Anastasia Cozarenco (Aix-Marseille School of Economics) and Ariane Szafarz (ULB, Centre Emile Bernheim and CERMi) are the winners of the 2014 European Microcredit Research Award co-sponsored by the European Microfinance Network and the Hague University of Applied Sciences. The award was granted for the innovative scientific work presented in the paper "Microcredit in Developed Countries: Unexpected Consequences of Loan Ceilings." This paper develops the first theoretical model specific to microfinance in developed countries, and participates in the conversation on the nascent regulation of this young industry. The research has been carried out in the framework of an "Interuniversity Attraction Pole" on social enterprise, funded by the Belgian Science Policy Office.

Dr. Vuong Quan Hoang of Centre Emile Bernheim and colleagues have the new paper on the methodology of measuring corporate/organization inclusive innovation capacity, named as i2Metrix, published in the inaugural issue of ASEAN Journal of Management & Innovation (ISSN: 2351-0110; URL: http://journal.stamford.edu/index.php/ajmi).

This paper discusses the issue of measuring corporate innovation capacity, and proposes a method for implementing such measurement program (i2Metrix). The actual survey on 19 Vietnamese leading businesses suggests that the i2Metrix design is working and can be further improved for future use. Responses by firms‟ executives show not only their awareness of innovation but also interest in management tools and methods to make use of this crucially important but elusive concept and resource. Insights from the survey highlight a disciplined process of innovation, adoption, and diffusion.

Napier, Vu Kim Hanh, Nguyen Manh Cuong, & Tran Tri Dung (2014). “Measuring Corporate Innovation Capacity: Experience and Implications from i2Metrix Implementation in Vietnam,” ASEAN Journal of Management & Innovation, Volume 1, Number 1, pp. 1-17.
