Title: Academic entrepreneurship in Spanish universities: an analysis of the determinants of entrepreneurial intention
Author: Miranda González, Francisco Javier; Chamorro Mera, Antonio; Rubio Lacoba, Sergio
Abstract: El espíritu emprendedor académico es el proceso mediante el cual un individuo o grupo de individuos vinculados a través de su trabajo a una universidad o centro de investigación utilizan el conocimiento creado en su investigación para establecer empresas o actividades derivadas. Con la Teoría del comportamiento planificado como base, se estudió la influencia de las actitudes, las normas subjetivas y el control percibido sobre las intenciones empresariales de los académicos. El instrumento fue una encuesta realizada a 1178 académicos universitarios españoles en diversos campos del conocimiento, categorías profesionales y niveles de antigüedad en su institución. Un modelo de ecuación estructural identificado como el principal antecedente de la intención empresarial es la actitud hacia el emprendimiento. Esto a su vez fue influenciado por la creatividad, la utilidad percibida y la experiencia empresarial.Academic entrepreneurship is the process by which an individual or group of individuals linked through their work to a university or research centre use knowledge created in their research to set up business ventures or spin-offs. With the Theory of Planned Behaviour as basis, the influence of attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived control on academics’ entrepreneurial intentions was studied. The instrument was a survey conducted of 1178 Spanish university academics in various fields of knowledge, professional categories, and levels of seniority in their institution. A structural equation model identified as the main antecedent of entrepreneurial intention the attitude towards entrepreneurship. This was in turn influenced by creativity, perceived utility, and entrepreneurial experience.
