About this book

Introduction

What does it mean for a university to be entrepreneurial? This global concept, which enables universities to attain social accountability through innovation and participation in local economic development, has become more important than ever in today's knowledge society. This book considers how an entrepreneurial university can improve the social and economic development of countries which are lagging behind in cutting-edge technologies and science-based innovation. Exploring university models in two moderately innovative countries, Spain and Croatia, this book examines how universities can work within the capacities of the business sector while still preserving the universities' social and cultural identities.

Using empirically-based case studies and survey results from faculty members in several European countries, the authors reveal the challenges and opportunities to becoming a more entrepreneurial university. It is a great resource for researchers and faculty looking to adopt this paradigm and gain perspective on how it can be applied globally.
