Welcome to the website of the European Strategy, Entrepreneurship & Innovation (SEI) Doctoral Consortium. The aim of this consortium is to improve the doctoral-level education in the fields of entrepreneurship, innovation, and strategy in Europe. For that purpose, five universities have agreed to set up a consortium and organize an annual conference for PhD students working on these topics.
This website is dedicated to providing all essential information for the 2011 SEI doctoral consortium. The three-day conference will start on Friday evening, October 7th, and finish on Sunday afternoon, October 9th 2011. The venue of the conferes is the campus of HEC Paris near Versailles in France. Together with a strong faculty from the participating business schools, about twenty students have been selected to present and discuss their research ideas and proposals in order to receive feedback and constructive criticism. Accommodation and meals are generously provided by the HEC Foundation and the Atos Origin Chair at HEC Paris.
