side” (i.e., migrant entrepreneurs) but a lack of training opportunities and exchange of best practices for incubation professionals targeting this group, and the super-diversity of (would-be) migrant entrepreneurs.  MIG.EN.CUBE seeks to enhance diverse incubation professionals' knowledge and competencies in dealing with (would-be) super-diverse entrepreneurs. The aim is to foster migrant entrepreneurs' opportunities to learn and experience how to start and grow a successful business.

"Migrant Entrepreneurship: developments at the intersection of policy and practice” is the project's final event organized by the Department of Management which will be held on the 27-28 April 2023 (Sala Borsa, Piazza del Nettuno – Bologna).

The workshop is a policy-practice-academic forum aiming to discuss entrepreneurial support initiatives and policy initiatives undertaken to diverse migrant entrepreneurs.

The workshop aims to share experiences of policies and practices of entrepreneurial support initiatives for migrants (e.g., pre-incubation, incubation, or acceleration programs), thus generating new evidence, increasing awareness of potential strengths and weaknesses of such initiatives, and stimulating academic-policy-practice dialogue to improve policy and practice.

For papers presentations, the deadline for the call for abstracts is 28th February 2023.

Participation is free, but you need to register.
