The book offers the comprehensive picture of the academic entrepreneurship phenomenon in the Visegrad countries perspective and it is an insightful read for university managers responsible for the development of the academic entrepreneurship. It is also an interesting body of empirical knowledge for the academic entrepreneurship stakeholders, such as local business, organizations supporting entrepreneurship, and local government institutions.
This book draws on the results of international survey conducted among students and academics representing universities from the Visegrad Group countries. The survey was an important part of the project “Cross-border Bees in V4 Countries - Building of Educational Entrepreneurship Start-ups in V4 Group” granted by the International Visegrad Fund for 2016-2017 (project no. 11610602). University of Bielsko-Biala (project coordinator) collaborated with the Technical University in Ostrava from the Czech Republic, the Alexander Dubček University from Slovakia, and the Szent István University from Hungary.
