Implications of research often show great new insights for practitioners. Scientists usually disseminate these findings in scientific journals or at scientific conferences. In particular small and medium-sized enterprises often lack the time or capacity to acquire knowledge this way. A better transfer of such practice-relevant research results, therefore, holds the potential to noticeably improve the impact of research and, in particular, to support small and medium-sized enterprises. With a special focus on the knowledge context, the contextualisation of research and the transfer of knowledge through brokers, Chapter 17 shows how such a transfer of knowledge can be improved.

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.

What does relevance and impact in entrepreneurship mean, why should we care about making research relevant especially as early career researchers and which challenges do researchers face in order to realise impactful and relevant research? These are the questions raised in Chapter 1. The discussion helps us to understand and to distinguish the concepts of relevance and impact. Early career and leading researchers reflect on their tasks in both academic and non-academic worlds and are critically re-thinking the current ways of defining scholarly impact through well-known measurements. The authors suggest the encouragement of research that is meaningful for different target groups such as practitioners, academic organisations and wider society.
