Entrepreneurialism in the European Higher Education Area

Schattock, M. (Ed.) Entrepreneurialism in Universities and the Knowledge Economy Diversification and Organizational Change in European Higher Education. Open University Press, London. ISBN: 978-0-335-23571-1. Pages: 232.

How entrepreneurial are European universities? This book, which is the product of a major EU funded research programme and is based on 27 institutional case studies, attempts to offer an answer to this and other related questions through a series of cross-national thematic studies. The study considers how national systemic characteristics in terms of financial arrangements, human resource management and institutional governance can have an impact on entrepreneurialism. The book also suggests ways in which individual initiative can be released and universities freed to make their contribution to the EU Lisbon Strategy.
