Project: Academic entrepreneurship: from knowledge creation to knowledge diffusion
- project duration
- 01-JAN-06 – 31-DEC-08
- This project focuses on Research-Based Spin-Offs (RBSOs), firms that are created around scientific knowledge generated in public research organizations (PROs). RBSOs play a key role in transforming scientific knowledge into new knowledge that is embodied in new technologies, products, services and processes. Hence, they play an important role as an engine of innovation and growth for Europe. In this project we seek to understand the conditions under which RBSOs effectively contribute to the generation of new knowledge and its dissemination in the environment in which they are embedded.
