Abstract:
The creation of new businesses has an important influence on economic growth, employment
and innovation. In this process, Entrepreneurial Universities play an important role in
providing opportunities to promote an entrepreneurial culture, facilitating the generation of
innovations and the development of the contemporary knowledge – based economy. For these
reasons, in recent years, Entrepreneurial Universities has been the subject of political and
academic interest. While governments are attempting to increase the Entrepreneurial
Universities’ capabilities to stimulate entrepreneurship and contribute to the regional
development, researchers are studying what are the most critical elements involved in this
phenomenon. In an attempt to consider both perspectives, our main purpose in this chapter is
to analyze how the Entrepreneurial Universities can contribute to the regional development.
To this end, the missions of two of the most entrepreneurial universities in Spain, the
Autonomous University of Barcelona and the University of Seville, are examined in depth
using the case study methodology. The main findings of the research show that both
Universities have developed an important number of actions in order to fulfill their three
missions (teaching, research, and entrepreneurial mission), to become more entrepreneurial
Universities and to increase their contribution to the regional development. The
implementation of entrepreneurial methodologies and courses, the stimulus of positive
attitudes toward entrepreneurship, the support for technology transfer and the development of
appropriate reward systems have been some of the most successful actions adopted by the
universities.
