PhD course: Design science perspectives on innovation & entrepreneurship research
16-19 January 2023
The PhD course provides participants with in-depth knowledge of Design Science (DS) approaches in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship. The main objective is that doctoral students become familiar with and develop an in-depth understanding of the key frameworks, concepts, models, and paradigms that collectively form the DS foundation for research in this field. In addition, participants learn how to review DS-based articles and how to publish work informed by DS in top journals in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship. This PhD course will also offer opportunities for a limited number of participants to present and get feedback on papers or dissertation proposals.
This PhD course is offered by the ITEM group of the School of Industrial Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), in cooperation with EuroTech Universities, and is endorsed by the TU/e Graduate Program Industrial Engineering. This course is offered every two years, with earlier versions running in 2021, 2019, and so forth. The Jean-Baptiste Say Institute for Entrepreneurship (ESCP, Berlin) will offer a similar course on design science in the other years; accordingly, the first course in Berlin will be offered in early 2024.
