Based on sound empirical research, it also explores concepts like academic entrepreneurship, start-ups, and entrepreneurial ecosystems. A key text on the Chinese education sector, the book will be of interest to scholars and researchers of higher education, Chinese studies, science, technology and innovation studies, business economics and management, academic entrepreneurship, and public policy.
