Humboldt Meets Schumpeter? Interpreting the ‘Entrepreneurial Turn’ in European Higher Education

  • Rómulo PinheiroEmail author
Part of the Higher Education Dynamics book series (HEDY, volume 45)


Universities are increasingly pressured to respond to external imperatives and demands, while, at the same time, they are expected to enhance both their efficiency and accountability. This is leading to the local adoption of key, structural and cultural features associated with the model or global script of the entrepreneurial university. This chapter undertakes a critical analysis of the premises associated with the latter model, and provides new insights on the sustainability of the “entrepreneurial turn in higher education” against the backdrop of the challenges facing European universities.


Enrepreneurial university Sustainability of entrepreneurial model Institutionalization Multiversity Global scripts European higher education
