The Entrepreneurial Universities Observatory will be a collaborative space of knowledge production, exposition of inspiring cases and connectivity between academics and makers. Its focus is on the movement of increasing the search for active ways which interface between university institutions and their socioeconomic environment.
This increasingly intense search can be seen in quite different nations and regions. It reflects the generalized perception of the importance of organized knowledge, quality education, and innovative entrepreneurship in order to better understand the challenges of societies and to formulate appropriate multi-criteria solutions based on the combination virtuous of science and sensitivity. This stimulates curiosity and the necessity to understand, follow, and when possible, influence this phenomenon.
It is necessary to know the original configurations created, which makes new roles of the university possible, and, also, recognizing as tensions generated by expectations, both from the academic community itself and from other interested parties, a university will assume roles that are distinct from the traditional ones.
An initiative of the Center for Technology Policy and Management of USP (PGT), the Entrepreneurial Universities Observatory proposes to develop projects and articulation of diverse organizations and instances, converge agendas, organize and produce content, hold events, promote connections content, hold events, promote connections and generate stimuli and subsidies for public policies.
