To identify research gaps, select suitable theories for your (empirical) studies and  develop your own research contributions, you need to have a sound understanding of the  field’s past and future trends. This course will provide you with a deeper knowledge on  the themes, theories and methods that have been, are or will be prevalent in the  entrepreneurship field. Course participants will learn to identify trends and fads in the  research field and develop criteria to critically assess the strengths and weaknesses of  emerging research trends. Throughout the course, participants also will apply the insights  from the different sessions to their research topic, with the aim to further develop the  overarching theoretical framing and contributions of their research projects. Some of the  course sessions will include own writing time and possibilities for individual feedback.
