U-GOT KIES at the 15th Annual AGeCSO Conference in Nice
Several researchers from the Gothenburg Centre on knowledge-intensive innovation ecosystems (U-GOT KIES) presented their ongoing projects at the 15th Annual AGeCSO Conference in Nice, France, from June 22-24.
Maureen McKelvey, director of U-GOT KIES, delivered a plenary about the development and use of knowledge spanning the fields of innovation management and entrepreneurship.
Moreover, six other U-GOT KIES researchers presented ongoing projects in a special paper track entitled Entrepreneurial ecosystems, knowledge, regional dynamics and sustainability. The sessions included presentations ranging from Sustainable transitions in the fashion and textile cluster in West Sweden; the prevalence of student resources in entrepreneurial ecosystems; new knowledge and innovation in niche technology markets like sport-tech and horse-tech; and the importance of incubators for entrepreneurial action and strategy. Other topics included knowledge-intensive entrepreneurship in 3D printing and how it co-evolves with it surrounding innovation systems, and new contributions to endogenous growth theory through the evolution of knowledge in a national network context.
The Gothenburg team enjoyed several days in Nice, capped off by a seaside dinner off the Promenade des Anglais.
