***Call for Papers***
8th Leuphana Conference on Entrepreneurship
Lüneburg, Germany, 18th-20th JANUARY 2018
Conference Website: www.leuphana.de/lce

Theme: “Evidence-based Entrepreneurship”

The task of science is to develop a solid knowledge base that informs practice to become more effective and efficient (Frese, Bausch, Schmidt, Rauch, & Kabst, 2012). However, in entrepreneurship (Frese et al., 2012) and related fields like management (Rousseau, 2006) there is a large gap between scientific knowledge and what is put into practice. Evidence-based entrepreneurship (EBE) seeks to close this gap by pursuing “science-informed practice of entrepreneurship” (Frese, Rousseau, & Wiklund, 2014, p. 209).
We invite papers that contribute to the promotion of evidence-based entrepreneurship. Purely conceptual papers are as welcome as theory-driven empirical work applying qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods. A variety of perspectives is appreciated to advance evidence-based entrepreneurship. Possible topics include:
•    Robust evidence in terms of randomized controlled trials, (large) longitudinal studies, as well as quantitative and qualitative meta-analyses
•    Ways to promote evidence-based entrepreneurship
•    Controversies in evidence-based entrepreneurship
•    Critical perspectives on evidence-based entrepreneurship
•    Translating evidence into practices
•    Innovative educational approaches to evidence-based entrepreneurship
•    Influence of evidence-based entrepreneurship on economic development
•    Policy-making in entrepreneurship based on evidence
