Since 2022, the WIFU has had a research cooperation agreement with the Center of Excellence on Family Business & Entrepreneurship at the Foundation for Research, Education and Development (FRED) in Mysuru, India. The centre focuses on research, consulting and education in family businesses and business families.

To further deepen our cooperation, the WIFU and the FRED are organising a conference, ‘Fusion through Conversation’, in September 2023 in India. We are inviting contributions from academia (management, family business research, social or regional sciences), consultants and members of business families.

Further details can be obtained here or from PD Dr. Tobias Koellner.
