This far-reaching Research Agenda highlights the main features of entrepreneurial university research over the two decades since the concept was first introduced, and examines how technological, environmental and social changes will affect future research questions and themes. It revisits existing research that tends to adopt either an idealized or a sceptical view of the entrepreneurial university, arguing for further investigation and the development of bridges between these two strands.

This far-reaching Research Agenda highlights the main features of entrepreneurial university research over the two decades since the concept was first introduced, and examines how technological, environmental and social changes will affect future research questions and themes. It revisits existing research that tends to adopt either an idealized or a sceptical view of the entrepreneurial university, arguing for further investigation and the development of bridges between these two strands.

Offering insights into both mainstream and critical approaches, top international scholars discuss a wide range of studies from various analytical and methodological perspectives. Contributions envision the future development of the ‘alternative entrepreneurial university’, creating space for more localised and contextualised institutions that can be both responsive to the needs of their societies and proactive in shaping them.

Academics and practitioners interested in the entrepreneurial university will find this forward-looking Research Agenda to be crucial reading. It will also be beneficial for PhD researchers in framing key directions and questions for future research.
Critical Acclaim
‘From an academic point of view, entrepreneurial universities are still an emergent area in the field of entrepreneurship. This book, written by a group of European scholars at the leading edge on this topic, is offering new and fresh research perspectives. I found interest in every piece of research; however, I would recommend paying greater attention to those chapters taking a critical stance toward the phenomenon and those discussing the challenges and opportunities entrepreneurial universities might meet in the digital era.’
– Alain Fayolle, University of Cagliari, Italy

‘This important new book not only makes crystal clear the key role played by an entrepreneurial university in driving economic performance, it also paves a pioneering path directing research and thought leadership on how best to create, develop and sustain an entrepreneurial university. The book transcends both disciplinary boundaries and conventional thinking in forging an important new research area.’
– David B. Audretsch, Indiana University, US
