In this chapter, Massimo Colombo, Cristina Rossi-Lamastra and Mike Wright set out an agenda for future research on accelerators. They suggest that the agenda for future research is multi-leveled, involving the accelerators and their programs as well as the firms, entrepreneurs and mentors involved. As accelerators operate in a range of different contexts, a future research agenda needs to consider the dimensions of these contexts. As accelerators are a rapidly evolving phenomenon, there is also the imperative to consider the time dimension with respect to life-cycle issues.
