IGL Winter Research Meeting

IGL will host a Winter Research Meeting & PhD Workshop on 12 and 13 December 2018 at Nesta in London, UK.

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. 

The IGL Winter Research Meeting 2018 is taking place on Thursday, 13 December 2018 at Nesta, in London.

On Wednesday, 12 December 2018,  ahead of the IGL Winter Research Meeting, we are organising a workshop for PhD students. For more information or to attend, please contact us at innovationgrowthlab@nesta.org.uk.


We are inviting researchers to submit abstracts for research to be presented at the IGL Winter Research Meeting 2018. 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 Winter Research Meeting serves as an opportunity to present and receive feedback on early-stage as well as ongoing or completed work.

We invited submissions of abstracts on the following themes:

  • Science and innovation
  • Entrepreneurship and business growth

Submission deadline is Monday, 1 October 2018.
