The aim of this authoritative selection is to synthesize the burgeoning, heterogeneous literature on institutions and agents engaged in technological entrepreneurship at universities. These studies highlight the importance of institutional incentives and organizational practices in stimulating entrepreneurship, and clearly demonstrate the multiplicity of stakeholder objectives, perceptions and outcomes relating to it. However the evidence is much less clear on the effectiveness of property-based institutions designed to promote technological entrepreneurship, such as science parks and incubators. The volume covers four related topics: university licensing and patenting; science parks and incubators; university-based start ups; and the role of academic science in entrepreneurship.

Professor Siegel – a leading authority in the field – has written a scholarly new introduction which summarizes the key findings of these studies and discusses their managerial and policy implications.
‘The 30 pages in this book have been accurately chosen and classified by Siegel in chronological and logical order, allowing the reader to follow the evolution of the debate in this academic field. . . one could not hope for a more comprehensive volume.’
– Journal of International Entrepreneurship

‘Its contents will be of value to academic researchers. . . those in government/economic development may draw important lessons about the role of individual academics and institutions in the technology transfer/commercialization process that they are seeking to facilitate.’
– Sarah Cooper, International Small Business Journal
30 articles, dating from 1989 to 2005
