Entrepreneurial University – synergy of entrepreneurial actions of academicians – is it possible?

Industrial as well as Small, Medium and Micro Enterprise development, based on Innovations and Technology is one of the most effective ways of helping the increase of manufacturing effectiveness in all parts of the World.
Accordingly, Innovations and Technology Development are the most appropriate way to promote and stimulate innovation activity in both scientific community and the industrial sector. This way the partnerships between the academia, research community and the industrial facilities in both public and private sector should be a back bone of further development of each society.
Based on those facts, part of the research activities of any academic institution should also be dedicated to increase entrepreneurial potential of the university students and development of the innovative approaches which will lead to larger correlation between large industry, SMEs and universities. This leads to high necessity of promoting the entrepreneurial university concept, as the only potential way to motivate old European academic institutions to change in the direction of commercialization of their research work.
