Success and failure factors of university spin-offs related to business strategy, innovation management and intellectual property management. 

This project aims to explore the success and failure factors of university spin-offs in Greece, focusing on: 

  • business strategy,  
  • innovation management,  
  • intellectual property management.  

The aim of this collaboration is to study the factors leading to the successful exploitation of research results through university spin-offs, with a focus on the Greek ecosystem. By identifying best practice in intellectual property management and the development of effective commercial strategies, the collaboration will provide practical recommendations for founders, investors and technology transfer managers active in universities. The results of the proposed collaboration will contribute to the development and exploitation of intellectual property in Greece. In addition, the mapping of factors leading to the successful development of university spin-offs will contribute to the promotion of economic development and innovation, which will benefit to the society. 

This project is led by Christina THEODORAKI, teacher-researcher in the Entrepreneurship & Strategies Laboratory at TBS Education, and Antonios LIVIERATOS, teacher-researcher in the Business Administration Laboratory at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. 

It is scheduled to last 24 months, from December 2023 to December 2025. 

This project is financed within the framework of the Hubert CURIEN France/Greece Partnership by the French Institute of Greece.
