The research at CeFEO is conducted in different research projects that involve one or more affiliated researchers.

Research at CeFEO is conducted through different research projects in the areas of family business and/or ownership (e.g., entrepreneurship; resource management; internationalization; product development and innovation; ownership transitions in terms of succession and exit strategies—sale, M&A, dissolution; failure and bankruptcy, CSR; and crowdfunding) and involve one or more affiliated researchers, often with other scholars from JIBS and/or from other universities and business schools.

CeFEO research strives to be interdisciplinary. For instance, historically at JIBS, researchers from business administration have been encouraged to collaborate with researchers from other disciplines (e.g., economics and commercial law) either within or across specific research projects. This approach creates unique breadth in the center’s research activities.
