Adelaide, here we come!
ACERE Conference 2015 call for abstracts now open.
The annual Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research Exchange (ACERE) Conference is the premier Australian-based event dedicated to the growth, support and promotion of entrepreneurship. It is designed to be a highly developmental and professionally rewarding experience for all delegates.
Featuring high-calibre researchers and research users from across the nation and throughout the world, it’s a stand-out fixture on the academic and professional development calendar.
The 2015 Conference, to be held at the stately North Terrace campus of the research-intensive University of Adelaide from February 3 – 6, will be no exception. So if you have some exciting research to share with the world, this is your chance to shine.
Of particular note for 2015, we have a special session planned on business model design and reconfiguration, to be run in conjunction with the Conference.
As in previous years, of course, there will also be a wide range of other highly informative and stimulating sessions, including:
- Keynote addresses from pre-eminent scholars around the globe
- Paper presentations and development workshops
- Lively networking and social functions PLUS bonus Policy Forum for early registrants
This is an outstanding opportunity to extract even greater value from your attendance at the 2015 ACERE Conference.
A limited number of early registrants will have the option of participating in an additional one-day pre-conference Policy Forum on Entrepreneurship, Ecosystems and Regional Development at no extra charge.
The Forum will feature keynote presentations from leading academics Professor David Audretsch and Professor David Storey on the greatest challenges affecting policy in this area, and how they might be resolved. The morning session will focus on local issues, using the growing Adelaide Entrepreneurial Ecosystem movement as a case study, before moving on to international perspectives in the afternoon.
Spirited interactive engagement will be sought from the floor throughout.
Abstract submissions are open now and will close on Monday 11 August 2014.
Registrations will open soon. For general information, registration fees will be as follows;

And remember, R&D goes best with a little R&R
The 2015 ACERE Conference will almost exclusively take place on the picturesque North Terrace campus of The University of Adelaide, right in the heart of the CBD.
You’ll be within a short walk of numerous memorable attractions, including the Art Gallery of South Australia, the South Australian Museum, Festival Theatre, the newly redeveloped Adelaide Oval, Rundle Street’s vibrant cafe strip and numerous fine dining restaurants. A refreshing dip in the lapping waters of Glenelg Beach – a popular destination in the hot Adelaide summer – will also be just a quick tram ride away.
But don’t restrict yourself to the city. With very little additional time and effort, you can make a true holiday of it by exploring some of South Australia’s many other wonderful getaways.
Five world-class wine regions will be right on your doorstep: the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale, and the Coonawarra. There’s the stunning natural wonder of the Flinders Ranges, Kangaroo Island and the mighty Murray River… the picturesque towns and villages of the Fleurieu coastline… incredible fishing and diving off Eyre Peninsula… and plenty more.
