Wednesday, November the 4th 2020
2pm – 5pm GMT
The ISBE Rural Entrepreneurship Network SIG and the conference track team are pleased to announce a special session focused on the impact of Covid-19 on the rural economy, to be held during the Virtually ISBE 2020 event in November.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had major economic and social implications, while the rural economy has not been exempt from these implications; the reliance of rural communities on particular sectors has resulted in a different pattern of impact whilst debates rumble on. Concerns remain regarding the viability and sustainability of the rural economy and rural communities. It is apparent from analysing key sectors within the rural economy there is no one dominant strategy that can help all rural areas. Whilst the management of rural businesses and the entrepreneurial attitude of business owners are more influential in their response and resilience than the policies.
The abstract submission deadline has now closed. Thank you to all authors who submitted their abstracts; the session chairs will be in touch shortly.
Registration for this session and for the whole Virtually ISBE 2020 event is available here.
