ABSTRACT

The Cambridge region in the UK has been considered to be one of the most innovative and entrepreneurial areas of the world. While many industrial areas of the UK and many other advanced economies have lost their dynamics, Cambridge has been growing with new industries, including those in the digital, semiconductor, instrument, and biomedical fields. A core element of the region’s innovativeness and entrepreneurship is the University of Cambridge, which has been there for over eight centuries since 1209. The university in fact has been playing a key role in making the region dynamic, innovative, entrepreneurial, and liable. This paper attempts to articulate core elements contributing to making the university entrepreneurial, based on the theory of the entrepreneurial university. To collect the data and information required to examine the issue, interviews were conducted in the Cambridge area twice in 2017, along with a subsequent review of the existing literature, statistical sources, and web-pages related to the subject
