Its scope covers a variety of contexts: start-ups, micro, small and large businesses, not for profits, corporate and family businesses, educators, students and the public sector. The objective of the research activity is to further our understanding of how entrepreneurship contributes to economic growth, competitiveness and social wellbeing, and underpins the entrepreneurship training and education activities of the Centre.
