Description

This edited international collection draws on the experiences of entrepreneurship educators, researchers, incubation centre managers and academic leaders to illustrate the many challenges and opportunities facing higher education institutions as they endeavour to create and maintain the entrepreneurial university. The book also uses findings from a major EU-funded five country project (THEI2.0) - focused on enhancing the implementation and impact of the EU-OECD’s HEInnovate tool - to offer valuable strategies to help universities become more entrepreneurial, especially in the current Covid and post-Covid environment. The book is of value to a wide range of internal and external stakeholders operating within the higher education landscape, including University Presidents/Rectors, senior academic managers, educators and researchers, as well as industry and support bodies.

The objective of the book is to help readers better understand the many challenges and opportunities facing higher education institutions as they endeavor to create and maintain the entrepreneurial university, and to offer some valuable strategies to help them become more entrepreneurial, especially in the current Covid and post-Covid environment. The book’s core value lies in the fact that it draws on real experiences and practices of those in the field, articulates key takeaway messages, and suggests potential strategies and actions to create impact.

Target audiences and potential users include senior academic leaders, academic managers, entrepreneurship/entrepreneurial educators, incubation center managers, technology transfer managers, and more, seeking to make their university more entrepreneurial, maintain their entrepreneurial status, critically reflect on their current level of entrepreneurialism, explore new opportunities to enhance their entrepreneurial reputation, or implement strategies to consolidate their entrepreneurial endeavors within the current challenging environment.
