Executive summary

Higher education is changing across European Union and OECD countries and there is a growing expectation from governments and society that higher education institutions (HEIs) should evolve into a new type of economic actor. These “entrepreneurial” HEIs are expected to prepare students to be more entrepreneurial and leverage their knowledge generation capabilities to make stronger contributions to economic development in partnership with industry and government.
