Keithley Lecture Series - Dr. Thomas H. Zurbuchen

Universities as Entrepreneurial Change Agents


University-based training and research has made a broad impact in our everyday lives, and has contributed to the creation of new industries and economic growth. Historically, entrepreneurial successes in/around universities were often accidental, but there are many examples of entrepreneurial thinking and actions over decades of research and training. Through deliberate use of novel innovation and entrepreneurship focused teaching and methodologies, universities can accelerate the translation of university research into practice and at the same time educate students through engaged experiences, in both business and social innovation and entrepreneurship.  

We discuss the challenges and opportunities that research universities face today to create such educational and cultural transformations toward enhanced societal impact. We show examples for such training and translational programs built at the University of Michigan.
