June 2013

The European Commission has launched a call for a study project to develop a stronger evidence base of the entrepreneurial potential of higher education. The Commission wants the study to provide a review and analysis of existing and emerging types and models; to establish practical 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; and to undertake 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.
Deadline for proposals: August 30th 2013.
