The Entrepreneurial University Conference

2015 UiT Conference Developing the Entrepreneurial University

The conference presents the entrepreneurial mind; from business, government/regional/local administration as well as from the university sector, who wants to learn from successes and failures in commercializing university innovation around the world. This conference will present a fresh analysis on how ten universities from Finland, Norway, Sweden, UK and USA organize themselves to deal with society’s demands for innovation. Integration of research, education and community engagement with society’s expressed need for commercial innovation is a very challenging task for universities, and requires both long term commitment to create sustainable changes and long term funding policies.
