empirica conducts case studies for HEInnovate portal

In an effort to extend the resource base of the HEInnovate portal (, empirica has been charged to conduct seven new case studies about entrepreneurial higher education institutions (HEIs). The cases will cover HEInnovate’s seven dimensions: Leadership and governance, organisational capacity, entrepreneurial teaching and learning, knowledge exchange and collaboration, preparing and supporting entrepreneurs, the internationalised institution, and measuring impact. The universities examined will stem from different European countries and regions, including for example Croatia, Cyprus, Finland, France and Germany. HEInnovate is an initiative of the European Commission and the OECD. The portal offers a self-assessment tool and information for universities who wish to explore their innovative potential.
