ACE must have had a record number of visitors this summer. Among the more well-known we find Paul D Reynolds, Dean Shepherd, Bill Schulze, and Charlene Zietsma. All gave seminars and interacted with staff and research students in a number of ways. Apart from Paul they also served as keynotes at the ACERE conference, while Paul gave a presentation at the Department of Industry, Science & Innovation in Canberra. Paul offered a half day workshop in theory construction for research students, while Charlene and also Paul also appeared in Per’s research unit “Contemporary Issues in Entrepreneurship Research”. So did Martin Obschonka, who also gave a seminar during his weeklong visit in March. QUT staff and students further benefited from ACE adjunct Dean Shepherd’s expert through a researching & reviewing masterclass, and an interactive session on “Getting your Academic Voice Heard.”
Additional ACE visitors this summer included Andrew Maxwell, Etienne St-Jean, Solvi Solvoll, Martin Allmendinger, Mahamadou Biga Diambeidou, Karina Zittel, Carla Riverola, Pamela Nowell, Henrik Barth, Angelo Cavello, Naser Zamani. Of these, Angelo and Naser will be with us for some time with Henrik leaving mid-May after several months of developing research collaboration with members of ACE and QUT researchers.
