The Foundation for Enterprise Development and collaborators are pleased to announce the launch of a new, annual award ($1,500 per award, up to 3 awards) for promising research by an emerging scholar in the domain of broad-based employee participation and ownership.

The purpose of the award program is to identify innovative research in management or management-related disciplines that considers high-impact ideas in the context of business and society’s needs for employee empowerment, participative workforces, and wealth creation through broad-based equity and profit-sharing mechanisms, work practices, organizational structures, and innovation and entrepreneurial models. Research that has broad implications for practice and/or policy, and that addresses pressing economic and/or social problems are especially appropriate for this award.

The award is open to students (PhD) and post-docs worldwide; see the website below for full details of the award and its criteria.
