Who are we? What is our mission? What are our main research focus areas?

Welcome! We invite you to get to know us and collaborate. 

The Research Center for Entrepreneurship and Family Firms at Hasselt University, called RCEF, is an interdisciplinary group of experts passionate about family firms and entrepreneurship. Our mission is to create societal value through relevant and rigorous academic research, education, and high-quality services to business firms and organizations.

The RCEF logo highlights the wide range of expertise domains that are covered in research (and education) at RCEF. With a dual focus on entrepreneurship and family firms in the core, each triangle emphasizes our expertise in a specific research domain (e.g., Innovation, Corporate Governance, Strategic leadership & Succession).
