Researching scientific entrepreneurship in New Zealand
Commercialisation of Research, Science and Technology (RS&T) in New Zealand and elsewhere tends to be based on models of technology transfer which are more appropriate for existing economic sectors than for new ones. Scientific entrepreneurship offers another approach to innovation, but research on this phenomenon faces a number of difficulties. Alternative approaches are required. This paper uses a methodology based on the precepts of critical realism, retroductive enquiry and grounded theory to develop a metacompetency model which has the potential to increase the incidence of scientific entrepreneurship. Whether or not this increase actually happens will depend on a number of challenges being overcome, and the paper ends with a discussion of implications for innovation policy and management.
