Research at UGCE
Our research, education and business development & entrepreneurship support activities are based on the "engaged scholarship" philosophy (Van de Ven, 2008), meaning a close connection between excellent research and teaching to real life problems. UGCE was deliberately organized within the university, to ensure that a close connection between the practical support we offer for business development, research and education is guaranteed. The combination of research based consultancy, academically supported business development support and teaching for regular students and executive programmes is a strength of UGCE model.

In our research, we work on theory development, several data gathering methods, experiments, living labs on individual, organizational and eco-system level.

You will be part of a relative new (since 2013) and young team (12 members). In close collaboration with full professors in and associated to the group, and the core group of assistant professors you can further develop your research. There are also possibilities to work with PhD students in the group and other colleagues from other related research groups. All applicants should have completed their PhD, or be close to completion, and specialized in the field of Entrepreneurship or related fields.

The capabilities of UGCE are organized in three connected pillars of a research centre, an Entrepreneurship College and Venturelab North, a living lab for active business development support. Our research is embedded in SOM, the graduate school of Faculty of Economics and Business. We are teaching in most schools and extra curricular for all interested students, and for business development and entrepreneurship support we work together within Northern Knowledge with SBGG (business generator Groningen), Triade, Research & Valorisation, UMCG, Energy Academy Europe, Hanze University of Applied Sciences and we are allied via a double professor position to the Center of Entrepreneurship NIKOS of the University of Twente. Internationally we work together with among others Uppsala University (EIT-Health venturelab, Erasmus +), Higher school of Economics (HSE-Moscow), Sheffield University (European research summer school on Entrepreneurship), Thapar University, India and Fudan University China.

UGCE is a relative autonomous unit, it is part of the Faculty UCG and as stated above works closely together with Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) which is AACSB and EQUIS accredited.
