2015 (English)In: Handbook of Research on Global Competitive Advantage through Innovation and Entrepreneurship / [ed] Luís M. Carmo Farinha, João J. M. Ferreira, Helen Lawton Smith & Sharmistha Bagchi-Sen, IGI Global, 2015, 569-588 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Several countries have introduced programs intended to develop or increase their competitiveness. Entrepreneurial universities in particular are considered critical actors in order to reach this goal. While in advanced economies many of this type of universities have been established over the years, this is not the situation in emerging economies. These economies are only in the beginning of this development. Against this background and the activities found in Turkey, the aim of this chapter is to shed light on the current state of Turkish universities regarding their development into entrepreneurial universities. The findings reported may be useful for academics, policymakers, and other actors interested in the topic.
