Abstract and submission details

Karlshochschule International University is organizing an international conference on “Narratives and Innovation” with the aim to bring together scholars and practitioners from different contexts to discuss about the topic. The conference forms part of an interpretive approach towards business administration, strategic management, and entrepreneurship, by introducing instruments of semiotics, linguistics, narratology, and others. The topic of the conference therefore is open to a bundle of scientific and industrial perspectives.

Particularly desired are papers about the topics of the conference which cover any subject in the broader field of narrative and innovation.
