The Brown International Advanced Research Institutes (BIARI) ambitious new program is designed to provide a valuable professional development opportunity for young faculty in the early stages of their research and teaching careers.
From June 13th - June 26th 2010, we will convene 30-40 emerging scholars at an Institute on Technology Entrepreneurship and Management at Brown University in the United States.
This Institute will provide a forum for presenting and discussing research on a broad range of current themes in entrepreneurship studies and related disciplines. Perspectives will include, but are by no means limited to: development economics, organizational and economic sociology, management theory, and technology studies. The program will devote particular attention to similarities and differences between entrepreneurship in the ‘Global North’ and ‘Global South’; however, work with a purely Southern or purely Northern focus is also welcome, especially if the researcher is receptive to cross-national comparisons.
Instructors and keynote speakers at the Institute will be a mix of Brown faculty and leading scholars from institutions around the world. Further details about the Institute can be found here.
Technology Entrepreneurship and Management is one of four Institutes being held in June 2010. To learn more about the BIARI initiative and the application process. please visit our website at: http://brown.edu/BIARI

the Institute, participants will have access to Brown University's world class research facilities. Please send questions and comments to BIARI@brown.edu.
