Download Academic Entrepreneurship: Unternehmertum in der Forschung by Achim Walter, Michael Auer PDF

By Achim Walter, Michael Auer

Die Frage, wie aus Forschungsergebnissen in shape "roher" Technologien wertschaffende Unternehmen entstehen, wird angesichts drohender Wohlstandsverluste gerade in klassischen Industrienationen von Vertretern der Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft und Politik zunehmend diskutiert. Universitäten und öffentliche Forschungseinrichtungen sollen nicht nur unternehmerisch denken, sondern auch handeln. Damit Unternehmensgründungen aus der Forschung wertvolle Beiträge zur Schaffung von Arbeitsplätzen, Innovation und regionalem Wohlstand leisten können, müssen akademische Gründer ihre Technologien in marktgerechte Produkte überführen können. In der Praxis ist akademisches Entrepreneurship bislang jedoch ein relativ schwach verstandenes Phänomen.
Dieser Sammelband umfasst aktuelle Studien zu Einflussgrößen des Wachstums akademischer Spin-offs. In konzeptionellen Beiträgen wird dargelegt, mit welchen Methoden und Instrumenten sich Unternehmertum in Forschungseinrichtungen gezielt fördern lässt. Fallstudien geben sehr anschaulich einen Einblick in das administration und die institutionelle Unterstützung akademischer Unternehmensgründungen.
