Chapter 18: An ongoing journey: developing relevance and impact dimensions of entrepreneurship research
Restricted access

The debate about the relevance and impact of entrepreneurship research is broad. For this reason, taking into consideration the reflections of the authors’ experiences, the content from the chapters within this book and from discussions with early career, middle and leading researchers in the entrepreneurship field, the authors have developed five dimensions of relevance. From these sources, Chapter 18 finds the following main challenges to advancing in relevant and impactful entrepreneurship research to be: (1) identification of a target group, not only to find relevant results for each group but also to identify a way to transfer the results to different stakeholders according to their interests; (2) development of society; (3) development of the research field through our studies; (4) consideration of personal experiences to enrich research; and (5) the structural influences that could influence our decisions in the research process.
