Boards of directors need to be understood as a context-bound phenomenon that requires careful attention to many different meanings and interpretations of the context. The latter is not only about the situational trajectories in which boards are created and evolve, but it also calls for many disciplines’ theoretical lenses that would offer a holistic apprehension on boards. In this introductory chapter of the Research Handbook on Board of Directors, we discuss issues related to this challenge when researching boards of directors, before presenting the different chapters that constitute the core of this volume.

The growth of entrepreneurship education has played an important role in building up an academic infrastructure for entrepreneurship research. In this chapter we identify exemplary European contributions to entrepreneurship education research and practice. We discuss the evolution of entrepreneurship education as a scholarly field in Europe with particular emphasis on its social infrastructure and cognitive development. Thereafter we use a systematic literature review to identify important contributions made by European-based scholars to entrepreneurship education research published in peer-reviewed academic journals. Based on the review we identify top research journals with the most published articles on entrepreneurship education, the most cited articles, and the most influential scholars. We end the chapter with a description of the European Entrepreneurship Education Award (EEEA) together with summary analyses of the work of the six Award Laureates.
