Please submit your extended abstract to International Joseph A. Schumpeter Society conference, ISS2024 abstract due latest 1st February. 

The comprehensive theme of this year’s ISS2024 conference is“Transformation: Creative Accumulation and Creative Destruction in the Economy”. Transformation as the theme focuses our attention upon change, which is a classical aspect of Schumpeter’s analysis of the economy and society. Creative accumulation and creative destruction refer to different organizational ways of forming transformation, either through large organizations or entrepreneurial ventures, respectively.    

Keeping in the spirit of the Schumpeter society, submitted papers can address a broad range of topics. Transformation and related notions of novelty, emerging challenges, and socio-economic change can be analyzed in different ways, perspectives and theoretical traditions. For example, papers are welcome which analyze industrial sectors, market systems, public policies, technologies, socio-economic contexts, history, geographical spatiality, amongst others. Due to Schumpeter’s interest in the individuals and organizations who are active in the creative accumulation and creative destruction, papers are also welcome on the micro-level of actors and agents who are engaged in activities like innovation, entrepreneurship, financing, R&D, and creating ecosystems.   

Do you know PhD students who are interested in Schumpeterian inspired research? There are special PhD events, including a workshop and poster sessions. Please encourage them to visit the website for details at
