Former ACE researcher Rene Bakker, now an Assistant Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship at Indiana University, has won the 2016 Kelley School of Business Research Award. The award recognizes Rene’s research performance over the past year, culminating in a set of publications in the leading management journals. The award is in part based on the work on the Australian mining industry which Rene undertook during his time at ACE. Rene was with ACE from 2011 to 2015 first as a postdoc and later as a senior research fellow. You’ll find out more about Rene and the Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research in this ACE Spotlight Interview conducted by Annelore Huyghe.
