IGL Research Meeting - June 2017

As part of IGL2017 Global Conference, IGL is hosting a research meeting on June 14, 2017.

The IGL Research Meeting is a forum for researchers to discuss design-stage, ongoing and completed academic research that uses experimental methods to improve our understanding of the drivers of innovation, entrepreneurship and growth, and potential interventions to accelerate these. 

Call for Abstracts

We are inviting researchers to submit abstracts for research to be presented at the IGL Research Meeting 2017. We welcome empirical research that provides evidence on the best approaches to increase innovation, support high-growth entrepreneurship and accelerate business growth. More specifically, we encourage abstracts on design-stage, ongoing and completed randomised controlled trials, as well as abstracts for review papers synthesising evidence or drawing on generalizable lessons learned.

The IGL Research Meeting serves as an opportunity to present and receive feedback on early-stage as well as ongoing or completed work.

We invite submissions of abstracts on the following themes:

  • Science and innovation
  • Entrepreneurship and business growth

The call for abstracts is now closed.


We are pleased to offer a (limited) number of bursaries to help cover travel, accomodation and registration expenses for PhD students and researchers. More information about this will be available soon. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact innovationgrowthlab@nesta.org.uk
