We are delighted to announce that immediately after the IWP Conference 2012 the EAWOP Small Group Meeting “Advances in the Psychology of Entrepreneurship” will take place in Sheffield (June 29 – July 1st, 2012).

The aim of this small group meeting is to advance the field of Psychology of Entrepreneurship in Europe and beyond. This will be achieved by bringing together researchers working in the field and stimulating intense discussion, by encouraging participants to make links between each other’s work and by stimulating cross cultural collaboration. The contributions for the meeting will be clustered around four broad topics. Provisionally, these are 1) Entrepreneurial Personality: From trait to process and interaction; 2) Advancing research on entrepreneurial careers; 3) Entrepreneurial leadership; and 4) Affect and cognition in entrepreneurship. A cross-cutting theme throughout the meeting will be to draw attention to cultural aspects.
