The CRSE – events progress

November 2015 saw the launch of the Centre for Research on Self Employment (CRSE), an innovative think tank devoted to understanding self-employment and its impact on the economy.

The think tank brings together the world’s leading academics from a wide range of disciplines to build a deeper body of knowledge about modern freelancing. IPSE was a catalyst in its creation.

The CRSE launch event has been shortlisted as a finalist for Event of the Year at the Trade Association Forum annual awards. The event acted as a springboard for vitally important follow-up projects:

  • Release of ‘The Handbook of Research on Freelancing and Self-Employment’ which provides a comprehensive overview of the latest thinking on freelancing.
  • Growing library of newly published research including videos and reports on freelancing trends, economic impact and more.
  • Members of the CRSE presented at the notable European Academy of Management (EURAM) annual conference in Paris. A successful networking event hosted by the CRSE at the conference was attended by leading minds in the areas of entrepreneurship and solo self-employment.
  • Future engagement with policy makers using academic research to address key issues effecting self-employment.
  • Next annual research workshop: 24-25 November 2016.
