ECSB/ISBE Webinar series continues on 3rd April 2019 at 3.00 pm CET with an interesting discussion on mediation and moderation analyses. Professor Francisco Liñán’s (Anglia Ruskin University and University of Seville) presentation is titled “Mediation and moderation in SEM analysis: an example with national level data”.

In this seminar, Francisco Liñán will present a detailed review of the empirical analysis carried out in their paper from 2013 [Liñán, F., Romero, I., & Fernández-Serrano, J. (2013). Necessity and opportunity entrepreneurship: The mediating effect of culture. Revista de Economía Mundial, 33, 21-47]. It analyses the role of income (measured as GDPpc) on the entrepreneurial activity rate (TEA rate and Opportunity/necessity ratio). It particularly considers the mediating role of cultural dimensions (Schwartz, 1994). Additionally, it considers the effect of culture on entrepreneurship, including a moderating role of GDPpc. The webinar will explain how these mediation and moderation analyses can be carried out and the interpretation of the results.
