Biography

Elco van Burg is a part-time associate professor of Entrepreneurship and Organization at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Most of the time he is living and working in a social enterprise in the rural highlands of Papua (Indonesia) as consultant for education and management (see www.lentera-vanburg.nl). He holds a PhD from Eindhoven University of Technology in entrepreneurship, as well as a MSc. Degree (cum laude) in Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences from the same university and a M.A. degree (cum laude) in Theology from Utrecht University.

Research

Elco’s research focuses on the role of imagination and actions of entrepreneurs in relation to their social context. Most of the studies employ process perspectives and some of them focus on providing knowledge and tools to engage in (re)designing entrepreneurship processes. For instance, Elco is currently leading a project on examining and potentially redesigning entrepreneurship and technology transfer mechanisms in the European space sector, co-funded by the Dutch Space Agency and ESA.

Teaching

Elco teaches a Master course on entrepreneurship research skills and supervises Master theses on entrepreneurship in the European Space Sector as well as the Indonesian context (preferably by Indonesian-speaking students). Moreover, he is involved in the supervision of a number of PhD students (Progress Choongo, Mwansa Chabala, Amr Farouk, Daniel Sagath, Etienne Schraven, Aun Falestien).
