Strategy and structure of entrepreneurial universities in Sweden : The case of BTH, Chalmers and Linköping universities (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

These days’ universities are playing a major role in leading society to more social and economic growth by transferring knowledge to society, as this leads to new firms being created, new products and services injected into markets, and shifts society toward a more knowledge intensive system. This thesis is related to a larger study on Nordic entrepreneurial universities. The study is to be carried out between 2011 and 2013 and is funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond under the management of Professor Bengtsson. The purpose of this study as the first phase of this research project is to increase empirical knowledge regarding three Swedish university cases: Blekinge Institute of Technology, Chalmers University of Technology, and Linköping University and their strategies and structures regarding entrepreneurial policy and activities. The study illustrates that even within universities in the same country there are different unexploited resources and opportunities toward academic entrepreneurship. The study provides useful information about the entrepreneurial activities in three heterogeneous Swedish universities.
