A Research Agenda for the Entrepreneurial University

Edited by Ulla Hytti

This far-reaching Research Agenda highlights the main features of entrepreneurial university research over the two decades since the concept was first introduced, and examines how technological, environmental and social changes will affect future research questions and themes. It revisits existing research that tends to adopt either an idealised or a sceptical view of the entrepreneurial university, arguing for further investigation and the development of bridges between these two strands.

Chapter 4: Entrepreneurial universities in post-Soviet countries

Rita Kaša, Mari Elken and Anders Paalzow


The notion of entrepreneurial universities has often been analyzed in the context of developed liberal democracies. This chapter focuses on a less traditional context and takes stock on research concerning the development of entrepreneurial universities in the region of former Soviet Union. This region represents a diverse set of countries which after the fall of Soviet Union all embarked on a path of (re)constructing their higher education systems. The basis for the chapter is a literature review, examining the body of knowledge generated on entrepreneurial universities in 15 post-Soviet countries. The review finds a rather uneven body of knowledge with most diverse research on Estonia and Russia. The chapter proposes a research agenda for the study of entrepreneurial universities in the post-Soviet region recognizing particularities and challenges of each local context.
