    Abstract

    The book records how academic entrepreneurship reflects how the changing roles of universities feeds into and is a response to specificities of regional development. The contribution of the book is to provide a critique of what is understood about the university spin-offs process and its link with regional development. The reason for the focus on the region lies in an attempt to explain geographical differences in technology-led economic development. How and why do universities through the spin-off processes contribute to imbalances in outcomes and opportunities.
