The University of Copenhagen and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) invite you to a joint conference on Incentives, Management and Organization (IMO) and Entrepreneurship Economics (ENT) on 7-9 October 2021. Based on information currently available, we plan an in-person event. Speakers and discussants should plan to come to Copenhagen and stay for the length of the event. The audience members however can select to attend in-person or connect via Zoom. This plan is of course subject to changes depending on the COVID-19 situation. The organizers will continue to monitor the situation and will switch to a remote event if necessary.

The two groups have joined forces to explore issues of common interest and facilitate exchange between researchers with overlapping interests. All papers will be considered for joint and parallel sessions.

Incentives, Management and Organization (IMO) covers areas such as organizational economics, personnel economics, management and productivity, incentives and contracts, bounded rationality, and behavioral economics.

Economics of Entrepreneurship (ENT) covers the interaction between entrepreneurship and institutions, financing (venture capital/business angels), experimentation, job creation, theory of the firm, and entrepreneurship from an industrial organization perspective.

Papers selected for presentation will be eligible for the Prize for Outstanding Research in Organization and Management and Entrepreneurship. We thank the Danish National Research Foundation under the Niels Bohr Professorship for sponsoring this year’s prize. If you would like to have your paper considered for the Prize, please let us know in your submission in the comment box.

The keynote speakers for the conference are Oriana Bandiera (LSE and CEPR) and Ross Levine (Berkeley Haas).
