Working papers

In 2009 Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum started publishing a new series of Working Papers.  These are available for download on, and are part of our ambition to make quality research available to a wider audience, not only within the academic world.

Scholars from different disciplines are invited to publish academic work with the common denominator that the work has  policy relevance within the field of entrepreneurship, innovation and SMEs.

The working papers published in this series have all been discussed at academic seminars at the research institution of the author.
