Sinopse:To achieve a better understanding of the nature of and reasons for the diversity among research-based spin-offs, through: the development of an conceptual model inspired by resource-based and neo-institutionalist theories that enables the identification of factors that explain such diversity; its application to develop a taxonomy of research-based spin-offs; a preliminary empirical validation of this taxonomy.


Development and empirical validation of companies’ taxonomy based on data from research spin-offs companies through a questionnaire and a few case studies. Integration and harmonization of data about existing spin-off companies in the participating countries, along with the gathering of new data, with a view of building an international database.

Outputs:- peer-reviewed articles (international: several)- presentations at scientific meetings (international: several)- Organization of scientific events (international: 1 conference)

- Other (national: 1 company database; international: annual reports)
