This chapter considers recent changes in the Italian university systems, which were designed to stimulate academic entrepreneurship. Changes in the context of similar trends taking place in other European countries during the same period are described. The Italian case shows the on-going effort that national government and academic institutions have been devoting to enhance the successful commercialization of academic research. Specifically, the authors analyze differences in academic entrepreneurship generated by the 64 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical universities in Italy during the last decade. The authors also assess the impact of normative and structural support mechanisms on the universities' ability to engage with the market. Policy implications of these findings are also considered.
