ACADEMIC ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC
Languages of publication
Other than financial and non-financial effects for universities, academic entrepreneurship also generates new thoughts and ideas and allows for transfer of knowledge, leading to creation of inventions and innovations. Thanks to this, academic entrepreneurship represents a source of economic growth and competitiveness and contributes significantly towards sustainable development. This role appears to be especially important from the point of view of post-communist economies which are still to a certain extent transforming. The objective in this study is therefore to assess the level of academic entrepreneurship in one of the post-communist countries – a small economy with a traditional role played by education – the Czech Republic. Data gained via a questionnaire survey, the respondents of which were competent managers from 76 HEIs and faculties working in the Czech Republic, was compared with the relevant international studies.
