THIRD MISSION

KEY FACTS: ENGAGEMENT IN ACADEMIC ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Academic entrepreneurship refers to the interaction between university, industry, markets and society at large and encompasses different channels through which the output of academic research can be conveyed to the market. These channels include patents, licenses, university-industry collaborations, academic consulting and new venture creation. This latter, among the various mechanisms in support of the commercial exploitation of research, has received increasing attention. The actions to be implemented at the University of Bologna to support academic entrepreneurship can be grouped according to five main conceptual dimensions, representing five pillars on which the strategy builds:

  • inspiring and raising awareness;
  • scouting of Ideas;
  • pre-incubating services;
  • incubating;
  • accellerating and enabling growth
