Transeo Academic Awards

The Transeo Academic Awards highlight and reward research papers dedicated to SME transfer in Europe and in Quebec (Canada). These awards are organized by Transeo, the European association for SME transfer. As a reminder, Transeo encourages the exchange of good practices and information in the field of SME transfer between experts from the private, (semi-)public and academic sectors, in order to stimulate the business transfer market at both local and international level.

One of Transeo’s major objectives is to stimulate academic research on sale/acquisition of SMEs in Europe (and beyond: non-EU countries such as Canada, Morocco, ... are also covered). In order to do so, Transeo launched in 2011 the first European contest rewarding the best research papers on business transfer : the “Transeo Academic Awards”. This contest is coordinated by Mr Bernard Jehin, Board Member of Transeo aisbl, under the academic presidency of Transeo Member Pr Lex van Teeffelen from the HU Business School Utrecht (the Netherlands).

The objectives of the contest are to give greater visibility to academic research, but also to raise awareness among academics and scholars about the importance to dedicate their future research work to this challenge. And of course an other objective of the contest is to put in the spotlight the best research on business transfer.
