The Development of Entrepreneurship at a Research University (Rozwoj przedsiebiorczosci na uczelni badawczej)


  • Maksym W. Sitnicki

    () (Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv)


The urgency of the study arises from the need of research universities to implement the results of their scientific research into practice in an entrepreneurial business environment and further contribute the resulting financial returns to solving urgent problems of humanity. This article intends to identify the unique features of a person who possesses entrepreneurial skills and to contribute to make a further investigation on his/her potential. It will then become the basis for the construction of a human-centered model of entrepreneurship development at a university conducting research. To study the problem a model is used that takes into account the key processes of entrepreneurial development. The article proposes the definition of a new management category “entrepreneurial progressivism”. This reflects the essence of the process of university entrepreneurship development and defines the phenomenon of free innovative thinking in a comprehensive manner. The author also develops a human-centered model of entrepreneurship development and presents and discloses the properties of unique features that are inherent for people with an entrepreneurial bent of mind. This then justifies the interdependence between the success of a research university and the success of its alumni, known as innovative entrepreneurs. The study has a practical value for executives who are interested in improving the university’s efficiency and carries significance through the development of entrepreneurial potential.
