The Centre for Entrepreneurship at the University of Liverpool and Newhall Publishing invite applications to the 2019 Newhall Entrepreneurship Research Impact Award.

In line with the Centre for Entrepreneurship’s mission, the purpose of this annual award is to celebrate and encourage methodologically rigorous and societally beneficial entrepreneurship studies contributing knowledge with the potential to make the world a better place. We aim to identify and reward peer-reviewed entrepreneurship research building strong links between practice and academia.
