La création d’entreprise:une perspective attractive pour les chercheurs publics?

(VF)Cet article vise à expliquer l’intention de créer une entreprise de la part des chercheurs publics français. Il s’appuie sur les modèles d’intention. Les résultats de l’étude menée, via la technique des équations structurelles, sur les déclarations de 744 chercheurs, valident le modèle testé. Ils montrent, par ailleurs, que l’intérêt limité des chercheurs pour la création d’une entreprise s’explique davantage par leur faible attrait pour cet acte que par un manque de confiance en leur capacité à le mener à bien. La contribution repose aussi sur l’étude des déterminants de l’attrait et du sentiment de capacité à créer une entreprise. (VA)In this paper we address the question of why researchers may intend to launch a new venture based upon their research. Our study of 744 French researchers from public science institutions is based on intention models. Our results, obtained through structural equation modelling, are twofold. First, they show significant support for intention models where intention is correlated with perceived feasibility and attitude toward the act. Attitude toward the act represents a stronger influence on intention than a perceived lack of feasibility. Second, determinants of attitude and feasibility are studied.
