DEV's Nitya Rao co-organising an event with the NBS on Gender and Entrepreneurship

Professor Nitya Rao of the School of International Development is working with the Norwich Business School to organise a one-day event, that aims to enhance the quality and quantity of gender and entrepreneurship research undertaken in developing economies.

'Innovating Impact: Enhancing Gender and Entrepreneurship Research Excellence in Developing Economies' will take place on the 12th May 2014 (between 10.30am and 6.30pm) in the Thomas Paine Study Centre, room 0.1.


The day’s programme has been carefully constructed and will benefit established academics, doctoral students and early career researchers based at institutions in developing countries, as well as those operating in the UK and Europe.  The keynote speakers are Professor Friederike Welter, Professor Susan Marlow, Professor Nitya Rao, and Dr Haya Al-Dajani
