Open call for tender EAC/09/2013 – Study on supporting the entrepreneurial potential of higher education

The European Commission launches an open call for tenders with a view to develop a stronger evidence base of the entrepreneurial potential of higher education and derive lessons for policy development. The study should help in gaining a better understanding of the effective possibilities of higher education institutions in developing entrepreneurial activities, capabilities and characteristics.

The results to be achieved are the following:

  • A review and analysis of existing and emerging types and models for realising the entrepreneurial potential of higher education in curricular and extracurricular activities and on an institutional level;
  • Development of a practical set of interrelationships and dependencies of curricular, extracurricular, and institutional factors enabling the development of entrepreneurial potential of higher education in the form of a framework of recommendations;
  • Development of 20 in depth case studies.
The study should look at various participants involved in higher education and entrepreneurship: higher education institutions, students, lectures and staff, entrepreneurs, incubators, companies and businesses of all types, public bodies, governments, charities and any other relevant stakeholder involved.

New deadline: 9 September 2013

Budget: EUR 300 000
