Steffen Korsgaard and Patrick Sassmannshausen have won best paper award at NCSB conference.

At the NCSB conference in May Steffen Korsgaard and Patrick Sassmannshausen have been awarded the best paper prize for a paper entitled 'Beyond Discovery: Exploring the Field of Research Without a Discovery View'.

The paper reviews four alternative theoretical frameworks emerging within the research field of entrepreneurship that challenge the dominant discovery perspective. Core issues such as agency, uncertainty and process are identified across the alternatives as particularly important topics for future research within the field.

The paper is the result of a collaboration between BADM Associate Professor Steffen Korsgaard and Patrick Sassmannshausen who has been a visiting professor at the department as part of the DEU (Entrepreneurial University) project.
